My name is Jessi and I have been in the childcare industry for 7 years. I have my Certificate III in Children’s services, and I am currently studying my Diploma of Early Childhood Education and Care. I’m passionate about constant professional improvement, and staying in touch with the latest research and theory. I have held many differing roles within the sector including assistant, cook, room leader and relief Director. Each role has given me unique perspectives on the role adults can play in the early years of a child’s life. I have a beautiful 2 year old son named Cooper,who joins me at the centre some days. In my spare time I have co-owned a candle company with my best friend and owned a scrabble art business. I enjoy watching movies, spending time outdoors with my son, cooking and catching up with friends.
