Living & Learning Henderson

Our Team

Our wonderful teachers are specifically chosen because of their ability to relate to the children and families who utilise our centre. Using a combination of their skills and experiences, and those of the advisory support team, we are dedicated to making a difference in the lives of children and their families.

Our teaching team are committed to providing nurturing environments where children feel comfortable, secure, loved so they can be confident in their learning.

A Little about Us

We actively encourage and facilitate our team to keep up to date with new ideas, current research and new procedures in Early Childhood Education through professional development such as management meetings, in-service training and circulation of resource material and early childhood articles. We have robust teacher registration systems that are overseen by qualified teachers.

Our innovative and exciting environment is designed to inspire the teachers who work in them, while respecting their needs and desire to utilise their individual creativity to incorporate fun and learning for the children in their care.
