Linda Lang, Centre Manager
Why did you decide to pursue a career in early childhood education?
It inspired me. I started my journey as a mother help at my children's centre, then as a special needs teacher aide. That made me want to do more for children, so I started my training. I’ve been working in ECE for 30 years now!
What do you love most about what you do?
Every day is different, and I treasure the ability to make a difference and advocate for the children and families.
What makes your centre special?
The teachers and the connections they have made with the families – we are a very family orientated centre, and the environment we create is like a home away from home. We also enjoy the cultural diversity that comes with having children and staff of different nationalities.
What’s your favourite time of year at the centre?
I love celebrations such as Easter and Christmas as it gives us the opportunity to become more creative and have fun.
What do you like to do in your free time?
I enjoy beach combing, walking our Jack Russell, gardening, bead work and jewellery making.
