Bec has been with Columba Cottage for several years after moving from Brisbane for a seachange. Many of the children in the Platypus Room will have had Bec as an educator since they started at the Cottage and would know that her favourite book is The Very Cranky Bear.
When asked what she enjoys most about the age group she has, Bec replied “Seeing their development grow in the social/emotional area, seeing their friendships grow and observing how those friendships work in the games they play together.”
“Each day I certainly have a lot of laughs as the children’s personalities come out more and more! They are not shy to tell you how it is!”
As a mother herself, Bec loves to spend time with her family, head out for coffee with friends or go to the gym. Bec is a personal trainer in her spare time as her health and fitness is her other passion.
Bec believes that integrated centres (combining education and care) are more effective in promoting positive child outcomes. She will often have a smile on her face because it brings a positive attitude towards the children. “It is especially important to have a positive attitude to make sure the children have fun and enjoy their day.”
With a great team of educators for 2020, Bec is planning another awesome year.
