Introducing Our Manager

Samantha Dinsdale

  • Advanced Diploma of Community Sector Management
  • Diploma in Early Childhood Education and Care
  • First Aid and CPR
  • Emergency Asthma and Anaphylaxis

Samantha has been working in Early Childhood Education and care for over 8 years. During this time she has had the opportunity to work alongside children of all ages and has grown as an Educator and Centre Director.

Sam loves observing and participating when children learn and discover new things,” it really brightens your day when you see a child achieve a new skill for the first time.” During the time Sam has worked in the industry, she has witnessed many children grow and develop from babies to starting Primary School. She finds it very comforting to know that she along with her fellow educators have made such a positive impact on children’s lives.

Sam is very passionate about children’s learning and the different ways that children learn and develop. She likes to create an environment where children are able to explore and develop at their own pace and believes in allowing  children to be independent thinkers which helps prepare them for life. She also feels that it is very important to celebrate the big (and little) achievements so that children understand that they are appreciated and that they belong within many environments.

Sam encourages her team of educators to share their  knowledge, cultures, interests and skills as this helps educate each other and the children as well as providing the opportunity for professional development to further their knowledge.  . Sam is always looking for ways that she can improve  the service and loves to hear feedback from the children, staff and families. Sam believes that working collaboratively with other like-minded services enables her to grow and develop new ideas and skills that benefit  the children and families.

Away from the Centre, Sam enjoys camping, dirt bike riding, baking, taking her puppy to the beach and spending time with my family and friends.
