Meet our Centre Director

Amanda Wassman

Director, St Mary MacKillop Early Learning Centre MUNDINGBURRA

Hi, my name is Mandy, I have recently taken on the position as Director of St Mary MacKillop Early Learning Centre, Mundingburra in January 2017.

I currently hold an Advanced Diploma of Children's Services. I first started at our centre in October 2005 in a casual capacity, then accepted a Lead Educator Position of the Senior Toddler room in 2006. After 10 years in that position, I have now decided to embark on this new journey as Director.

I believe that every child is a unique individual and each are gifted with varying abilities.  Play is the foundation for children’s learning and through interactions within their environment and guidance by adults, children will learn new skills whilst enhancing older ones.  Like Freud, it is my belief that when a child feels successful it encourages them to try new things as they grow in confidence.  I endeavour to provide a welcoming environment where children and families from different cultural backgrounds feel welcomed and accepted.  I believe that family is the most important and influential part of a child’s life.  For this reason families are encouraged to participate in the child’s room and centre activities.

I look forward to welcoming you to our centre.
