Additional Centre Information
Hi, my name is Rachel Perkins and I am the Centre Director of Goodstart Early Learning Whyalla.
Before turning 40, I believed and knew that I needed a change from my retail career of almost 24 years. In 2016, I began to study my Diploma of Early Childhood Education and Care, whilst working fulltime and running a household of 5.
During my first placement block at Goodstart in October 2016, I decided this is where I wanted to be, I instantly felt at home. Fast forward almost 3 years’ and I am now embracing my most rewarding yet challenging career ever.
As a Centre we are focussing on our Key Educator Relationships. These relationships provide a safe and secure nurturing environment, enabling the children to learn and explore through play. It also provides the opportunity for families to have that special person that they trust and know they can turn too, when needed.
As a Centre Director, I believe in mentoring and leading my team, to help them achieve their own goals and further develop their own skills. I look forward to working alongside my Educators by creating learning rich environments that engages with families, children and the wider community.
Working in the retail industry for over 20 years has helped me to become the person that I am today. I work with honesty, integrity and a determination to be the best that I can be. I would love to have the opportunity to connect with you and your family building safe, strong reciprocal relationships as we grow together.
