Additional Centre Information
Hi, My name is Monique Niven and I have joined the family at Goodstart New Gisborne as the Centre Director, I hold my Diploma in Children’s Services alongside various other qualifications, this year I will also be finishing my bachelor in Early Childhood and Primary school teaching. This feeding into my passion to teach, support and lead others in teaching and scaffolding children’s development.
I have been in early childhood for 12 years and have a passion to advocate for children of all ages, I enjoy the partnerships formed alongside the families to build the best possible learning environment for the children, providing challenges, risk taking, natural play, conversations and of course a safe space to feel they can learn at their absolute best.
I have worked very closely in wide diverse range of services, from regional to inner city and this has given me a positive outlook on how to best support our families.
The best part of what we do is the learning about each child, what makes them tick and how can we take that to the next level, building resilience in children and having the most amazing conversations with them.
The society in which we are all living in now and what the children are exposed to, they deserve the very best we can give them. It’s up to us to provide the opportunity for this to occur and have and influence on the children future through building their resilience strength and all round wellbeing.
I look forward to the journey this position will bring and the families and people I will meet – I am always up for a chat so come and say hi anytime.
