Educators

The educators at Lindfield Activity Centre work hard to create a safe and caring child-friendly environment for all the children who visit us each day. All educators have undergone a Working with Children Check before commencing work at the Centre, there is always a Certified Supervisor on duty, and children's health needs are addressed by ensuring there are always Educators on duty with training in Asthma & Anaphylaxis emergency response, Apply First Aid & child protection training. 

Educators at our centre recognise that after school care is a unique environment for children to engage in play, that fosters their strengths, interest and intelligence. Educators value the collaboration of children in our program, and engage in both spontaneous and intentional teaching as a reaction to the observed interests of children at our service.
