Melissa has been in the Early Years industry since 2012, starting off by doing a traineeship at her previous centre at age 19, which then lead to her becoming the Assistant Manager and Educational Leader there.
She has been Diploma qualified since 2013 and has been a part of the InspiraKids Early Learning Family since the start of 2017.
Melissa has worked in various roles across the Shepparton service during her time there, such as, Room Leader, Assistant Director, Educational Leader, Marketing Manager and now Centre Director.
In her spare time she enjoys spending time with her family and friends, going to the gym and baking yummy treats.
Her passion in the Early Years field revolves around the promotion of healthy life styles and encouraging positive food choices for all age groups, with some of her previous education being in Alternative Medicine and Nutrition.
Alongside developing meaningful relationships with all of the families who come through the front doors, she aims to promote a home-like style of care for the children and provide them with endless opportunities in which the children can be the dictator for their own personal learning journeys.
“The goal of education is not to increase the amount of knowledge but to create the possibilities for a child to invent and discover, to create people who are capable of doing new things”
– Jean Piaget
Our nursery program is a nurturing and warm experience for the babies. We take care of your child’s feeding, sleeping and developmental needs.
Many children at this age may be nervous about being away from parents. Close bonding activities and daily routines will help provide your child with a sense of stability and belonging, making Inspira Kids a home away from home.
Our Pre Kindergarten program provides opportunities for children to expand their repository of knowledge, cultivate their strengths and interests, and build rock solid academic foundations.
We ensure your child is ready for that important transition into school by incorporating a school readiness program.
