Erjok Apech Erjok (Gaigai) – Nyadier

My name is Nyadier, I am from Sudan. I started working in childcare in 1994 in Kakuma refugee camp. Our camp was huge so we had over 1000 children in our centre.
There were also three other centres in the camp with around the same number of children. We had a shortage of classrooms, so some children were taught outside under the trees.
Children were enrolled from the ages of 2 ½ to 5 years old.
In 1995 all the teachers at the camp were offered child care training, by this time I was pregnant with my twins. We did the training course for two years. I arrived in Australia in February 2003. In October 2003, I moved to Toowoomba with my family. In 2004, I attended TAFE to learn English.
I was lucky enough to meet a Lifeline worker who oversaw migrant and refugee children in Toowoomba. I talked to her and told her I was a child care worker and showed her my certificate. I told her my mother tongue was very important in childcare. She then employed me as a multicultural support worker for three days a week and I continued attending TAFE for two days a week.

We enrolled children in child cares in Toowoomba and I helped them settle in. Most of the children were enrolled in ABC centres. In 2007 Lifeline offered me a traineeship and I completed my certificate 3 in childcare in October 2007. ABC then employed as a casual assistant then a permanent position.

I have been in childcare for 16 years and I still love my job. I love working with children because of the way they make you laugh. I love learning new things.

Little Grinner’s Family Day Care – Cherry

I’m am originally from the Philippines and migrated with my family back in the 1990s. I have always been surrounded by big families and this is where my passion for working with children grew.
Now that I have my own family, it’s time for me to grow with my little one. Family day care is one of the best ways I can do this and discover all the new experiences with the children.
I have over 15 years of experience in the early childhood settings from babies to school age.
I have a Diploma of Community Services (Children’s Services), current First Aid, CPR, Blue card, Child Protection, Food Safety and  Montessori training.
I look forward to meeting you and your family.

Ooh Child Care – Jazzmin

Whilst I come from a background in business, I have always wanted to work with children since I completed my very first work experience in high school as a teacher. I love the idea of opening young minds to new things and relish watching as the children see and experience things for the very first time. Supporting the children to achieve their goals and aspirations is very rewarding for not only them but also for me. I treasure the children in my care and look after them, provide guidance and offer reassurance just as I do and would want for my own child.
