Staff at Helensvale Little Gems Child Care

Dana – Centre Director – 21 Years in Child Care – Advanced Diploma

My name is Dana and I am the Director at Helensvale Little Gems. I have thoroughly enjoyed 21 years in Early Childhood Education, beginning as a casual assistant and working my way through to becoming a Centre Director. I have attained my qualifications all the way to Advanced Diploma, as well as completing a Cert IV in Training and Assessment in 2015. Over my years, I have had wonderful opportunities of caring for many children, watching them from very young babies, all the way to leaving kindy to go off to ‘big school’. It’s an incredible experience to provide a loving and nurturing environment for children, where they can feel safe and supported and where you can build an amazing bond with them and their families. I have been blessed with 2 children myself, and was fortunate to be able to take them with me to kindy, so I could still have the opportunity of watching them grow. I am so proud to be a part of the Little Gems family and to have the opportunity to be able to support and care for your children, and to mentor a team of amazing educators as well. I pride myself on being approachable, providing an open door policy with families, so please don’t hesitate to pop by, have a chat and share whenever you need.
