From the CEEC Team, Meet Vida

Position

CEEC Certificate 3 Educator

ECE Background

My name is Vida, and I joined the CEEC team in July 2021. Working in a children’s community language school inspired me to pursue a career in early education, and I completed my ‘Certificate III in Early Childhood Education and Care’ in early 2021. I believe every child is unique and I am passionate about providing rich learning opportunities in a safe and caring environment to ensure the best possible start in life. I am a creative person and will implement plans that enhance each individual child’s learning, interests and cover all areas of their development.

In my spare time, I love watercolour drawing and making sculptures with clay. I also like being creative in my cooking and trying out recipes from different cultures.

From the NEEC Team: Meet Anu

Position

NEEC Diploma Head of Community 

ECE Background

My name is Anu and I have been working with SEEC since 2013, primarily at Westmead Early Education Centre with the 0-3 year old children. I am currently the Early Learning Head of Community Leader at Northmead Early Education Centre and have also acted in the roles of Chief Fire Warden and Sustainability officer over the years.  

Actively embedding the cultural heritage of children is at the base of my teaching practices. I strongly believe that children should have a strong sense of comfort in their identity. This will further inform their learning and exploration and encourage them to be open to diversity and the multicultural community in which we live.  

My pedagogical practices are reflected in the organisation of learning spaces for the children, created to invite exploration, inquisitiveness, problem-solvin, creativity and working with others in a team. I finally have been given the opportunity to work with the talented and dedicated team of NEEC and I am very excited to share my knowledge and learn at the same time.

I am a commerce graduate from India and have completed my Certificate 3 In Early Childhood Education and Care from TAFE before working in family daycare in Australia.

I completed a Diploma in Early Childhood Education and Care in 2021 through TAFE to enhance my knowledge and impart quality care to children.

I always knew this was the career path I wanted to pursue as I love to help children grow and develop both physically and cognitively. Working with children every day is always fun and different. I thank WEEC for all the support and guidance for the past 4 years and for helping me to grow as a professional educator.
