Meet our Staff and learn more about what makes Little Teds

‘a home away from home’

Little Ted’s has a wonderful team of experienced, qualified and friendly educators. Our Centre Director Julie Price leads our team and has a deep passion for early childhood education.

Julie holds a Bachelor of Education (Early Childhood) and a Diploma of Child Care and Education.  Julie has over 30 years’ experience working in the early childhood sector as a teacher and a childcare director.

Our educators have a holistic approach to the wellbeing of your child, within a happy, safe and engaging environment that fosters the development of your child’s strengths and interests.

We respect the integral role of educators in the life of children and the consistency of these relationships and therefore retention of staff is a top priority.  We genuinely care for our team members and actively support their on­going training and development through the provision of quality training, development and learning opportunities.

It is of fundamental importance to the provision of high quality early education to foster a workplace where our educators are happy and supported, enabling them to flourish and to be the best they can be.

Information about our educators is displayed in the foyer which includes their name, qualification and group/s of children they work with.

When your child commences at Little Ted’s your family will be introduced to our entire team who will be happy to assist you anytime.
