My School Child Care & Kindergarten Director

Christie Davey

Christie Davey

Director

I extend a warm welcome to My School Child Care & Kindergarten - Mt Cotton, Hello my name is Miss Christie and I am the new Director.

I have been in childcare for over 13 years. I started out as a trainee and that’s where I found my passion for children, from there I studied my diploma and once completing that I stepped into an assistant director role which was a great learning opportunity for me.

I have a daughter of my own, she has just turned 2yrs old. She decided to come a little early and spent some time in hospital which has given me a strength I never knew I had.

My personal philosophy is that I believe every child deserves the right to learn and grow at their own pace, every child is different and unique in their own way which makes each and every child special. I believe teaching children the things that they need for life and reaching those important milestones are a vital part of learning.

Learning in an open ended and supportive environment helps children to grow and become shaped into the person they will grow into. I like to follow the Reggio Emilia philosophy which values the child as central to their own learning, not simply an empty vessel waiting to be filled with knowledge. Children are able to pursue their own interests and revisit and build upon ideas at their own pace.

I take pride in connecting with every child in my care and giving them the love and support they need to grow and learn. I believe each child should be encouraged to follow who and what they want to be.

I believe I am here to guide the next generation to become someone special.
I look forward to meeting you and your children and looked forward to becoming an important part of your child’s life at My School.
