I believe in engaging in ongoing learning and reflective practices in order to build on my own and my team’s professional knowledge. It is fundamental to empower my fellow team members to be strong advocates for play-based learning. Children learn best through play as it provides a comfortable and familiar environment where they can explore, discover, hypothesise and test out ideas, create, imagine, think critically and improvise. My job is not only to be a coach and mentor to others but also to be able to create a safe environment where everybody feels confident to collaborate, share and work together as a team.

Miss Jo

Lead Educator
Bowen Hills Early Learning

My name is Jo Osborn. I am a diploma qualified educator who has been working in the childcare industry for 9 years.

I believe that positive guidance provides positive outcomes and it’s very important to work closely with families and have an understanding and respect for different child rearing practices. Self-help skills and independence is highly encouraged by me as an educator.

I believe in consistency and I strive to make a consistent and familiar environment where children learn to obtain a genuine respect for themselves and others. This helps to create a warm, safe, secure, welcoming environment: a place for children to feel they belong.

I believe as an educator it is important to develop strong bonds with the children and their families. It is my duty of care to ensure each child’s needs are being met while making each experience meaningful to help the children feel safe and supported while allowing children to explore their interests and providing a fun inclusive environment for all to enjoy.

Miss Kelly

Lead Educator
Bowen Hills Early Learning

Hi I’m Kelly. Originally from Ireland my family and I have moved to Australia to enjoy the lifestyle and of course the great weather.

After completing my Level 5 and Level 6 studies in Early Childhood Care and Education I worked for a long day care centre in Ireland called Busy Kids and then took time off to have my young daughter. I am so passionate about working in early childhood education. I find it very rewarding watching children reach new milestones and broadening their abilities. I believe my role as an educator is to create friendly, loving and welcoming learning environments which in turn helps children to learn and grow though play based learning. I do this working in partnership with each child’s family and I am thrilled to be working at Bowen Hills Early Learning and becoming a part of the centre family.

I look forward to working with everyone to support each child’s growth and learning and providing a fun and safe learning environment.
