Meet our Centre Director
As the director for SunRise Kids Ipswich, Sandy is responsible for the day to day management of the Centre, which includes ensuring a high level of education and care is delivered to the children and building strong partnerships with families.
Sandy has been dedicated to the field of Early Education for nearly 30 years, completing her Diploma in Care and Education in 1997 and Advanced Diploma in Children’s Services in 2006. Sandy has spent decades studying, learning and implementing best practice into her service.
Sandy is inspired by the environment provided to and created for children, and believes her service is a reflection of her love for serving our families and children. Sandy loves to see our children learn and participate in a natural environment. Sandy loves providing choice for children, and allowing children the opportunity to engage in their learning environment, as that practice develops critical skills in early maths and literacy. Sandy loves seeing curiosity and creativity in the play of children in her centre and loves sharing that learning journey with our families.
Sandy was born in country NSW and has lived near Ipswich for over 30 years. She likes to spend time with family, gardening, renovating her home and caring for her 4 dogs. In her spare time Sandy likes to read and get creative making wooden toys.
