Meet the Room Leader

Miss Emily

Room Leader (Centre 2IC) – Happy Hippos #2

My name is Emily, but everyone calls me Miss Em or just Em!

I currently hold my Diploma of Childhood Education and Care and am studying my Bachelor of Early Childhood Teaching.

It is so hard to pick just one memory as I have so many favourites. A couple of my top favourite memories would have to be our team performances at Conventions and working in the Happy Hippos room hearing one of the babies say "Em" for the first time.

I love the fact that they offer so many opportunities for growth and development in your career, they truly believe in their staff to be the best that they can be. The centres have such a homely vibe, the environments are so beautiful to work in and you make friends for life.

From starting as a trainee, a quiet girl who didn't know much about Early Childcare, I now have 2 qualifications and am starting my ECT and have taken on the role as Educational Leader and 2IC which has given me so much fulfillment, understanding of the industry and fueled my passion for what I do.

When I'm not working I like to go to the gym, take my dog Nala for walks and swim with her in the pool. I also have an interest baking desserts, makeup and planting succulents.

I also have a wonderful boyfriend, Tim, who was my highschool sweetheart. We enjoy travelling to Melbourne sometimes even twice a year to watch the UFC live and want to try every burger in every city we visit! So far the best burger we've ever had is the Premium Beef Burger from The Meat and Wine Co in Melbourne City, you HAVE TO TRY IT! I love good food, music and travelling with friends and family. I have been to 10 countries before I've even turned 25 and hope to see several other parts of the world with the ones I love.
