Kaela

My early learning journey started in 2012. I joined Buggles Beldon in 2023. I hold a Diploma in Early Childhood Education. I have worked in all age rooms. I particularly love working in management as I am able to build relationships with all families.

I love this job because it is so rewarding to be able to witness the milestones the children are reaching, knowing that you played a part in it. I love slowing down with the children and enjoying the little moments with them as they teach us so much. In an early learning environment, children can develop their social skills which is incredibly important to their school life and beyond. It is amazing to watch the children on their own individual learning journeys and see how far they grow in our care.

The majority of the team here at Buggles has been here for a long time. They all bring lots of experience and expertise with them. We are a close team and support each other. We are passionate about the outdoors and sustainability, which is reflected through our program with our friendly chickens and worm farm.

We love being a part of our Buggles Community. We hope that you can join us soon.

If your child shows signs of an infectious illness when they arrive at the centre or becomes sick during the day, you may be notified that you need to make alternative arrangements or pick up your child from the centre, and keep them home until they are no longer infectious. While we understand that this can be inconvenient, Buggles is committed to maintaining a healthy environment and reducing the risk of infection for all children.
