Starfish Room



Hello families and friends!

Hi I am Emmalea. I am the room leader of the starfish room.I believe in implementing and evaluating a plan of suitable experiences and activities for the young babies in my care and also providing a safe and stimulating environment for the them to develop. I have been at Garfield childcare for the past 2 year and recently completed my certificate 3 and planning on studying my Diploma. I enjoy spending time with my family,especially with my nieces. I believe every child has a unique learning pattern and learn at their own pace. I feel educators are vital to guide young children to make the most of their early years. please feel free to come and speak to me at any time.



My name is Irene Giusti. I’m a mother of 3 children and I have been working in the childcare Industry for 7 years. I love working with the children and teaching them is my passion. I believe teaching provides an opportunity for continual learning and growth. One of my hopes as an educator is to instill a love of learning in my students as I share my own passion for learning with them. I also believe that children are active participants in their own learning. My role as an educator is to facilitate,nurture and guide them in their development,create an environment with learning activities that invite the interests of the children.


Hi my name is Seshini. I have recently joined the Garfield. I have an extensive experience working with children of all ages. I believe  early childhood education as the foundation for lifelong learning. We believe that each child is a unique individual and should be viewed, respected and treated as such. As the welfare and wellbeing of each child is paramount, I  strive to provide holistic support of the child’s exclusive requirements and interests in a nurturing, familial environment that fosters the child’s development across all developmental domains.

In my free time, I enjoy watching movies and cooking. I also loved spending time with my family.
