The Owners – Sam and Angela’s Story
In 2003, sisters Sam and Angela opened Mindarie Keys Early Learning Centre (changing the name to Mindarie Keys Early Learning School in 2016). They have taken pride in providing high quality education and care to children and families in the community. Sam and Angela were thrilled to be recognised for their commitment to quality education and care and awarded rated as ‘Exceeding National Quality Standards’ by the Australian Children’s Education and Care Quality Authority.
Both Sam and Angela have a genuine love for children and their development. Their vision was to open a centre which focussed on education in a secure, loving home-away-from home environment. Using various child care theorists and approaches to provide the best possible care for your child.
Angela’s background qualification is teaching. She has a Master’s Degree in Education, a Degree in Social Science (Children and Family Studies) and was also a State Registered Nurse. She has three grown up children.
Sam has a Diploma in Children’s Services (Early Childhood Education and Care), a background in business and is the mother of two children. When looking for care for Sam’s two children the sisters realised that other centres did not meet their expectations. They decided to open a centre that could provide high quality learning in a loving environment. Since then, they have become part of the community, well respected and highly recommended by past and present families.
Mindarie Keys are very selective on choosing fantastic Educators who can create a secure and nurturing environment, whilst striving to ensure each child reaches ‘their’ full potential. The team are continuously improving their skills and working to best practise. They collaborate and share the same ethos and philosophy. Educators fulfil many roles in your child’s play. They support learning by scaffolding play through intentional teaching, modelling or planning the curriculum and learning environments. Most of all, they want your child to have fun!
We really look forward to welcoming you into the Mindarie Keys Family
