Jodie Elliott

My name is Jodie Elliott, and I am the Centre Manager at Nurture One Children’s Centre Kilmore. I have been working in early childhood education since 2000. I have been working at Nurture One Kilmore since 2018. I currently hold an advanced diploma in community sector management. During my time in early education, I have gained experience working with children across all ages from birth to 5 years before commencing as an assistant centre manager and centre manager.

I began working as an educator at 18 years old. I had always enjoyed playing with young children so chose Early Education as my career path. What I did not recognise at the time was, that love was a passion for advocating for your children, giving them opportunities to learn, grow, question, and explore in safe and inclusive environments.

One of my key takeaways from my time in the industry is that children learn the best when they feel safe, secure, and supported. Children can thrive when they are recognised as capable, and they are valued and respected. When we build strong relationships with children and their families this gives us a strong foundation to begin their learning journey. All children have inbuilt curiosity and potential which I believe is fostered through play based learning and respectful and trusted relationships with both children and their families.

My teaching style involves prioritising forming trusting relationships with children and their families, show respect in our interactions and genuinely enjoy engaging with children and learning alongside them.

The benefits associated with having your child enrolled in our early childhood education and care setting is giving them the opportunity to engage with early childhood professionals who are dedicated to guiding them in their learning and development through play-based curriculum that is engaging and fun.

At the centre we have an incredibly long standing, and dedicated team of Early Childhood teachers and educators who show passion and enthusiasm for teaching your children. Our team works very hard to ensure quality education and care is provided through our program which is based on the children’s interests and family input. We value the importance of strong relationships with our families and communities and work alongside each other to provide the best outcomes for the children in our care.

We build strong relationships with our families by earning their trust and respect through open and honest communication. We understand that starting at a new centre can be overwhelming. From the first inquiry, we make sure that we address all your questions. We walk families through all the forms and administration that needs to be done. This includes explaining the childcare subsidy and activity tests, government caps, centre schedules, our menu and more. I believe that when you walk into our well-resourced centre, meet the educators, and see our beautiful natural outdoor spaces you will know that this place is the place for your child to grow and learn.

You’ll be able to see all the rooms and playgrounds, ask the team members any questions you have in mind, and get all the information you need to make the best decision for your child. 

Nurture One’s Family Support team will add your child’s name to our waitlist if one of our centres is currently full in your child’s age group. We will then contact you as soon as a place becomes available.

We also do monthly check-ins to review the availability, and you will receive a text message confirming if you’re still happy to remain on the waitlist each month. If you would like to get an update at any point, you’re welcome to reach out on our Web Chat or give us a call.

Our Family Support team can also help you find more G8 early learning centres near you, with the same offerings at the Nurture One centre you are interested in that have immediate availability.

It’s common for a child to experience separation anxiety when they first start child care. When you’re getting ready to start child care, you can help your child overcome anxieties by visiting the child care centre together for a Stay and Play session, and easing into new routines at home.

Nurture One uses Xplor Home as our family communication app. It is the best and easiest way to keep track of your child’s day. After you enrol your child with the centre, you can utilise Xplor Home to book child care days, manage your account, receive the photographs that capture your child’s learning, learn about your child’s progress, as well as keep up-to-date with upcoming centre events and important information.

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, Nurture One is committed to maintaining a healthy environment and reducing the risk of infection for all children.

Under the Child Care Subsidy (CCS), families are allowed 42 absence days per child, per financial year. These can be taken for any reason, including public holidays and when children are sick, without the need for families to provide documentation.
