RDM Visits: Greenwood Early Education Centre, North Ryde

posted in: Home Page, Life | 0

Last week we were invited to check out the new Greenwood Early Education Centre at North Ryde. It was their open day and we think it’s fair to say that it was the most impressive open day we’ve seen so far! The obvious highlights were the PJ Masks visit, the African drummer, Bollywood dancers, incredible balloon and face paint artists, the hot dog van and the biggest supply of morning tea we’ve ever seen! We had a hard time dragging the kids away from all the fun!

Meet the Centre Manager

Hello! My name is Emma Louise Quinn. I have always had a passion for working with children as I grew up in a big Irish family so children have always played a huge part of my life and I have two children of my own. I have been working with children/young people for over 20 years but when I started working with the early-years sector a little under 8 years ago, I found this age group the most rewarding, fun and inspiring 🙂
