I love working with Enhance because...

my role brings great variety, I am able to support individualised, child centric, home based education as an additional care type within the sector, to connect with likeminded educators, colleagues and professionals, to navigate the Education and Care sector at a Department level and to be a part of a village that supports the family unit to participate within the workforce and their community as a whole.

I would describe my role for Enhance as;

an advocate for exceptional home-based care, to prioritise the wellbeing, rights and safety of the child, guiding the growth and professional development of like minded educators and to grow, develop and monitor governance and compliance measures within our organisation.
