Centre Manager Profile

Nicole James

My name is Nicole James and I am the Centre Manager at Pelican Childcare Heatherton. I extend a warm welcome for you and your family to come and visit our service, meet our team and learn about our programs and facilities that we have to offer.

Through years of experience I have gained extensive knowledge and understanding of the importance of play, individuality and positive interactions that occur through building partnerships with all families who walk through our door and using the Early Years Learning Framework and National Quality Standards as guidance. 

I have spent my time within the industry gaining insight into the developmental milestones, program and planning, interactions with children and collaboration with all stakeholders. Using my positions as an Assistant Educator, Lead Educator, Educational Leader and Assistant Centre Manager to excel and become more involved within the fundamental teaching and learning that services have to offer.

I believe in providing a sense of security and wellbeing within the service, empowering children to grow confidence and become active participants in their own learning. Through providing high quality care, we assist children to explore their own curiosities, senses and investigate their surroundings.

I look forward to building relationships with you and your family, introducing you to our passionate team and building a sense of belonging.

Reviews and Testimonials

See what some of our parents say about our centre:

“I have had my one year old daughter at Pelican for 6 weeks now and from the moment we arrived at the center I was impressed. The center manager and staff are very warm and welcoming and they already feel like family. They genuinely care for the children and are so amazing with each and every one of them. Every morning my baby girl is happy to see her new friends and explore her world with new toys we don’t have at home! It has been amazing to see particularly her social development progress so quickly. It makes it easier to go to work when I know I can trust she is being cared for to such a high standard and I highly recommend this center.”

“Pelican Childcare Heatherton has been wonderful for my family. The staff and management are so friendly and inviting, both my boys love going and are looked after so well. I would recommend this childcare to all my friends, as it’s such a wonderful place for my kids to grow and develop. They have gained some great friendships and the educators are understanding and kind for both my boy’s needs. We have had such a smooth transition into the rooms and I feel confident and comfortable leaving my boys in their care. Thank you so much for all the services, support and care for my family.”
