Centre Manager

Tayla Salmon

Mount Martha Childcare Centre Manager - Pelican ChildcareI began my early childhood education and care career in 2010 and started at Pelican Childcare Mount Martha in 2014.

I have a Diploma in Children’s Services. Throughout my time in early childhood education, I have held many roles, including assistant educator, lead educator, educational leader, assistant centre manager, and now centre manager. In more recent years, I have truly found my passion in leading teams to deliver quality care and education to the children in our care and helping educators find their passions within their roles.

The learning opportunities offered in a child care and early education centre are designed to enhance children’s social skills, problem-solving, emotional wellbeing, physical health, language and cognitive skills in ways that can’t always be achieved at home. As a centre manager, I am passionate about helping children on their learning and life journey.

My focus has always been to ensure that each child is able to achieve their full potential within these crucial first five years of life. It’s important to ensure that children are supported in a nurturing environment and develop positive, trusting relationships with the educators.

The team at Pelican Mount Martha are incredibly passionate about their roles. Each of them brings their own knowledge and experiences to our team. We are really proud of our centre and what we offer to our children, families, and community.

We have a strong focus on open, respectful communication with our families. We regularly seek our families’ feedback about the day-to-day operation of the Centre and what changes they might want to see. As a centre we also really enjoy hosting special events for our families that give them the opportunity to engage in our Pelican Mount Martha community!

“Would highly recommend Pelican Mount Martha to everyone. I am a Parent as well as an Educator and the team has gone above and beyond for my little man. I had a lot of anxiety leaving my little man in care as he was a NICU baby and the lovely staff made his transition into care a breeze. The Educators are constantly changing experiences and environments to help and encourage my little man to reach his developmental milestones. I couldn’t be happier as a parent.”

  • Melissa Fleay

 

“Our daughter has been with Pelican Mount Martha for 3 years and in that time the centre has been incredibly warm, welcoming, professional and fun.
Our daughter absolutely loves all of her educators and enjoys all the fun activities they provide along with learning lots to prepare her for school.
Our son is due to start next year and we can wait to continue our journey.
We highly recommend Pelican Mount Martha.”
