Here at Papilio Early Learning Ingleburn we are a team of 11 full time educators. Each individual educator brings with them a distinct set of skills and interests which they implement into different aspects of the learning curriculum and into the centre. Many of our educators have worked at the centre for an extended period of time, including our Centre Manager Samantha Cummins who has worked at the centre since it opened in 2011. We come from a range of cultural backgrounds and enjoy challenging and supporting all children in our centre to achieve all learning outcomes regardless of race, ethnicity and age.

What makes me passionate about Early Childhood Education?
Early Childhood Education is my passion as I love to foster children’s development and growth. I believe that children learn in many different ways and as educators we are able to help them achieve goals that are set out for them by us as educators, their families and most importantly themselves. As an educator I love guiding educators in ensuring they are thinking outside the box to create exciting and new play spaces for children. It is inspiring to see educators who are passionate about early years education and watch how their rooms transform into amazing spaces for children to learn and grow.
Why do you believe your centre is an excellent choice for parents seeking the best childcare?
At Papilio Early learning Ingleburn we offer exceptional care for children. The centre itself has a homely feeling as you walk through, you are greeted by our qualified educators who are always happy and having fun. We believe that all children belong in our environment and show this by creating exciting and inclusive experiences for all children to foster their growth and development in the early years. Our flexible programs and routines ensure that all children’s needs are met along with providing a diverse nutritional menu. As O.Fred Donalson said “Children learn as they play. Most importantly, in play children learn how to learn”.
