Simone Gillett – Early Childhood
With over 25 years of industry experience, it’s safe to say Simone knows early childhood education inside and out.
Simone brings experience from many roles in the field including working as a nanny, running her own family day care and working in occasional care. She has extensive experience within long daycare settings too, including as an Educational Leader and Centre Director.
At Selmar Simone goes above and beyond to train our future educators, working with them and their different learning styles.
“It is amazing to see each student’s face light up with confidence and pride when they achieve their goals. I love to teach my students more than what they answer in a task book, and expand their thinking, knowledge and reflect on their every day practices.”
For Simone, sharing her passion, knowledge and experience in early childhood education is what she really loves, combined with Selmar’s approach to training.
“I love that Selmar marks each student’s task book monthly and gives students feedback straight away. Each Student at Selmar is provided with support and tailored learning as required”.
Preparing students to become educators to guide our future generations is a responsibility Simone takes seriously as she believes that education is the foundation for the future.
