Tara Davidson Centre Director
Hi, my name is Tara Davidson. I am excited be a part of the Coorparoo Cavendish Road journey as the Centre Director.
I am passionate about working in partnership with families to deliver the highest possible care and education to children. I believe that building positive relationships with children, families, educators and the wider community is the key to a successful learning and teaching environment.
I have an open door policy which allows opportunities for conversations, support, inspiration and mentoring.
Throughout the completion of my Bachelor of Education, my Advanced Diploma in Community Sector Management and my 8 years’ experience in the Early Childhood sector, I have developed skills and knowledge in a variety of positions that have given me differing experience with mentoring, motivating and inspiring educators; challenging, scaffolding and following the interests of children; and supporting, listening to and openly communicating with families.
I believe that every child has the right to a positive, aesthetically pleasing, stimulating learning environment that provides opportunities to explore, discover and investigate at their own pace. I believe that every child has their own unique learning style and with patience, effective teaching and support each child can demonstrate their capabilities.
The first 5 years of a child's life is vital to their development which is why our relationships and interactions play such a major part in contributing to their lifelong learning and wellbeing. I value the opportunity to develop strong relationships with and support the children, families and educators within the Coorparoo at Cavendish Road community.
