Miranda Tait Centre Director
Hello, my name is Miranda Tait and I am the Centre Director at Goodstart Forest Gardens.
I hold a Diploma of Children’s Services and have been in the early childhood industry for over 12 years. I have worked across a number of positions within the sector before starting my role as Centre Director at Goodstart Forest Gardens in 2016.
I am passionate about the importance of children having access to quality early learning – the first five years last a lifetime so we have an opportunity to make a real difference to children’s outcomes. I am also deeply committed to developing positive and reciprocal relationships with children and their families. I believe all children should have the best possible start in life and I am lucky enough to lead a team of talented and passionate educators who support and deliver this belief.
Please do not hesitate to contact me or come in for a centre tour to view our amazing learning and play spaces and learn about the programs we offer here at Goodstart Forest Gardens.
