Peta Bertolotti Centre Director
Hello and thank you for your interest in joining the Coral Drive community.
As an Early Learning Educator and the Director of Goodstart Hampton Park Coral Drive, I am committed to providing a loving, safe, and educationally-rich environment for the children within my centre. My aim is to create a community for the families within our centre and to create the “village” that each family needs to raise a child. I prioritise establishing secure, stable and predictable relationships for the families and children in my centre.
I aim to ensure that all children are given the same opportunities to access quality Early Learning, through Equity. I work to ensure that any children who need extra help to achieve their learning goals are given every opportunity to reach them, and partner with their families to access any supports required.
Our students are capable learners, with the right to be treated with respect, compassion and understanding, always. I recognise their need to develop a sense of security and belonging before we can educate them. I believe in teaching them about love, laughter, fun and empathy, through interacting during their play, as it is the most important way to teach them.
I am proud to include our Indigenous culture into my work and recognise the importance of embedding this into our lives.
I believe I am an advocate for my students, families, educators, and the sector as a whole.
I look forward to meeting you and your family soon. Please come in and meet my fabulous team, take a tour, and see how we can work together to give your child the best possible start in their learning journey.
