GOODSTART Redland Bay have recognised 10 educators for working at the centre for 15, 10 or five years.

Centre director Jodie Zysvelt, who received a 10-year service pin, said it was a great privilege to celebrate the service of her dedicated team.

“I’m incredibly proud of our entire team, and particularly those who have just received either their five years, 10 years or 15 years’ service pin,” she said.

“The quality of stability of educators and teachers working in the early childhood sector is recognised as the single most important influence on children’s development, learning and wellbeing.”

Ms Zysvelt said it was a wonderful achievement to celebrate.

“Every day we come to work to make a positive impact to the lives of the children in our care, to instil in all children a love for learning, and to support their families in any way we can.

“Working in early education can be emotionally and physically demanding work at times, but it is such a rewarding and satisfying profession to help children to reach their potential.
