Meet Our Centre Manager

Nathan Tully

Centre Manager

Years in childcare: 5 years

Qualifications: Diploma of Early Childhood and Care

What makes you passionate about working in childcare? I love being able to watch children develop from a very early age and become confident and happy learners as they graduate from Preschool and transition to Primary School! I also really enjoy being able to work collaboratively with both parents and other educators to create an environment for the holistic development of all children, that children enjoy being at and have fun whilst learning.

What is the funniest or most memorable moment you can share from working in childcare? I love to hear stories told by children, true or false – they can definitely become the highlight of my day! Everyday brings a new moment, which makes this job even more memorable.

Why do you believe your centre is an excellent choice for parents seeking the best childcare? Henley Long Day Care is a warm, caring centre that has been in the community for over 22 years. We have a wonderful, large, natural outdoor area that is suitable for all ages and encourages risky play in a safe environment. We have experienced educators are passionate about what they do and enjoy coming to work, helping each and every child to reach their full potential.
