About Us

PFC Philosophy

Parap family centre provide an environment that is safe, friendly and welcoming to all members of the community. We believe we create an environment where meaningful relationships are developed, and a strong sense of community is maintained.

We believe the children who come through Parap Family Centre develop secure relationships with the educators which supports them through their learning journey as they develop lifelong skills and qualities.

We view the children as active participants and decision makers, we believe they bring their own diverse knowledge and skills to their learning.

We aim to develop environments that are aesthetically pleasing and are rich and provide opportunities for learning and exploring. Our educators encourage the children to respect the environment through our sustainability practices.

Our educators are highly valued and respected for their experience and knowledge in the Early Childhood Care and Education field.

I relocated from Brazil to Australia in 2010 and completed my Diploma of Early Childhood Education in 2017. Since then I have been working in the Child Care Industry and have had the pleasure of working in Canberra, Sydney and now in Darwin. I love to help children to develop their skills, discovering talents and exploring their own world.

I am originally from Ireland and that is where I studied my diploma. After my studies I started working in various daycare centres and also a Nanny to a beautiful family. I moved to Darwin in 2015 and started working for PFC in 2016.
I have loved my time here watching all the children grow from babies to then go on to preschool. It has been an amazing experience and I love building strong relationships with each child and their families.
every day.

What Our Families are Saying

It is a learning haven which allows for my daughter to grow, explore and learn with other children the same age. We are happy to be part of the PFC family and are thankful for all the support and enabling my child to flourish.

PFC means family. The staff have welcomed my child into their care like one of their own. Nothing is too much trouble, very accommodating.

PFC is a second home for my son and I appreciate all that the educators do.
