Gosford Cubbyhouse Long Day Care Centre – Assisting ET Australia Students Achieve Results We interviewed Maxine Daubert from Gosford Cubbyhouse on why ET Australia students are thought of so highly in the early childhood sector on the Central Coast. Tell us a little bit about the background of Gosford Cubbyhouse Long Day Care Centre. We are a Long Day care centre operating from 6.30am – 6pm Monday to Friday with our organisational structure being a community based not for profit organisation operated by a parent committee. We are located at Henry Wheeler Place Gosford backing onto the entrance of Rumbalara Reserve. Currently employing 13 staff, 10 educators, a full-time director, administration officer and a chef. Your organisation has been working with ET Australia now for almost 2 years - how did you get involved with ET Australia? Through an offer to support students with their practicum requirements. Our relationship developed further from one of our child’s parents working as a teacher at ET Australia Secondary College bringing her year 7 students into read stories for our children during book week in 2016. Why did you choose to open your doors to ET Australia students? We are community focussed and believe we can support, mentor and promote inclusive and high quality practices plus be a great advocate for the early childhood sector. We really like the way ET is an advocate for diverse learning strategies and has implemented opportunities for students to feel comfortable and confident in their learning and life path. Tell us what your experience has been with ET Australia students? Punctual, independent and prepared. Tell us a little about ET Australia’s student quality? We have found ET students to be enthusiastic and capable. Keen to learn the practical aspects of the job. Can you think of a word or phrase that best describes your relationship with ET Australia? Creating connections within the community. Why that word or phrase? We value the community and the different roles involved to make it positive and effective. Supporting people to become their best enables our community to thrive. It enables us to support people to participate and become responsible, contributing partners in our society. Has working with ET Australia changed your thinking at all about the way your company may employ staff in the future? We look at all options when employing staff, finding employee’s that share a passion and strive to be their best is an asset not just to us but the community as a whole. Just knowing there are diverse options like ET Australia available is exciting. 22 What specifically is your favourite part of working with ET Australia and why? Definitely the partnership we have developed, ET Australia’s early childhood trainer Toni and her professionalism, knowledge and general niceness! Why would you recommend working with ET Australia to someone else? Community focussed, thinking outside of the box and fast, honest responses. If someone called you and said “Why should I use my business to allow ET Australia students to complete work placement requirements?” what would you tell them? Do it! Give them a chance, they are organised, professional, supportive and encouraging their students to be the best they can be. Gosford Cubbyhouse provides a terrific experience to children in the Gosford area
