Meet the Staff

 ll MPC teaching staff hold specialist early childhood qualifications. MPC benefits greatly from the staff's depth of experience and professional expertise in early childhood education. They are committed and dedicated to the children and families who are part of our centre each year and strive to enact the philosophy in their daily practice. Ongoing professional development, learning and reflection are promoted and valued.

Additional needs assistants are employed from time to time to support children as required.

Newer staff members are learning from old hands, that this is a place for staff members to look for possibilities and opportunities rather than constraints.
