Donna Brine : Director, Collinswood

Donna Brine

Director, Collinswood

My name is Donna Brine and I have worked in the childcare industry for over 20 years.

I have 3 children of my own and it was becoming a mother that inspired me to begin my own Family Day Care business from my home. After 17 years of this wonderful experience and when my children had grown, I embarked on a new phase of my career which began at Precious Cargo in Westbourne Park.

Precious Cargo encouraged and assisted me in gaining my formal childcare qualifications and within 12 months, I went from my role as Childcare Assistant to Team Leader. I spent 2 years as Team Leader in the Pre-Kindy room at Westbourne Park until I was offered the opportunity of a lifetime – to become Centre Director at Precious Cargo Lockleys.

So here I am! On the next exciting step in my childcare journey.

Educating children from a young age has always been important to me as a mother and as an educator. Joining Precious Cargo and working with the Montessori philosophies has broadened my understanding of early childhood education. It is an amazing experience standing in a classroom watching children scrape their own bowls, wash their faces, put on their sunscreen - the list is endless. What independence, at such a young age! I wish I had known all this information when my children were younger.

I look forward to meeting you in the near future and watching your children grow into confident and independent individuals.
