Julie Jenkins : Director, Myrtle Bank

Julie Jenkins

Director, Myrtle Bank

After enjoying my son’s first years of life, I was inspired to pursue a career in early childhood and now have 20 years’ experience in the childcare industry. During that time I have coordinated out of school hour’s care, and worked in the nursery, pre-kindy and kindy age groups, starting as an assistant and building my way up to a qualified team leader. I then became an Assistant Director and completed my Advanced Diploma in Children’s Services, moving on to become the Director of two centres.

I fell in love with the Montessori philosophy 8 years ago and joined the Precious Cargo family in March 2015. I have recently had the wonderful opportunity to complete the Montessori Assistants Certificate and gain more knowledge in this area. I have a genuine respect for all children, and being responsible for their education gives me a deep satisfaction and makes my job meaningful.

As Director, I enjoy inspiring and guiding educators to create a rich learning environment that nurtures children to become self-confident and independent individuals. The Montessori classroom has a sense of calm and wonder, and is designed for children to practise the skills of everyday life but also helps them to develop concentration and coordination. At Precious Cargo Myrtle Bank we recognise that families are the first educators in a child’s life and we work in partnership with our families to foster an all-encompassing care and education for the child.

I look forward to meeting you in the near future to discuss how we can watch your child grow and develop to reach their full potential.
