Meet our Centre Manager

I’m Alyce Mardell and have worked in a variety of roles within the early childhood sector for the best part of ten years. I joined Mulgrave in the pre-opening stages which allowed me to carefully select a team of educators as well as the resources you see throughout the centre.

I believe children’s learning thrives when the environment has a safe, secure and warm atmosphere and children are treated with dignity and respect at all times. When you feel a sense of belonging it allows children to find the confidence to explore, investigate and hypothesise with their peers and educators.

Children, much like adults, learn very differently from one another and you cannot put children’s learning in a perfect box. There are children that learn through technology, systematically, creatively, physical movement, senses, role playing and alone/group or parallel interactions. It is about knowing each child individually and finding ways to accommodate their specific learning style to support their interests and developmental needs.

The most rewarding part of being an early childhood professional is watching children learn, develop and grow, as well as building strong relationships with the children and their families. Another highlight for me is the proud moment we have when children “graduate” from the Kinder program and leave to go to school.

My leadership approach is inspired by supporting, challenging and encouraging every team member to reach their full potential. I do this by finding strengths in each educator which in turn helps to support the team overall. As a leader, I feel it is important to ensure you are always empowering your team; this creates a cycle of continuous improvement, professional development, challenge of thinking and, most importantly, building strong future leaders in the sector.

I am currently studying my Bachelor of Early Childhood birth to five so I can be found doing a lot of studying in my free time but can also be found catching up with friends, shopping and hunting for the next best coffee shop!
