My name is Patrice Rafferty and I am the OSHC Manager at Indigo North Perth Kids Club. I moved to Australia from Scotland when I was 5 years old and have lived here in Perth ever since. I started studying my certificate 3 and 4 in Education Support straight after graduating high school in 2015. I always knew that I wanted to work with children and I was so eager to get involved. At 18 years old I started working as a qualified educator in an OSHC centre, I then became the OSHC Coordinator of that service when I turned 20 (2018) and stayed in that role until September 2021 when I started the role as an OSHC Manager here at Indigo Montessori Childcare and Kindy.
I absolutely love guiding and supporting educators at our service to provide quality care for our children in a way that allows them to learn and grow through play and exploration. I am passionate about individuality and meeting the needs of all children and encouraging them to gain confidence and self-identity. I believe children learn best by actively engaging in their environment, at our centre we achieve this by creating a variety of learning areas to support this hands-on type play.
