Zia

I am the centre manager at Jellybeans Belmont, and I began working in early learning in 2021. Prior to joining Jellybeans Belmont in 2024, I served as a room leader, educational leader, assistant centre manager and the centre manager in another Jellybeans centre. Before joining the early learning sector, I worked as an English Teacher to second language learners for 10 years. I hold a Diploma in Early Years Education and Care, Full First Aid training, a Food Safety Supervisor certificate, and I am also a qualified English as a second language teacher.

I am deeply passionate about the early years development of children. I chose this career path to make a difference in the future and to be a positive influence and role model for children. I am fortunate to work with a fantastic team that I can guide and support to achieve our common goals of nurturing the potential and future of our society.

My previous experience in teaching was heavily influenced by the International Baccalaureate framework, an educational philosophy that continues to guide my teaching style. Combining this with the Early Years Learning Framework that guides us in our sector, and my experience as a father of two, I have learned a lot about the foundations of children’s development. I cater to each child’s individual needs, strengths, and challenges, extending my knowledge of child development to a more holistic approach.

My approach to helping children on their learning and life journey consists of two key elements: safety and education. A child must feel safe, comfortable, and respected in their environment to thrive. Education should challenge children within their capabilities, with learning experiences being child-led and inspired, while the educator acts as a facilitator and supporter of their learning.

At Jellybeans Belmont, we support the child’s holistic development by using the Early Years Learning Framework to guide us in nurturing their social-emotional, physical, linguistic, and cognitive development. Our qualified and knowledgeable educators are here to support you and your children, giving them the best start in life.

From the moment you tour our centre, through the enrollment process, and until the day your children leave for ‘big school,’ I am here to support you. Your feedback is invaluable, and I am here to listen, learn, and improve our centre and your child’s experience. Whether you have specific resources in mind for your child, suggestions for our environment, educational goals, questions about Centrelink subsidy or fees, or even if you need advice for home-related issues, I am here to support you.

We look forward to welcoming your family into our Belmont community.

Jellybeans’ Family Support team will add your child’s name to our waitlist if one of our centres is currently full in your child’s age group. We will then contact you as soon as a place becomes available.

We also do monthly check-ins to review the availability, and you will receive a text message confirming if you’re still happy to remain on the waitlist each month. If you would like to get an update at any point, you’re welcome to reach out on our Web Chat or give us a call.

Our Family Support team can also help you find more G8 early learning centres near you, with the same offerings at the Jellybeans centre you are interested in that have immediate availability.

It’s common for a child to experience separation anxiety when they first start child care. When you’re getting ready to start child care, you can help your child overcome anxieties by visiting the child care centre together for a Stay and Play session, and easing into new routines at home.

Jellybean uses Xplor Home as our family communication app. It is the best and easiest way to keep track of your child’s day. After you enrol your child with the centre, you can utilise Xplor Home to book child care days, manage your account, receive the photographs that capture your child’s learning, learn about your child’s progress, as well as keep up-to-date with upcoming centre events and important information.

If your child shows signs of an infectious illness when they arrive at the centre or becomes sick during the day, you may be notified that you need to make alternative arrangements or pick up your child from the centre, and keep them home until they are no longer infectious. While we understand that this can be inconvenient, Jellybeans is committed to maintaining a healthy environment and reducing the risk of infection for all children.

Under the Child Care Subsidy (CCS), families are allowed 42 absence days per child, per financial year. These can be taken for any reason, including public holidays and when children are sick, without the need for families to provide documentation.
