Tell us something about yourself:
Hi my name is Sukriye, l have been working in child care for 6 years. I was born in Sydney, Australia, but my background is Turkish. I love singing in Turkish to the children, so they can experience another language. I get told that I’m a social butterfly, and l like to meet new people. l like to travel and explore new cultures. I’m excited to continue my journey in child care.
What inspired you to choose a career in child care?
l chose this career path because l consider myself a very enthusiastic, patient and responsible person who likes teaching and working with children. They have so much potential and l enjoy being able to guide their learning while they play.
Working with children is fun, and l learn from working with them everyday! l admire their endless energy, honesty, creativity, flexibility and resilience. The children motivate me to be a better person. Helping children (and their families) is the most rewarding job l can think of.
