Child care worker named finalist
An Empire Bay child care worker has been named a finalist in a national childcare provider's awards.
Ms Hendry was nominated by her peers and clients for her contribution to the wellbeing and healthy development of the children in the Bluebird Centre at Empire Bay.
Ms Hendry said she was excited yet humbled to be nominated in the national awards program.
"It's a privilege to be able to work with children each day.
"They teach me so much.
"I'm really honoured to have been recognised by my families," she said.
Manager Ms Kylie Prays said the recognition was testament to Ms Hendry's dedication.
"The Standout Educator Awards highlight the special contribution educators like Mel make to the lives of the children in their care," she said.
"To be selected is not only reward for her dedication to providing quality early childhood education and care, it also emphasises the special bond that she has with the children entrusted in her care," she added.
Now in its second year, the Standout Educators Award program run by G8 Education provided recognition for the important role early childhood educators play, she said.
The company employs around 10,000 childcare workers nationwide.
