Testimonials from Educators

Adventure Patch has supported me to achieve my career goals. In three years I have gained a qualification and worked through the ranks to co-assistant director of OSHC. The emotional rewards gained from working with children are astronomical.
I started working at Adventure Patch casually on my gap year. The split shifts that OSHC offered really suited my lifestyle. I could focus on my hobbies during the day then have fun with children in the afternoons. A year on Adventure Patch have offered me opportunities to upskill and I now co-ordinate an OSHC service.
I have found Adventure Patch to be a welcoming community that has encouraged and guided me to grow into my role as an Educator. I am very grateful to be part of such an awesome team and to be able to play a part in nurturing and supporting children as they grow. Overall, the feeling of family that they foster makes for an incredibly wholesome and rewarding experience.
