Stella has been an amazing support to my centre- Little and Loud Child Care Centre. Stella brings the knowledge and advice needed to help with supporting my educators in the Assessment & Rating Process, which allowed the educators to gain a better understanding of the National Quality Standards.
Stella is very professional in her work and knows the sector well.
Little and Loud Childcare Centre
I have worked with Stella in numerous professional roles. I have found Stella to be an amazing support to myself and my team. Her knowledge, encouragement and advice is priceless. Stella has assisted the service with a visit where she observed, sighted and documented the daily happening of the centre against the seven quality areas. The report and feedback was honest and professional. Her guidance and support allowed for changes to be made. This allowed continuous improvement for our service in all quality areas.
Stella's professionalism and knowledge of Early childhood education are some of the reasons I continue to engage her services. I would highly recommend her expertise to any Director, Nominated Supervisor, Educational Leader or Management Committee looking to assist with continuous improvement for their service or assisting leaders to excel in their roles.
In 2016 our service engaged Stella Timpano as an educational consultant. Over six sessions she mentored myself, as nominated supervisor and our educational leader. She inspired us with her vast knowledge and experience in the early childhood field. The mentoring sessions helped us to build the skills and confidence that we need in our roles as leaders. The topics that she covered in our sessions included building cohesive teams, staff appraisals, leadership skills, continuous improvement and professional development.
Following the mentoring sessions, we engaged Stella to conduct a review of our service under the National Quality Standards. She spent two days observing our program and practice. She then delivered a comprehensive report at a staff meeting giving us feedback on our practices under the Framework.
I would recommend Stella Timpano to any service who is looking for ideas and inspiration and ways of improving practise. Stella is passionate about early childhood education and providing support for educators and services
