About Us

A stimulating environment children will love

Tiny Scholars Child Care and Preschool has been serving the community and has educated hundreds of children since 1990. Over time we have learnt that the paramount consideration is to make your child school ready through the day to day connection with the world through stimulation, observation, interaction and feedback.

Ermington is approximately 15km South West of Sydney, just past Parramatta.

Our Child Care Centre focuses on problem solving, decision making and self-help, while promoting interpersonal communications. These are key elements which contribute to the childs development, self esteem and confidence.

Through regular discussion with the NSW Early Childhood Education and Care Directorate our promise to parents out there is that we will endevour to work hard to make your child a tiny scholar.

Meet Our Friendly Staff

Mrs. Mai – Director & Nominated Supervisor

Hi, my name is Mai and I am proudly the Director of the Tiny Scholars Childcare & Preschool. I have a very strong passion in Children including their development. I enjoy reading lots about strategies in dealing with children and I have a particular interest in additional needs children.

I have directed a number of childcare centres throughout my career and particularly enjoy working with my staff to ensure that the operation of the business is both successful and is always developing to ensure that Children, families and children all work together for the best interests of our children.

I have a particular important motto and that is that “children are our future” and the Early Years Framework is a good way to cherish a child’s interests and expanding on them to allow them to be fine young children and eventually independent adults who have a sense of being, belonging and becoming.

I grew up in a large family surrounded by lots of children and naturally this is where my passion for working with children came from. I believe that children are our future and I love helping them develop and explore their limitations as they grow into strong independent people.

I am a strong advocate for providing high quality care and education for the inclusion of all children with varying backgrounds and abilities. I believe that children in early childhood learn best though play experiences and environments where choice, imagination and independence are promoted and encouraged.

I am a firm believer of adhering to the current NSW Early Childhood law and regulations and I am in regular contact with the NSW Early Childhood Directorate in working out how children can become better facilitated.

Ms. Maha – Certified Supervisor

Hi, my name is Maha and I am the proudly a certified Supervisor and Room leader  of the Tiny Scholars Childcare & Preschool, Koala’s Room.

I have successfully completed a Diploma in Children’s Services and am looking to further advance my knowledge in children’s education by completing a Bachelor of Early Childhood Education. I am also qualified in the treatment of First Aid, Asthma and Anaphylaxis. I also hold a certificate in Food Handling.

I am very passionate about working with children and find the job very rewarding and fulfilling. I have undergone various training in school readiness ensuring that all children are ready for their very important milestone, of ‘big school’. To assist me in this I have consulted many leaders in the industry on a number of occasions to assist with this.

I have worked at the Tiny Scholars Childcare & Preschool for 2 year where I started my journey at another childcare centre as a trainee and worked my way up to a certified supervisor. I am proud to be involved in a centre which prides itself on providing high quality education and care in a warm, happy and homely environment. I am also proud to serve the community of Ermington which I reside beside.

Hello my name is Salwa Tuma,

I have completed my Diploma of Children’s services with seven years of experience working with children through my years in Childcare as well as babysitting. At my pervious centre I was the room leader of the toddler’s room as well as a certified supervisor.  Working with children has been my long time passion as I love the idea of working with children and making a difference in their important years of childhood.

I am aware that the first 5 years of a childrens life is the most crucial as they develop the skills that they use as they grow older. My favourite part of this industry is creating special memories and being able to build a special relationship with each individual child and their families. I also love getting creative with the children through art and craft. I am currently the room leader of the Koalas Room and I look forward to contributing to every single child in my care. I look forward to mentoring my staff and ensuring that we all work for the same ambitions to make your children our future.

As part of my personal philosophy, I strive on building appropriate and strong relationships with families, children, and educators. I personally believe children learn through play as this provides them with the tools needed to build on their knowledge and skills through planned and spontaneous experiences. With my skills and knowledge in the EYLF and the NQS I am able to apply this to my everyday teaching, as I focus on being responsive to each child’s individual interest to create a meaningful learning experience.

I look forward to getting to know each and individual child and being a part of this new family at Tiny Scholars.
