Centre Director


Hi, my name is Mel, and I am the Centre Director at Scots Early Learning. I hold a Certificate III and Diploma of Children’s Services and have worked in the industry for over a decade.

Early in my career, I discovered a natural ability to connect with children who struggled in social interactions. Building strong relationships with families and watching children bloom into engaged learners inspires me. I am extremely passionate that children are incredible teachers when life is explored alongside them.

By placing your child at Scots, we will welcome you as a part of our community. Your child will be safe and supported and their needs actively met throughout their growing developmental stages. We’ll communicate with you daily that your child’s voice is being heard, acted upon and reflected on as part of our program. Most importantly we wish for each child to feel nurtured and that their educators are part of their community.

Health and wellbeing

Mental health

Our educators are trained in various programs to support the mental health of your child and are skilled in working with children who have experienced challenges and trauma. We also offer mental health support for families if you find yourself in need of assistance.


We teach the importance of nutrition and a healthy lifestyle. Your child will help grow fruit and vegetables in our garden. Our food is prepared onsite from local ingredients so your child can enjoy a healthy, balanced diet full of variety and flavour. We also cater for all dietary needs, including cultural dietary requirements. The children are taught about the importance of food safety.

Safe environment

As a child safe organisation, our educators undergo regular working with children’s and police checks. We are focused on delivering learning and development in a safe and supportive environment, so you can trust that your child is in good hands.
