THE Good­start Early Learn­ing in Proser­pine re­cently wel­comed new cen­tre di­rec­tor Sarah Voigt to the team.

Good­start Early Learn­ing is a not-for-profit or­gan­i­sa­tion that pro­vides qual­ity care for chil­dren from birth to five years of age.

The Proser­pine cen­tre has been op­er­a­tional for sev­eral years un­der the guid­ance of a na­tional or­gan­i­sa­tion but this year they will be pro­vid­ing on­go­ing qual­ity care for lo­cal chil­dren un­der the guid­ance of Ms Voigt.

Ms Voigt holds a Bach­e­lor of Ed­u­ca­tion spe­cial­is­ing in early child­hood and has been teach­ing in schools and long day care cen­tres since 2001.

Ms Voigt has al­ready taught at Proser­pine State School as an early years class teacher and at St Cather­ine’s Catholic School as part of the LOTE (Lan­guages Other Than English) In­done­sian team.

She com­mits her time out­side work hours to pro­vid­ing care for her young fam­ily, as well as as­sist­ing the lo­cal navy cadet unit with their com­mu­nity in­volve­ment projects.

Al­though the role of cen­tre di­rec­tor of­fers many new chal­lenges, Ms Voigt is ex­cited to take on this new ven­ture in her ca­reer.

She hopes to guide the staff of Good­start Proser­pine to be the best avail­able car­ers for chil­dren in the lo- cal com­mu­nity.

She plans to en­gage the team in var­i­ous projects to make the cen­tre’s en­vi­ron­ment more ed­u­ca­tional and ap­peal­ing to chil­dren and their fam­i­lies, with a strong fo­cus on build­ing net­works within the lo­cal com­mu­nity.

Ms Voigt is happy to re­ceive feed­back and is look­ing for­ward to work­ing with lo­cal or­gan­i­sa­tions to en­sure the cen­tre re­mains a dy­namic part of the com­mu­nity.
