    • My name is Rachael and I’m lucky enough to work for Explore & Develop Penrith. I am an Early Childhood teacher and I am passionate about providing quality care and education to children.
      I have worked within the Early Childhood sector for approximately 15 years and during that time I have spent time in many different Early learning environments.
      Quality care and education is hard to find, however upon commencing employment with Explore & Develop in 2008 I knew that I had found a service that had the same passion for learning as what I was hoping and expecting of a high quality service.
      Explore & Develop are progressive in their knowledge, learning and environments which is really important in an ever changing sector. They embrace change however also understand that sometimes when something works it doesn’t need changing.
      Explore and Develop is a professional environment which allows for educators to be continuous in their learning. Professional development and learning is offered constantly and educators are encouraged to incorporate their new knowledge in our environment.
      Explore & Develop Penrith is a part of a franchise however each Explore & Develop service is owned and operated individually . What this does mean though is that we have not only a large networking circle between all the services however we a well-qualified support team who have regular input to our services.
      So if you are looking for a working environment that allows for your input, your professional knowledge, your commitment to quality care and educators along with working within a supportive team environment then Explore & Develop is the place for you.
