My name is Amber Summerhayes and I am joint Centre Managers at Sunkids Robina, alongside Renee Bradley. I have had the privilege of working in this beautiful brand new centre since it opened in August 2016.
My career in childcare began in 2009 when I was offered an assistant position with Sunkids. Within a short time, I realised I had found my passion for working with young children and loved being a part of their day to day development. Over the past 7 years I have worked my way up from an Assistant to a Senior Educator, and now I am Centre Manager here at Robina and absolutely love it! I am so excited to be a part of this new centre, creating a warm, stimulating environment for young children.
I am currently studying my Bachelor in Primary Education in order to build upon the knowledge I have gained already. I believe I have an immense amount of experience and understanding of all aspects of the childcare industry. Although I feel there is always room for improvement and further self-growth.
I have a beautiful family, which I just adore. My partner’s name is Tim and we have a blended family, of 3 children. My daughter, Grace is 2 years old, Cameryn is 10, and Charli 7. We enjoy lots of quality time together and love getting out of the house to explore all the things the Gold Coast has to offer!
I look forward to getting to know each and every one of you and welcoming you to our beautiful centre on a daily basis. My aim is to ensure we provide the highest quality education and care for your child. You can be rest assured that your little one will have the best start in life, here with us at Sunkids Robina.
I look forward to meeting you
My name is Renee Bradley and I am one of the joint Centre Managers here at Sunkids Robina.
I have completed my Diploma in Children’s Services and have enjoyed my journey working through each aspect within Children’s Services to achieve my goals. I have been working as a Centre Manager for Sunkids on Scottsdale, before I stepped into the role of joint Centre Manager here at Robina with Amber Summerhayes. I feel great pride in having the opportunity to work in such a beautiful Centre on the Gold Coast, with an amazing environment that makes staff, parents and children all feel welcome.
I feel connected and inspired by the Sunkids Philosophy as I believe all children are a precious trust, and deserve to excel in an environment built on respect, creativity and love. I feel enjoyment and gratification when reflecting on the relationships and environment we as a team have created within our Centre.
As a community, we have created a welcoming and relaxed environment that emphasizes on the value we place on parent’s ideas, suggestions and involvement, as we understand you are the first educators. We foster the children’s needs and interests through an emergent curriculum, while always focusing on building respectful and genuine relationships.
You will always be greeted with a smile and open arms as we welcome you to join our wonderful Sunkids Robina family.
