First Early Learning in Hastings is a fantastic location to the local and surrounding community for early childhood education and service. Hastings is a large fishing town and port on the Mornington Peninsula, Victoria, Australia, as a part of the urban enclave on Western Port comprising Hastings, Bittern, Crib Point, Tyabb, and Somerville.
It has been an exciting adventure opening our centre in October 2019 to become FIRST early learning and welcoming all the current and new children, families and educators into our amazing Reggio Emilia Inspired service. It is our continued mission and vision to provide an educational, learning and home away from home nurturing environment for all children ages 6 weeks to 5 years.
First early learning Hastings provides quality care and education to 120 children per day with 6 connecting class rooms.
Our Centre Director
My name is Kylie Villiers and I am the Centre Director at FiRST Early Learning, Hastings.
I have worked in the childcare industry for 25+ years in various roles and services including Long Day Care, Sessional Kinder, Occasional Care, Before & After School Care and Vacation Care. I believe I am an asset to FiRST because of my vast experience, and as I am organised, friendly, determined – I never give up, I love challenges!
My personal goal as a Centre Director is to consistently provide a service where families feel welcomed, supported, and comfortable to leave their children. I am passionate about providing friendly and warm environments that provide quality care where children can be children.
I chose to further my career as a Centre Director at FiRST Early Learning as I loved the homely, family feeling that the Centre’s offer in a beautiful, natural setting. FiRST provides quality programs, experiences and learning opportunities for children and families to explore and grow.
