Diploma Children’s Services

Hi. My name is Eleni Maree Wilson (Savva). I am Con & Dora Savva’s daughter, the owners of Bear Child Care. My family are from Cyprus (Greek Orthodox), and my husband from Samoa (Uniting Church) - all the while, proudly Australian!!!

We have been married for 16 years and have 5 precious children (4 Princesses and 1 handsome Prince!)... Together our marriage has created something special; a very multi-cultural Christian family; a learned tolerance and appreciation for the beauty of different cultures; different languages, people, foods, customs, celebrations and more.

This is something that we have brought to Bear Child Care: A strong Christian ethos with a passion for children to learn, grow, flourish and thrive on new cultures and their new experiences.

With 5 children, I can honestly say, “I love children”! The last 10 years in managing Bear Child Care has been a wonderfully fulfilling journey. It has been such a joy to meet new families and children, watch the children grow into little people ready for “big school” and then meeting them again years down the track when a sibling joins the BearFamily. Admittedly, i’m especially fond of our social events such as Daddy Disco and of-course our sensational Christmas Concert BBQ Spectaculars! They are such special events because they bring our Bear Families together - and that is so important to what makes Bear Child Care special!

Over the years we have also been privileged to work with children who have special, individual needs - aiding their development working closely with their families and therapists. Watching our children’s journey of learning and growing brings me much pride and satisfaction.

I feel truly blessed by God to be working in an industry so important for the safety, education and happiness of our children - they are our future. They are precious, individual, precious gifts from God. They are to be loved & treated as equals. They are God’s way of saying the world should live on...

OUR EDUCATIONAL LEADERS

Our Bear Teams are a multi-cultural, multi-talented, multi-aged collection of highly skilled and highly trained early childhood professionals. I am honoured to be working with such passionate, caring and highly professional Educators.

I aspire for our centres to achieve the highest acclaim in recognition of what’s most important - the care, the safety, the love and the education of your children, and support of you as the family.

The critical components of achieving this, is to motivate and inspire our staff to be the best possible “person” they can be, just as their Educational Institution taught them how to “educate”. Through our daily communications, the Bear Team are trained, guided, role modelled and equipped with skills to further develop their professionalism; in manners such as professional communications, respectful communications, current industry knowledge and advances, ongoing industry training and client service relationship building.

My passion for this industry, my enthusiasm, my sincere friendship, and my motivation for successfully living happiness, is what I believe attributable to the loving, respectful and long tenure of staff.

I have the upmost respect for our Educational Leaders and Centre Co-ordinators. I would like to introduce you to them below...
