Jacqui nabs national award for childcare
THERE were no huge expectations for Jacqui Taylor as she headed to Sydney for the national Australian Family and Early Education Care Awards.
The Casino child care director at Rainbow Station Early Education Centre walked away with the Nestle Nan Toddler Early Childhood Director of the Year award at the Shangri-La Hotel last Friday night.
"I am truly humbled," she said.
"As there are many people who do a great job."
Ms Taylor was nominated from more than 1000 people to make it to the finals of 100 from across the country.
From these 100 finalists, five state winners were chosen to contest the prestigious national title.
They were required to meet with the judging panel to demonstrate their commitment and promise for quality improvement and innovation in the child care sector.
"Just to be nominated is a special feeling," Ms Taylor said.
"It's so nice that people have gone out of their way to nominate me."
