Head shot of staff member Safoora Imram

Bethany Kindergarten Services’ Safoora Imram loves her job.

As an assistant educator at Bell Post Hill Kindergarten, Safoora enjoys working with an experienced and cooperative team, in hours that suit her lifestyle having a young family of her own.

But most of all, she gets to have fun every day.

“It’s so much fun working with children.” Safoora says.

“Kindergarten age children are so curious, funny and busy and it’s amazing to see the growth in children over the year,” she said.

Safoora is one of 135 early childhood education staff employed at Bethany Kindergarten Services.

Four Safoora, who has worked as a kindergarten educator for the past 4 years, she has found a job she loves that also provides great balance between work and caring for her own children.

“I love the timings of the sessions. It really suits me with a young family of my own.”

Bethany Kindergarten Services implements an Anti-Bias curriculum which focuses of removing gender, disability and cultural bias from kindergarten programs.

For Safoora, the curriculum further supports the anti-bias approach that she already implements in her teaching.

“As educators we are inclusive and supportive of all the children anyway but anti-bias curriculum has embedded inclusion and support of each child’s needs in our program without bias,” Safoora said.

“We have a child attending this year and at the start of the year he was not showing any emotions and tried to be the tough one who doesn’t get hurt, she said.

“We worked with him through discussions and role play to help him express his feelings and now he has more empathy and he shows emotions.”

“He has a very kind heart and his progress throughout the year has been very rewarding to observe.”
