Deborah Abbott (AKA The Pipe Piper)
Hi I’m Deb Abbott!
I am an Educator at Salamander Child Care Centre.
I have thoroughly enjoyed working in the early childhood industry for over 20 years during which I have gained my Bachelor of Teaching (Early Childhood Education).
I also have my Associate Diploma in Social Science (child studies), Certificate IV Community Services (Welfare) and my Certificate IV in Assessment and Workplace Training.
I am passionate about creating a space for children where they feel safe and empowered to learn, explore and experiment.
I fervently believe in making a stand for the rights of the child which includes child protection.
I am married to Ben and have three of my own children - Chloe, Joshua and Jacob. We love spending time in the outdoors either swimming at the beach, out in the boat or riding our bikes.
It is such a privilege to work at Salamander Child Care Centre where I gain immense satisfaction supporting and influencing young children’s learning and development.
It is a pleasure to spend my working day at Salamander Child Care Centre with its wonderful natural environment, delighting in the children, and engaging with its warm, welcoming and friendly educators.
