Daniel Ala and Cameron Brown have been employed as Support Workers at Mi Kids, a family owned Northern Beaches long-day early childcare centre and pre-school at Warriewood.
Both 18, Daniel and Cameron have been working since March this year after finishing high school. They are now considering further study in early childhood education.
Melissa Traversa, from Mi Kids Inclusion Support, said everyone had benefitted from having Daniel and Cameron involved.
“Daniel and Cameron were hired as Support Workers and their employer has spoken highly of both their innate ability and their willingness to implement their training into their practices.
“They are playing an important role in assisting children to be able to be a part of their learning environments and have had an overwhelming positive impact on the children that they work with.
“The parents and staff are so grateful for all that they have done to date.”
Sea Eagles Careers and Wellbeing Coach, Glenn Moore, said the work has very beneficial to Daniel and Cameron with their playing and training.
“It is important while you are in the Sea Eagles Pathways system to be studying or working. This has proven to be very beneficial to the players on the field,’’ Moore added.
