“When I found the first five years of a child’s life are the most crucial time for learning and development, I realised that I had a passion for this! Every lecturer I had at TAFE NSW showed interest in my academic career and my life that went over and above the classroom. They don’t see you as a number; they see you as an individual.”
— Blake Stewart, TAFE NSW Bachelor of Early Childhood Education
