Beck Patton – Class of 2010

GoodStart Centre Director

Beck graduated in 2010, and has always known that she wanted to work in Childcare. After her first placement in a Kindergarten Beck says she was hooked. After completing Year 12, she was accepted into a Diploma of Children Services, leading her to be hired at Goodstart Early Learning.

Over Beck’s first 4 years of working in the Early Education industry she was offered a leadership position, allowing her to operate and run her own service at the young age of 24. She has now been a Director for 4 years, which has been challenging and exciting. Recently she has been appointed as a mentor to new Centre Directors and Assistant Directors across Ballarat.

One piece of advice is not everything goes to plan, which is okay. When leaving school you may have an ideal career, but may realise that it’s not for you or even find passion in another area of expertise. Life is constantly throwing opportunities, pick one and dive in.
Congratulations on your endeavours at Goodstart Early Learning!
