The team at Port Macquarie Hastings are celebrating 40 years in 2021. Hastings Early Intervention Program began operating in 1981 and has been supporting families with children with disabilities for four decades. This year a number of staff also celebrate milestones with long service.
This week we farewell Cheryl after 17 years with Early Connections.
For ten years Cheryl held management positions at the Hastings Early Intervention Program which is now a member of the Early Connections Alliance.
Cheryl spent a year travelling around Australia in a caravan and rejoined our team in 2017.
“I’ve loved meeting so many special families and children and working with such a wonderful team of professionals,” said Cheryl.
“The most rewarding things are helping parents and caregivers see that they are the most important teacher or therapist in their child’s life and watching them and their child grow in confidence.”
Cheryl brought experience and compassion to the organisation and a natural ability to make connections. Cheryl will be greatly missed by staff and families and we wish her all the best for her next chapter.
Congratulations to the team for your long service
