Papilio Early Learning Schofields Welcome’s Sylvania Hua As Centre Manager

As we excitedly await the opening date of Papilio Early Learning Schofields in Sydney’s western suburbs, we are proud to announce that long-term Papilio Early Learning employee Sylvania Hua will be joining the centre community as Centre Manager.  

Sylvania began her career with Affinity Education Group (the owner and operator of Lifelong Learning Centres) in 2014 at Papilio Early Learning North Strathfield (Orange Campus). After seven years at North Strathfield and extensive experience as Assistant Centre Manager and Educational Leader, Sylvania is well-prepared for her new role.  

We spoke with Sylvania to learn more about her approach to early learning, her plans for Papilio Early Learning Schofields, and more.  

Welcome Sylvania Hua to the Papilio Early Learning Schofields Team as Centre Manager

Sylvania, tell us a bit about your career in the early childhood education and care sector and how you came to be the Centre Manager at Papilio Early Learning Schofields. 
I have completed a Bachelor of Education (Early Childhood 0-5 years) and have utilised this knowledge during my time as Educational Leader and Assistant Centre Manager at our sister-centre, Papilio Early Learning North Strathfield (Orange Campus). After 7 years at this centre, when the opportunity arose to apply for this role at a brand-new centre in Schofields, I felt confident that I was ready for the next step in my career.  

What do you love most about being an educator in the early childhood education and care sector? 
It sparks joy to witness the enriching and stimulating programs my team develops to help children grow through their developmental stages. Educators face new challenging moments every day, but overcoming these barriers creates a stepping stone for us to learn how to resolve and explore new strategies and techniques when working with young children. 

Tell us about your current centre – what do you love the most about it?  
I’ve especially enjoyed my time working in the preschool room. This room is the children’s final step before primary school, and this is the stage where I can make a long-lasting impact on their future learning. I love the engagement and interactions we share and connecting with them on an intellectual and emotional level. 

Papilio Children Line-Up, Excited And Happy To Be Learning

What do you hope to achieve in your new role at Papilio Early Learning Schofields?  
I’m excited to bring high-quality care and education to the community by providing the Papilio spirit of learning. I look forward to sharing the Papilio name with families in the community and showcasing the fantastic service that we are. 

What impact do you hope Papilio Early Learning Schofield has in the local community? 
Community engagement is important to me and the Papilio Difference. My vision is that Papilio Early Learning Schofields will develop a strong rapport with its’ community, families and local businesses. I hope that families in the community will be able to think of Papilio Schofield as the best early childhood service and that the children who attend our service will become confident, independent and inspiring individuals who are prepared for lifelong learning.
