I think that by becoming involved, especially in recent times, the children get to see that side of him and as I say, they are very proud of him. As a parent whose daughters attended the centre, then being director for the past five years, can you tell us why early education is so important? Their first few steps away from that and that ability to realise that they can have friendships other than with the family, are important lessons for a young person.
Now I find myself in a situation where I can talk about these things and draw attention to these things, not as a person with letters after my name but as a person who works in early childhood; I am very happy to do that. Equally, the people who work in early childhood have often been undervalued. As a society, and this is not just a political comment, we need to value our early childhood educators because they are doing a job in partnership with families, which I think is very important.
How difficult is it, as a carer, to speak to parents about any concerns you have with their child for example speech delays or hearing difficulty? My guiding principle is that we have to treat every child as if they are our own and if it was my own child, as a parent, I would want to be told [about any concerns] — we owe it to the families who have children in our care.
Prince Harry to meet Tony Abbott's 'not bad-looking' daughters
Do you have any house rules, for example with phones and emails, considering that you and Tony are in such demand? Tony has been magnificent. For 20 years, when he walks in the door the phone is switched off.
Mind you, in recent times he has a tendency to check his phone but that is totally understandable and I will give him a little leeway. Tony has honestly been fantastic. He is completely devoted to family time.
He is committed to doing that and long may that continue. We may not be able to, as demands are far greater — certainly a very disciplined approach is required.
Prince Harry meets Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott and his two daughters
Do you cycle with Tony? My mother has type 2 diabetes so I am a prime candidate and so last Christmas, Tony gave me a bike. I had decided and this is not a political response that was going to be my year to get fit and be well. I have cut out bread and dairy and supplemented with other things. I went to see a naturopath and I got on the bike — it has really been life changing!
Yesterday, for example, I went up and down the hills around home for 40 minutes and I feel great! My mother at this age was slowing down but I think 50 is the new 40 and why slow down if it means you are healthy and happier?
Your relationships are stronger and more confident; then everyone wins. The people and the families are fantastic. The people who work at the centre are locals and they are all fabulous. Tell us a bit about bringing up your daughters in this area.
Just prior to Tony moving into politics we moved to Fox Valley Road, Wahroonga and we used to frequent all the parks around there.
We were surrounded with people like us — families committed to their communities and the places they lived in. He is an alcoholic with mental health issues and still thinks he is PM. In a passionate piece in Time magazine, she wrote about how Indian girls and women were being stigmatised and missing out on an education because of menstruation. It was one of the things that bonded them. It had been two weeks since they had last been together, and both had been looking forward to his best friend Tom Inskip's wedding.
Harry had arrived on the island via a scheduled flight, while Meghan flew in on a private jet loaned by a friend.

The wedding was a three-day celebration, and Harry had splashed out on a luxury oceanfront villa at the Round Hill Resort in Montego Bay, not far from where Meghan had married Trevor six years before.
Thrilled to be together again, the couple spent much of their time tucked away in their villa, which had its own infinity pool and butler on call. At the wedding service Meghan had a reserved seat next to Harry in one of the front rows, and according to one guest she mingled confidently while Harry was busy ushering people to their seats.
In her flowing designer sundress and shades, she fitted in with the well-heeled crowd and already knew most of Harry's inner circle. Helpfully, she also got along well with Tom's bride Lara who, like many of Harry's friends, felt that Meghan was a positive influence on him.
Certainly, they couldn't have seemed happier as they emerged from the church after the service hand-in-hand. At the reception that night, Harry barely left Meghan's side.
When the DJ started playing, they took to the dance floor and partied into the early hours, but Harry was on his best behaviour, not drinking too much and even limiting his beloved Marlboro Lights. Skippy was as surprised as everyone else at the new Harry. Having partied around the world, from Croatia to Vegas, he and Harry were partners in crime, but Harry gave the tequila shots a miss, saying he wanted to remember the night and enjoy it.
That wasn't to say he didn't have fun, and at one point he was dancing so enthusiastically to a Michael Jackson song with Meghan that he accidentally crashed into a waiter and sent a tray of drinks flying.
Letting loose for Harry now was very different to his former days as a single man, where he was spotted partying often. Meghan Markle was clearly more comfortable with the public aspect of her relationship with Prince Harry than his former girlfriends. While the island had mixed memories for Meghan, she and Harry had a wonderful time swimming in the sea and drinking sundowners on the beach.
Harry seemed blissfully happy and strolled around the resort barefoot, with Meghan at his side. His mood soured when they were photographed together on their balcony by a paparazzo, and Harry was upset that their romantic getaway was being infringed upon, but Meghan comforted him and reasoned, what did it matter? The world knew they were an item, and nothing should spoil their happiness.
Before they left the island Harry booked a table at the Caves, one of the island's most prestigious restaurants, where they enjoyed supper in a candlelit cave where no one could spy on them. As they bid each other farewell at the end of the holiday, both knew that things between them were serious. While it was still relatively early days, the relationship was progressing quickly, and Harry and Meghan were already making plans for the future.
Meghan was preparing to film her seventh season of Suits, and she had already decided that it would probably be her last. She wanted to focus more on her charity work and if things with Harry were to go to the next level, she knew that one of the sacrifices she would likely have to make would be her career. It was something Chelsy and Cressida had not been prepared to do, but Meghan felt differently.
She was older, possibly wiser, and had, as far as she was concerned, reached the pinnacle of her acting career.
