    I have worked in Education since I left school, just under 20 years. I started with my certificate in early childhood, went onto study my diploma in children services and loved it so much I continued to do my bachelor in education (Early Childhood). After leaving university, I was a special needs teacher, Kindy teacher and before coming to Marchant Park Kindy I was a prep/ grade 1 teacher. I came back to Kindy as its where all the fun is. Kindy is where children can learn through play.

    My teaching is about boosting our little ones confidence, resilience, self- esteem and independence. School is such a busy time for our children and I want to ensure that emotionally they are ready.  Through their interests I try to imbed a love of lifelong learning. Kindy is about play, exploring, learning new things and extending on knowledge with friends in a safe and supportive environment.

    I am a mum to 2 young boys, who both went through Community Kindy, I know the importance of a good kindergarten. I have such strong ties to the Marchant Park Kindergarten as both my brothers attended here, and I grew up in the Geebung community.
