“Looking at things with children is a two-way street: just as you Point out things worth noticing, they show you things you’ve missed.”
Rapunzel’s Supermarket, Ursula Kolbe
I am the Nominated Supervisor, Educational Leader and teacher for the 3-year-old Possum group. I have a Bachelor of Early Childhood Studies which I completed at Melbourne University in 2000. In 2019, I completed my Certificate IV in Training and Assessment at Box Hill Institute. Early childhood education has been a passion of mine for as long as I can remember. I have 3 wonderful children and during their time at kinder, I joined the committee where I got to experience things from a parent’s perspective.
I love getting to know all the children, finding out their interests and skills, and encouraging and guiding them in their development. I believe in creating an environment where children are comfortable and confident to explore, learn and grow. An integral part of this, I believe is to develop strong relationships with not just the child but their families as well, in order for each child to reach their full potential.
Most importantly, I want each child to have fun and look forward to their time at kinder, whilst making wonderful memories along the way.
