From Sarah: “I have been working in Early Childhood in a pre-school setting for the past 14 years. This has enabled me to develop warm and respectful relationships with young children and their families, to promote learning and development in pre-school children. I am particularly passionate about providing high quality programs for 3 year old kinder. “
From Lisa: “Kinder is a happy place to be. A special time in a child’s life, it is a time of fun, laughter and learning through play, making friends, exploring and discovering. It is my aim to encourage each child’s individuality, free expression of ideas, self-involvement and active participation, in a program of play experiences, that inspire, challenge and support. Kinder is a wonderful year for both the children and their families, and the growth and development that occurs from the beginning of the year to the end, is just amazing! As an Early Childhood Teacher, it is such a pleasure to watch and be a part of each child’s development.”
