Work With Me


How can I help?

For most of my life I have been surrounded by little people, whether it has been during my 18 plus years of working as an early childhood teacher or as a parent of my own 3 children.

I have worked in both home based and centre based early childhood settings.

My pedagogy has it’s foundations in RIE and respectful care for infants, toddlers and young children and I am a passionate advocate for play-based learning.

My passion has always been fostering the lifelong love for learning in children.  As well as working with teachers to help grow them into heart-led, empowered early childhood professionals. I believe that in order for us to be the teachers and leaders that children need, we need to develop as holistic beings.

I am experienced in supporting and mentoring individuals as well as building positive team cultures.

“In order for us to have a great place for children we need to have a great place for teachers” 

I would love to chat with you to find out how I can help.
