I’m Therese, and I’ve had the pleasure of teaching at Upper Beaconsfield Kindergarten for the past 12 years. It is a privilege to be involved in such a wonderful, warm community. I believe very strongly that feeling a sense of connectedness and belonging is so important in allowing children to develop a strong, positive sense of self. I have a passion for taking care of the world we live in and appreciating our beautiful, unique natural environment, and hope to encourage our Kinder children to do the same. I also LOVE reading stories, and encouraging children to share in the joy of reading!
Welcome to our wonderful pre-school. My name is Deborah and I have just started here this year. Already I am loving being part of this dynamic team of educators. I also work at Emerald pre-school running the 3 year old program and help mentor students in child care for Chisholm.
I have two teenage boys, one starting uni this year and the other in year 11. I also have a husband who I love travelling with. I enjoy reading, keeping fit, scrapbooking, dancing and spending time with friends and family.
When implementing our program’s I am very passionate about ensuring the children are not only stimulated but nurtured and supported during their learning journey. I use song, puppets, music & movement, and storytelling to promote language and literature and build self-esteem and confidence. Call in and say hello. We are surrounded in the most amazing environment, both inside and outside, where children can get back to nature.×
Hi there…I’m a mum of three grown up children and love living in the beautiful community of Upper Beaconsfield. I love walking, watching the Hawks play footy and spending time down at Philiip Island with family and friends.
I have worked in the children’s services field for 8 years in various capacities from playgroups, long daycare and occasional care. But my passion is kindergarten and I love working with the team at Upper Beaconsfield.
We are very much like one big family and work together to assure the best possible educational outcomes for all the children that attend our wonderful kindergarten.
My name is Alison and I am the Co-educator within the caring, dedicated team of Upper Beaconsfield Kindergarten. Over the last few years, I have also been privileged to work within the four year old kindergarten programme.
I am currently furthering my education by studying a Diploma in Education and Care. This will ensure that I am continually extending my skills to better educate the children in my care.
The most rewarding part of educating children is being part of their “moments of discovery”.
I live in Berwick with my husband and two sons. I enjoy reading, dinner with friends, and keeping fit.
