Koala Group Teacher –
Hi I am Cathy, I am a mother of 2 children, and live locally in Kingston. I have been working with children for over 20 years, in a variety of Early Childhood settings, from sessional Kindergartens, to nannying, to various childcare settings in and around Melbourne. I am passionate about teaching young children, mostly by providing a play-based program structured around the child’s needs, interests and current events in their lives that are relevant to them. I believe young children are totally unique and individual, and embracing their tender age at this level is extremely satisfying for me. I am a creative person and have a passion for health and fitness in both my personal and professional life.
When preparing children for school, here at St Peters Kindergarten, we provide them with the essential strategies to use to make that transition as smooth as possible. We aim to prepare each child to succeed in every aspect of their lives and to reach their fullest potential as individuals. By implementing the Social/Emotional educational program, “You Can Do It” program. This is essentially teaching children how to be CONFIDENT, ORGANIZED, RESILIENT, PERSISTENT & how to GET ALONG with each other. These LIFE skills are fundamental to children growing as individuals, in every aspect of their lives. The local primary schools fully support this program, as they too implement aspects of it into their “Key Values System” they have at school.
