I have worked in kindergartens for the last 20 years, first in New Zealand, before coming to Australia with my partner and two children. I have been part of the Upper Mount Gravatt kindergarten for the last 8 years.
After completing my degree in 2012 I began teaching in both the Primary and Early Childhood settings. I have been a teacher at Upper Mount Gravatt Kindergarten since 2014 and commenced as the Teacher/ Director in 2022. I absolutely love working at this community kindergarten and have enjoyed the challenges and rewards that come with teaching the children in their year before school.
Hazel has been a Bookkeeper at a variety of different companies for a number of years. She has enjoyed being treasurer on school committees and getting involved in all things numbers.
When she is not at the kindergarten doing the books, she enjoys spending time with her two children and doing weekenders camping with her husband.
Sammy has previously spent her time working in the Kindergarten sector at another Community Kindergarten. She has a broad knowledge and understanding on the systems and is enjoying getting to know all the families currently enrolled. Sammy is the welcoming face you will see in the office and the helping hand over the phone. When Sammy is not at work, she is enjoying spending time with her beautiful children.
