Hi, we’re Adam and Leeza and we’re the Lead Educators at Bagdad Uniting Outside School Hours Care. We’re both longterm team members at Bagdad Primary School.

We both hold qualifications in Education Support and have additional specialisations in first aid (Adam) and disability and learning needs (Leeza).

We’re both very passionate about ensuring children have a safe and nurturing environment where they can achieve their goals and enjoy imaginative play, sports, arts and unwinding after a busy day at school.

We’re strong believers in being creative and taking an approach with children that is individualised to them. We encourage them to explore, problem solve and develop their individual interests, strengths, and abilities, in a fun and inclusive way.

We enjoy seeing children grow to be the best they can be.
