Nominated Supervisor and Teacher


Hi, I’m Emma Winter and I’m the Nominated Supervisor and a teacher at Buninyong Uniting Kindergarten.

I have a Bachelor of Teaching with a specialisation in Early Childhood and have worked in the Early Learning sector for 15 years. I’ve led the team at Buninyong Uniting Kindergarten for 6 years.

I’m inspired by children and how they view and contribute to the world around them. Having the responsibility to respectfully nurture and scaffold a child’s learning, development and wellbeing is very special and something I don’t take for granted. I feel so privileged to work with so many children and families.

The Kinder has a long history in the community (over 60 years!), in some cases having had multiple generations of families attend.

The team at Buninyong are dedicated and invested in the children and families that attend. We strive to make change and be a voice for the vulnerable and disadvantaged. Our roles allow us to make a positive impact for children from all backgrounds.

Our team care and provide quality education and opportunities for the children that attend.

Health and wellbeing

Mental health

Our educators are trained in various programs to support the mental health of your child and are skilled in working with children who have experienced challenges and trauma. We can also provide local referrals for mental health support for families if you find yourself in need of assistance. 


We teach children about nutrition and the importance of looking after their body. We grow our own produce in our centre garden including fruit, vegetables and herbs. We encourage your child to practise food safety and encourage them to make their own, healthy choices of what they eat.

Safe environment

As a child safe organisation, our educators undergo regular working with children’s and police checks. We are focussed on delivering learning and development in a safe and supportive environment, so you can trust that your child is in good hands.
