Leading Educator

Kristy

Hi, I’m Kristy and I’m the Leading Educator at Gormandale Uniting Kindergarten. I’ve worked in a variety of early years settings for over 20 years.

I have a Bachelor of Early Childhood Studies and a Post Graduate Diploma of Education (inclusive and Special Education).

I value children’s differences and love supporting their desire to learn through play-based imaginative play spaces and intentional teaching moments. I feel that I have a natural ability to connect with children and foster their interests and development in all learning areas.

We hope that when entrusting your child’s learning to the Educators at Gormandale Uniting Kindergarten, you will feel that they are supported in their connectedness with peers and educators and that the learning environment will actively encourage them to explore their own interests and strengths.

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 also offer mental health support for families if you find yourself in need of assistance. 

Nutrition

Your child will learn about good nutrition to form healthy eating habits. We do this by growing fruit, vegetables and herbs in our centre garden. We also teach food safety practices. We enjoy cooking sessions to teach the children how to prepare healthy food.

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.
