and South Coast. Before starting my job at Wee Wonders I completed my HSC at JJ Cahill Memorial High School. Through my high school years I studied Exploring Early Childhood. I had a lot of hobbies including: dancing, acting, swimming and art — just to name a few. Dancing was my main hobby and I participated in many competitions over a 16 year period. Performing at the opening ceremony of the Sydney Olympics was the biggest dancing thrill I had. Having thousands of people shouting “Aussie, Aussie, Aussie” as I tapped my way down the stairs was amazing!
I’ve wanted to be a childcare worker for as long as I can remember and I’m so happy that I found this warm loving environment. I started at Wee Wonders as a trainee the day I turned 18. I’ve completed my Cert III and Diploma. In 2013 I also completed my Bachelor of Teaching in Early Childhood. I always really looking forward to starting with my new little nursery group each year, and caring and teaching them for their first years before they move up to the Big Room. I’m always sad to see another group of my babies head off to big school at the end of each year… Can’t we just keep them forever?!
I would like to thank Siobhan, Josie (Nan), and Patrick (Pa) for giving me the opportunity and guidance over the last 19 years to help me become the childcare worker I am today. Each year here at Wee Wonders I’ve learnt and grown as a person and I believe I have Siobhan to thank for this as she’s a wonderful role model. I love working here and working with your children and having a family in my workplace, too.
