Hi my name is Kat and I have been in the early learning sector for 18 years mainly working as an Early Childhood Teacher and more recently as an Educational Leader mentoring and supporting educators in best practice.
I have three children aged from 12 to 21 and my family and I moved to the Gold Coast from New Zealand in 2014.
I live locally and am extremely happy to be working in and serving my local community which I love s so much.
I believe in the concept of lifelong learning, helping children to feel a sense of Belonging and working collaboratively with colleagues, young people and their families to provide the best education and care possible.
Helping young people to develop the skills they need to grow and contribute to society with competence and confidence is where my heart lies as someone who works closely with children and their families.
I have experience in working with the families of the young people in my care to provide the best outcomes for all involved. This has been possible by my strength to be able to confidently and comfortably develop and maintain genuine relationships with parents, caregivers and family members.
I am solutions based, have a growth mindset, and am committed to working smart to find the best possible outcomes for all young children and families I work with. I have a reflective nature and an enquiring mind therefore am consistently looking for ways to keep my practice up to date and relevant to the needs of the children and families in my care.
I look forward to welcoming you and your family to Arden Early Learning.
