DIPLOMA OF CHILDREN’S SERVICES
My name is Carol and I have been working in Early Childhood Education since 1996. My passion for working with young children came from having my own family and seeing them enjoy the benefits of an early childhood education setting. I have worked closely with children and families across all age groups and commenced as Director at Wandana Avenue Early and Kinder in 2003. I believe that laying the foundations within the first five years leads to a lifetime love of learning. Outside of Wandana Avenue ELK, I enjoy spending time with my husband, adult children and their partners. We enjoy spending time on the river during summer and have discovered a love of overseas travel. I look forward to supporting your child through their learning journey here at Wandana Avenue Early Learning and Kinder.
BACHELOR OF EARLY CHILDHOOD EDUCATION
My name is Ellise and I have been working at Wandana Avenue Early Learning and Kinder as the Early Childhood Teacher for 2 years. I studied my Bachelor of Education (Early Childhood) at the University of South Australia, completing my degree in 2015. I chose to study Early Childhood Education as I have always been interested in working with younger children, supporting their development and watching them grow as learners. While completing my studies I worked in a lunch cover position across all age groups and upon finishing my degree I began my position as ECT in the Kinder room. I love working in the Kinder room as each day presents new challenges and opportunities and I am always learning something new about myself and the children. Outside of Wandana Avenue I enjoy spending time with my partner and family and continuing my tap and jazz dancing on a weekly basis.
