I have my level 6 in Early Childhood Education and Care. 

A Little Bit About Me:

I started working in Beverton preschool in 2013 with Nickola. I love exploring the outdoors with the children. Being in the outdoors provides children with open ended opportunities to learn. I enjoy spending one on one time with children getting to know them and building those positive relationships.

A Little Bit About Me:

I have been working with Muintir Childcare for the last 4.5 years. I have been working in the Early Years sector for the last 15 years. I really enjoy working with children and love watching their little personalities shine and unfold each day.


"Working for Roots and Wings has been such an absolute pleasure, having the experience of working in a quality company has highlighted what quality provision of care in the early years looks like. The team culture is one of supporting and uplifting each other - everyone helps each other out which I really enjoy as it means that everyone is valued and feels appreciated."
