Libby- Bachelor Education & Diploma of Teaching Early Childhood Education – Co-Director, Group 1 Teacher, Nominated Supervisor, Educational Leader
I have enjoyed being a co-director and teacher at Mott Park since 2003. I am dedicated to helping children be all of who they can be. I love making connections with our families and supporting parents in their parenting role. No two days are the same and I continue to be inspired to learn and grow alongside the children, families and my colleagues.
Eileen - Diploma in Early Childhood Care and Education – Group 1 Assistant Educator
I've being working as an Assistant Educator at Mott Park since 2019, but I have been part of the C&K family since 2014. I am so happy to be working with children. I love seeing the children's confidence build and the pride they display when completing art pieces, new tasks and making new friends at Kindy. I am personally just a big child at heart and I love to join in the children's games, activities and role plays. Every day is a fun exciting day at Mott Park Kindy.
Natalie - Bachelor Education (Early Childhood) – Co-Director, Group 2 Teacher, Nominated Supervisor
I began at Mott Park Kindy in 2007, as a relief assistant whilst studying, and continued in various roles including Part Time Assistant, Inclusion Support Assistant, and contract Co-Director/Teacher. I began my permanent role of Co-Director and Teacher at Mott Park in 2012. I have also been a parent at Mott Park Kindy, seeing our wonderful centre through my daughter's eyes in 2021. I love developing relationships with children, supporting their interests and learning as I join them in play and exploration. I am especially passionate about literacy and learning about sensory processing. I also value the amazing sense of community we have at Mott Park Kindy.
Benita Cech- Associate Diploma Early Childhood Care and Education
I was lucky enough to join the Mott Park Kindy Team in 2021. My favourite thing about children is their sense of curiosity and wonder, they remind me that there is always something new to learn and I love doing this along with them here at Kindy.
It is rewarding to see the children play, explore, experiment, problem solve and perservere as they master new skills and develop independence. I feel very privileged to be part of this very special time in their lives.
Jo Hartnett - Administration Officer
I have been fortunate to be part of the C&K family for over 15 years.
My two children also attended a C&K kindergarten and loved it.
It is rewarding for me to try and keep the kindy running smoothly and provide
strong support to the parents, committee and staff. I also really enjoy meeting new families and helping them transition to kindergarten life.
