Assistant Director and ECT Educational Leader Kangaroos

Hi, I’m Elly and I have a Bachelor of Education in ECE and Primary. I started working at Possum Place in 2014 before moving to London to teach in a school for 18 months in 2017. I am very excited to be back at Posusms and to be continuing my career in this incredible service.

I was inspired to get into ECEC because of my mum, Lisa. She is the owner and director of three childcare centres and has shown me the privilege of educating young children every day as well as incredible leadership and management skills. I am passionate about transitioning children to school and making sure they are socially and emotionally confident and ready to make their next step in life. Whilst working in this profession I have learnt that no two days are the same. The children bring so much happiness and energy to each moment and it is the little things that matter the most.

Outside of work I love keeping active and being by the beach. I also enjoy Summer BBQ’s with my friends and family.  I cannot wait for 2019 to start and am looking forward to commencing my role as Assistant Director as well as supporting Abby in the Kangaroo room.
