ECT Room Leader Possums and Educational Leader

Hi, I’m Nikki and I have a Bachelor of Early Childhood Education. I have been in the ECEC industry for 8 years first working for state preschools before moving into long day care at Nestle In Alstonville. I have been at Possum Place Preschool and ELC since 2012 when it was first established.

I was drawn to the industry as I have always found it easy to build relationships with children and I was interested in the field of education. The major lesson I have learnt from working in ECEC is learning from the experiences of your colleagues. The children have taught me to stop and enjoy being in the moment which I have been able to transfer to my home life. I am passionate about mentoring other educators in this industry and sharing my knowledge. I love that my job allows me to experience a new challenge each day.

Outside of work I love to bake and practice my gardening skills which I am still developing. I also love to relax with a good book. I am excited to be the Possums room leader in 2019!
