2IC, Bachelor of Early Childhood Educator
Miss Courtney has worked at Gwandalan Preschool for 5 years and has worked in the industry for 9. Her journey here started as a student for her practical and she was quickly recognised as an asset to our team. Miss Courtney has predominantly worked in the 4-5 Echidna Room and believes the last year of preschool is the foundation of building children's social skills, self-help skills, confidence within themselves and build an understanding of language, literacy and mathematical concepts.
"Children learn, grow and thrive in environments where they feel safe, supported, respected and valued. Building strong relationships with children and their families, I feel children are able to grow their skills and abilities, and explore and discover learning through many avenues". This year Miss Courtney has taken on the role of interim Nominated Supervisor while Miss Hayley is on maternity leave. Miss Courtney is a mum of two children, Byron (5) and Imogen (3).
