OurPersonnel
Chandni Kapoor Kindergarten Teacher and Nominated Supervisor I am so thrilled to be a part of Parklands Drive team. I have attained Masters in Education and Diploma in Children’s Services. For myself, teaching provides an opportunity for continual learning and growth. One of my hopes as an educator is to create a love of learning in my students, as I share my own passion for learning with them. I feel there is a need for compassionate, strong, and dedicated individuals who are excited about working with children. In our competitive society it is important for students to not only receive a solid education, but to work with someone who is aware of and sensitive to their individual needs. I am such a person and will always strive to be the best educator that I can be.
Kathryn Dwight Assistant Director I have been a part of the Parklands Drive family for over 10 years, first as a parent and then as a co-educator. I have worked in all the rooms over the years with most of my time in the pre-school room. I have a passion for working with children and love watching them achieve their milestones. I love the feeling when I walk in and the children run and greet me in the morning (it makes me feel like a rock star). As well as raising my two beautiful children aged 16 and 14, I have achieved Certificate III in Children’s services. I have been in the childcare industry for 24 years and cannot imagine working anywhere else. Please feel free to pop in and say hi anytime xx
Kylie Stephens Lead Educator Kookaburra RoomI am so honoured to be part of the Parklands Drive family. I have a Diploma of Early Education and Care. I have 7 years’ experience in childcare. I love working at the Parklands because it’s such a fun and enjoyable environment. We are a huge family. Getting to know the children and their families is very rewarding as I am a parent of a 3 year old girl myself. I can appreciate how important the relationships between families and educators are. Being an educator is very rewarding as I get to see children grow into their own beautiful person and knowing I feel proud knowing that I helped them learn and achieve great things.
Hema Senthilkumar Lead Educator Possums RoomI have a small complete family with two children and a loving husband. I am studying to attain Diploma in Early Childhood Education. I initially joined the Parklands Drive family in 2013 as a volunteer to then become a regular staff in June 2014. Being with children makes me feel warm and loved every day. I encourage and enjoy children bringing new ideas to me, so I can build on their beautiful thoughts and plan an enjoyable filled day enabling them to develop confidence from an early age.
Jessica Goodwin Lead Educator Koala RoomI love working with children. I have a six-year-old daughter, three step children, and a little kitty cat. I am currently studying for Diploma in Early Childhood Education. I started my adventure with this adorable Centre in October 2015. I remain passionate about providing a warm and loving environment for our children where they feel welcomed and develop a strong sense of identity.
