Introducing Anthea!

Curriculum Leader, Nido Early School Willetton

My Background

I have simultaneously worked towards my Bachelor of Education (majoring in Early Childhood Education), whilst also working with children aged 0 – 6 years in Early Learning centres. I also have extensive experience working for not-for-profits companies as well as within low socio economic areas. My professional experience ranges from qualified educator roles to director of an early childhood centre. At the moment, I am working in the role of Curriculum Leader at Nido Early School and love having the opportunity to apply the Reggio Emilia approach in all day-to-day activities.

My Passion

‘I choose to view children as capable and provide them with opportunities to harness their potential and learn life skills along the journey’

My Nido Top Three

I love the following things about teaching at Nido…

  1. Nido Early School’s curriculum allows children to make choices throughout the day and to direct their own learning experience, with the guidance of the nature-inspired learning environment and the educators. This provides a platform for exploration, proactive learning and an amplified sense of curiosity, which will stay with and serve children for life.
  2. One great aspect of Nido Early School is our focus on inviting parents to take part in the educational process. For example, here at Willetton, we have installed a ‘hopes and dreams’ board on which parents can post milestones they would like their children to achieve, short and long term learning goals etc.
  3. The ability to make a really big impact on our future generation by providing best quality care. 
My super powers: If I were a superhero, I would… have the ability to complete paperwork in an environmentally friendly and highly efficient way, so that I have more time to spend with the children and to pass on my knowledge.
