We recognise the importance of providing quality, early childhood education by employing a skilled and knowledgeable workforce. Apollo Kindergarten makes every effort to maintain a 100% qualified teaching team and provide professional development for all our teachers.
Our Management team all hold education qualifications and work together to provide the best possible education and care for children and adults. Sam Wester (B.Ed (ECE)) is the Manager at Apollo Kindergarten. She is supported by Maria Anstis (DipTching (ECE)) , the Owner and Tiffany Sutherland ((B.A.Ed GradDipBus), Regional Manager. Kathleen Madrigal (Grad Dip EC) is head teacher in Classroom 1, Janelle Smith (B.Ed(EC Teaching)) in Classroom 2, Sharmini Paddick (DipTching(ECE)) in Classroom 3 and Marion Wadham (DipTching(ECE)) in Classroom 4. Our many other teachers are a mixture of qualified, skilled or in training and are selected because of their commitment to providing quality teaching for your child.
Your child will benefit from our strong team culture as we work together to support learning and nurture and promote a growth mindset. Teachers will assist children to understand that the brain works like a muscle and that it can grow through play (which is identified as child's work). We encourage effort, willingness to learn from mistakes and lots of lots of practice.
