Hi, my name is Sarah and I am the Room Leader of the 2-3’s room. I live in Picton with my husband Ryan, who is a primary school teacher and our two beautiful girls, Audrey and Adeline. I have lived in the Wollondilly area since birth and love the relaxed atmosphere country life has to offer. I have been an Early Childhood educator for 11 years now and hold my Diploma of Children’s Services. I plan to complete my Bachelor of Education (Early Childhood Education- Birth to Five years) over the next few years.

I absolutely LOVE my job! No two days are the same and sharing in the children’s delight at their achievements is so rewarding. As an educator I strongly believe that our role is to guide, support and foster each child’s learning and development in a holistic manner. Children’s learning is dynamic and complex; each and every child is unique and individual. It is not about highlighting what a child cannot do, but rather celebrating what they can do and using these emerging skills and interests as foundations for further learning.

When I’m not busy having fun at preschool I enjoy reading and creative writing, weekend walks and adventures and the occasional few hours of scrapbooking here and there! I have enjoyed every minute of my time with the team here at Thirlmere Pegasus EEC since we opened in 2008, meeting so many wonderful families and children along the way and I look forward to meeting many, many more!
