Meet our Early Childhood Teacher – Mirna Abdullah 

Epping Early Childhood Teacher - Kindergarten & PreschoolMy career in Early Childhood Education and Care started in 2018 where during this time I completed my Bachelor of Education (Primary & Early Childhood Education).

A favourite quote of mine by Rita Pierson is, “every child deserves a champion – an adult who will never give up on them, who understands the power of connection, and insists that they become the best that they can possibly be.” This is the role that we each play in a child’s life and where I plan to be there to expose children to unique learning experiences and most importantly inspire them.

“We are pleased to have our daughter attend this centre as they’ve been instrumental in developing her skills through their innovative curriculum that includes incursions, excursions and visits from singing professionals. The kids’ wellbeing are also being looked- after as they have regular GP and dental visits too. I also appreciate seeing updates of how my daughter’s day went via a mobile app not to mention their weekly newsletter that shows updates of the week that has been and plans for the following week.”
