Joeys Room Staff


Early Childhood Teacher

Hi, my name is Danielle and I’m the Early Childhood Teacher in the Preschool room (Joey’s). I have been working with children since 2009 predominately in NSW preschools. I am currently doing graduate studies in psychology and have a special interest in child development and wellbeing. My teaching practices are guided by the National Quality Standards and the National Early Learning Years Framework for children aged 0-6.  I have an amazing team of educators in the Joeys Preschool who all offer unique skills and abilities which combine to facilitate the children’s learning, interest and development.


Senior Educator

Hello, my name is Brooke and I am an assistant educator in the joeys.

I’ve been working at Noah’s Ark for over a year now, but it feels like forever in the best way. I love the children, the families and the educators and I’m so grateful to come to work every day to a place where I truly enjoy what I do.

I am currently finishing my Diploma and hope to complete my Bachelor in Early Education in the next few years.

Being a Joey is the best thing I’ve ever been and I can’t wait to see where this adventure in childcare takes me. I have definitely found where I belong.




Assistant Educator

Hello, my name is Emily and I am an assistant educator in the Joey’s room. I have been working at Noah’s Ark Early Learning Centre for over one year now, I started in a casual position but now I’m a full time educator. I am currently studying my certificate III in Early Childhood Education and Care and in the future plan to study a Bachelor of Early Childhood Education and Primary School Education. Working in the early childhood education sector is such a rewarding and fulfilling job, I’m proud to say that I sincerely enjoy the job I have. 


Senior Educator

Hello my name is Melissa Nash.

I’ve been working in Early Childhood Industry for 20 years now and have experience with children birth to 5 years. In this time I have successfully completed my studies to an Advanced Diploma level.

Starting as an assistant educator many years ago and building upon my education I became a centre director. I enjoyed this role however being a mother as well I found I wanted a better balance between work and home. This is why I love my part time role here at Noah’s Ark covering Senior Educators for non-contact time.

Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my family, weekends away and keeping active outdoors. 


Senior Educator

Hi my name is Dani (Danielle),

I currently work part time in a senior educator role, covering Senior Educators when they are absence from the room. I have worked at Noah’s Ark since 2011 I various capacities, while most of the time was spent as the senior educator in the babies room.

I am currently in my 3rd year of a four year degree at uni, studying to be a nurse and paramedic.

My favourite part of working at Noah’s Ark is watching the children grow from babies to string, confident and inspired pre-schoolers ready to make their own footprints in the world.

Also, who doesn’t love playing and creating all day?!
