Koalas Room Staff


Senior Educator

Hello Families my name is Jessica and I am the new Room Leader of the Sugar Gliders team. Having worked in this industry for over 10 years I have been in many roles throughout my career, ranging from room assistant, room leader, educational leader, Assistant Director and Director.

Having the privilege to work with a range of age groups and different team environments it has enabled me to gain a plethora of knowledge and experience which I hope to impart to my team and to you and your children. I value inclusion of all children, cultures an abilities as well as working in partnership with families and communities.

Hello my name is Anna,

I am one of the Senior Educators in the Possums room. This is my 3rd year at Noahs Ark. I first started as a casual for Noahs Ark in 2014. I am currently studying my diploma and my bachelors in education (Birth – Year 6) at the University of Canberra. I’m also very interested in studying paramedicine later on.  The reason I enjoy working with children is because I get to watch them learn, grow and develop.

Hi my name is Alexander Rees and i have my certificate lll in Childcare. This year i am studying my Diploma.

I have been waiting a long time to be in childcare, as of three years ago l had not long left school and wasn't sure what l wanted to do.

 I love music, singing, dancing and playing sport. I'm a huge cronulla Sharks supporter and massively dislikes spiders.

Finally having the job of my dreams has helped put everything in perspective. I love coming to work everyday, helping children grow and learn and seeing new things they like.

I love being a Childcare Educator as it brings me lots of happiness everday. I cant see myself doing anything esle and l wouldnt want to change this opportunity for the world.

Hi my name is Lisa.

I have been in childcare for the most part of since 2007 and have never felt such care and trust by the educators as l do here at Noah's Ark.

I completed my Cert lll in 2015 through 2-3 night classes per week as l worked during the day. 

I have lived in canberra since 1998 with my husband and now two grown sons. I love being with children and having a positive impact on all aspects of their development.
