Play & Learn Staff

Zoe

Play & Learn facilitator

I have been a part of the Noah’s Ark community since 2005. First attending Play and Learn as a parent with my eldest son who also went on to Playschool and then with my youngest child. Mt youngest also enjoyed the Play and Learn program and went on to be a part of the “Joeys” class in the newly launched (2011) Daycare program on offer at Noah’s Ark, Rivett.

I was delighted to be offered the position of Play and Learn facilitator in 2010 and have recently started assisting in the Playschool program. Both day programs offer children the chance to learn and explore their environment, as well as engage in classroom style guided lessons. This year I have introduced a weekly theme and encouraged children to express the chosen theme through song, arts and crafts, activities and games.

I have a passion for working with children and their carers, believing that learning through play can enhance a child’s early development and overall education outcomes. Play and Learn offers the opportunity not just for children but for their carers to come together and socialise.

I have been a part of the local Weston Creek community since moving here in 2005 participating in local sports and supporting my husband and sons in local rugby and cricket competitions. I am an active parent involved with Duffy Primary School and I am currently participating in Duffy’s guided reading programs two days a week, assisting children with their literacy skills and development.
