Possums Nursery Staff


Senior Educator


Hi my name is Maddy and I am the Senior Educator in the Possums room. I have been a part of the Noah’s Ark family since September 2015. I currently hold a Diploma of Early Childhood but wish to do further study and become and Early Childhood Teacher.


Working the babies always amazes me watching them grow and develop, especially in the first year of their life. I have a very strong belief in the importance of secure attachments with babies and working with families to ensure their child’s needs and strengths are met at all times.

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.

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?!
