Wombats Room Staff


Senior Educator

Hi I’m Joanne I have worked at Noah’s Ark since March 2015 as a casual educator where I fill in for the permanent staff. I have recently been employed as the new senior educator for the Wmbats rooms. I love working with young children and watching them grow and develop. It is a pleasure to be part of the wonderful team here at Noah's Ark.

I have worked in education for 25 years in a variety of settings and positions including teaching kindergarten for several years and as a preschool teacher in childcare for over 15 years.

I have a Diploma of Teaching (infants/primary) and a Bachelor of Education (Early Childhood)


My family includes my husband of 25 years and our 2 furry children our dog Charlie and our cat Tammy. I enjoy spending time with family and friends, cooking, reading especially fantasy and historical romance, going to the beach and walking my dog at the park.

Hello my name is Kaori. I have a Diploma of Early Childhood of Education and Care and have been working at Noah's Ark for the past three years.
