Senior Educator

Hello Families my name is Jessica and I am the Senior Educator in the Koalas Room. Having worked in this industry for over 12 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.

Assistant Educator

Hi my name is Lisa Lale.

I have been in childcare for the most part since 2007 and have never felt such care and trust by all who work here at Noah's Ark. I have been in various other fields of work but came back to childcare feeling its where im meant to be. Feeling privileged looking after your children.

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.
