My name is Hannah and I have been a part of the dedicated HCCC team since 2012. I have 15 years experience working in Early Childhood education and hold a Bachelor of Education (Early Childhood Teaching) and a Diploma in Children’s Services.

I strongly believe that each child’s family is their first and most influential teacher, and I’m honoured to fill this role for my own three children.

I value childhood as a time for hands-on discovery and experimentation, where children can learn about themselves and the world through play. I am passionate about providing natural, collaborative and warm environments where children feel comfortable to be themselves.

I believe genuine, reciprocal relationships are crucial in supporting children’s sense of belonging, allowing them to feel confident to explore, create and learn from those around them. Each day I feel honoured to learn alongside the children at HCCC.

“Stand aside for a while and leave room for learning, observe carefully what children do, and then, if you have understood well, perhaps teaching will be different from before.” – Loris Malaguzzi.
