How long have you been working in early learning education?

I have been passionately teaching and mentoring within the Early Childhood  Education sector for close to ten years. Prior to this, I was a school teacher and coordinator for fifteen years..


What are you most excited about in your role?

Learning is a continuous journey!  Being appointed to the role of Kindergarten Teacher I am most looking forward to providing opportunities to each child to grow and learn from each other.

Understanding and valuing all cultures and point of view makes for an inclusive learning environment where all children feel valued and important


What are 5 words your friends would use to describe you: 

Resolute, consistent, persistent, innovative and persuasive.


How does "Early Learning" support families to thrive

Early Learning can help families in broadening their children’s perspectives from a young age; acknowledging each child’s unique potential and supporting them the best way they can through collaboration and trust.


Lalanie invites your family to visit our Tarneit centre for a guided tour. A member of our team will welcome you, answer your questions, and guide you through our indoor and outdoor spaces.
