After being in early childhood education for many years in various roles, privately and in the public sector, Kathryn felt it was it was timely to put her research, beliefs, and understandings of the learning environment for young children into practice! 2005 was the genesis of The Treehouse Private Kindergarten; a very special place for children to be nourished and inspired in their learning.
Kathryn has a Bachelor of Teaching and Learning, a Diploma in Teaching, and a Graduate Certificate in Management. She is an enthusiastic advocate for children.
Kathryn believes that a culture of aesthetic opportunities will nourish the minds of young children and encourage them to explore the world around them. She believes in an ethos of excellence, excellence in educators, excellence in the environment and in provision of beautiful resources. Children deserve excellence.
Kathryn has been married to Kelvin for over 35 years. They have three adult children, four grandchildren, and a miniature black schnauzer called Daphne.
