Babes Principal and Teacher

I have been working at EcoKids for 4 years. I absolutely love being the Principal and a teacher at EcoBabes. I enjoy establishing a deep love and respect for the families who cross my path. My main focus at our Babes House is to create a caring environment where my babies can thrive and grow and reach their milestones.

When I’m not in the classroom enriching little minds I enjoy, sewing, reading, crafting and being creative.

Playful Pups Teacher

I’ve been teaching and in the education game for over 20 years which has included owning my own business and patenting my own educational game. I have a huge passion for young learners and couldn’t see myself in any other profession. I truly believe teaching is a calling not just a job.  Favourite quote: “The best teachers are those who show you where to look but not what to see.”

FUN FACT: I share my birthday with my dad and sister.

Curious Crew Teacher

Hi I am Teacher Jules. Ever since I was a little girl I have loved playing ‘the teacher’ or ‘the mommy’. As I grew older I still had a love for little children. I loved their sense of imagination and zest for life. I knew then I wanted to work with kids one day. To see their growth and keenness to learn is so rewarding. Little people have a way of making you look at life differently. I feel so privileged to work with them everyday 😊
