Staff Spotlight: Kangaroos Educational Leader – Kylie

Meet Kylie, she is the Kangaroo’s Educational Leader

Tell us about your career background:

I have come from a creative fashion industry where I owned my own fashion label for ten years, as I worked along a retail store called Dangerfield. In between my fashion role I also ran events- fashion parades and in store launch parties. This lead me to work as a event planner for a year before making a huge career change into Early Childhood. I have always loved children and being creative which I though go hand in hand into early childhood

What do you love about your role?
Learning from the children and seeing them grow. Each child has their own personality which develops over time, I feel honored to be part of their child development. I love being creative with them and extending their learning, whether it is spontaneous, intentional, or child-centered. Seeing the children happy makes my day as I plan meaningful and fun interactive activities for them to play and learn from.


Tell us about your room:
My room is inviting and open as the children are free to choose the play area they like. I also offer a structured learning with planned routines and school readiness. I believe that each child learns differently, which is why I provide various learning areas where the child can be strategic and constructive thinkers, creative learners, imaginative players, explorers and social beings.

What do you like to do for fun?

I enjoy spending time with my husband, going to see live music, movies, going out for dinner or cooking at home. I especially enjoy travelling around the world and fashion.
