Welcome to the Port Stephens Campus
At Narnia Port Stephens we are looking forward to partnering with every family to provide your child with the best start in Early Education and Care.
At Narnia we place Christ as the core of everything we do and experience great joy as we journey together with each child.
We follow the Early Years Learning Framework and we strive to provide environments both indoors and out that allow children to be individual learners; to experience joy, wonder and fun in all they do; to be immersed with new ideas and discovery; to follow their interests; to be the very best they can be; and to learn more about who they are as created by a loving God.
The Centre’s proximity to St Philips Christian College Junior School benefits the Transition to School program by allowing easier access to the Junior School facilities.
Children preparing for school become very familiar with the school environment before they begin Kindergarten with regular lessons and visits as part of the program.
We can’t wait to meet and get to know your children and watch their journey of discovering all that God has created them to be.

Meet Our Staff
Narnia staff are educated and experienced in Early Childhood education. We follow the Early Years Learning Framework to provide developmentally appropriate activities which are stimulating, challenging and creative and which cater for individual needs and interests. We provide flexible programs which promote self-discovery, spontaneous learning, independence and a positive self-esteem.
Our greatest aim is for all children to feel safe and secure in a loving Christian environment. This is the greatest entry point for learning.
With over 20 years experience in Early Childhood and Primary school teaching I am now blessed to be the Director at Narnia Port Stephens. This position I value greatly and feel truly blessed to be able to have such a positive influence on children’s lives. I believe quality Christian education and care is vitally important.
Building respectful relationships with children and families is something I hold very close to my heart. Through intentional teaching methods, along with freedom to develop self. Children are encouraged to have a sense of wonder, to be curious learners and to have a love of learning through positive interactions and role modelling.
I look forward to meeting you and showing you around the glorious grounds here at Port Stephens.
I have a Bachelor of education and over 10 years experience as an Early Childhood Teacher. With a passion to teach in holistic ways I adopt various approaches to enhance children’s learning.
I play guitar, ukulele and sing with children to engage, teach and promote children’s emotional and physical wellbeing. I enjoy many creative pursuits and love living in Port Stephens with my husband and 3 sons.
My name is Dyan Brown. I have my Certificate III (2013) and Diploma (2016) in Early Childhood Education. I have been working with children since I finished my HSC in 2012 and have thoroughly enjoyed every moment.
I believe each child has their own unique strengths and ways in which they learn and I love to help encourage their own individualism and grow as a person.
I feel absolutely honoured to be part of the team at Narnia. I am qualified with a Diploma in Early Childhood Education and have been working in the industry since 2017.
I love God and I love caring for his little ones. I know that God has a beautiful plan for each child and my goal is to create a safe, nurturing environment and draw out their strengths and passions whilst helping them grow in their God given abilities.
I am so exited to be a part of the Narnia team. There is such beautiful presence of God and atmosphere like no other here at Narnia
I believe children are the future of this nation and I am passionate about the nurture and care of children while teaching them to be their own individual creative self and to help foster their independence while they gain valuable life skills.
I am a mother to 5 children who have all attended St Philip’s Port Stephens.
I am thrilled to be working with the Narnia team as the Admin Assistant and look forward to supporting our wonderful families and amazing staff.
I enjoy learning new things and also love camping, listening to music and spending time with my family. I am currently completing my Certificate 3 in Early Childcare Education.
