Welcome to the Waratah Campus
Here at Narnia we believe in partnering with each family to provide their child with the best start in Early Education and Care. We place Christ as the core of everything we do and experience great joy as we journey together with each child. Our experienced and dedicated team are all active Christians in their local church community.
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.
At Narnia Waratah we are passionate about getting to know each child enrolled and we value building positive relationships with both the child and the family. Our team are available to discuss concerns or to hear new ideas. Together we can build a community that is unique to Narnia and encourages everyone to do great things.

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.
I have been teaching in Early Childhood Education since 1994 and I still love each and every day. I am passionate about providing an environment where each child feels valued, is able to develop to their full potential, and where each child’s voice is heard. I view children as capable individuals who can achieve great things. My passion for inclusion and supporting families on the journey of discovery through Early Childhood education resulted in my completion of my Graduate Diploma of Special Education in 1999. I feel blessed to be in a role where I can connect with families, educators and children to make a real difference.
I first experienced the amazing Narnia as a parent, when both my children attended, I loved how they were nurtured and cared for by the Narnia team. With both my boys now attending St Philips I feel lucky to join the Narnia family myself.
I believe each child is a gift and it is such a privilege to build relationships with each child and their families and to watch the incredible growth as these little people develop skills and personalities that will see them became amazing adults.

I have a genuine respect for children and I value the early years as a time for imagination, creativity, awe and wonder. I am grateful for the opportunity to share God’s love with children and encourage them to find their unique, God-given gifts. I believe that parents are their child’s most important teachers and I look forward to working in partnership with families to provide a happy, safe and inspiring learning environment for children to thrive in all areas of their development.
I have been working as an Early Childhood Educator since 2014 and have developed a strong passion for early years education. I relish opportunities to witness children’s growth, learning and self-discovery as they engage with their environments and peers. I attend Goodlife Church Toronto and my primary focus within my role is for children to independently discover and recognise their unique God-given skillsets, dispositions and abilities, and above all else, that they are valuable in the eyes of God.
