I bring to Campus Kindergarten a wide range of experiences in the field of early childhood education and care ranging from working as a kindergarten teacher, a prep teacher, the head of key stage one (early years UK) and the early years advisor for the Arts (ACARA). I was a  lecturer in the school of early childhood (QUT) I had the enviable position of working with QUT students, parents and children while co-ordinating  the Early Childhood Festival, Out of the Box.  I also had input into the Early Years Learning Framework and provided professional development for early years teachers.   These experiences all have one common element, a passion for working with young children, listening to their voices, and working with creative educators.  I am thrilled to be a part of this incredibly special place know as Campus Kindergarten. Please come and share ideas with me, I am always open to taking on a challenge and look forward to working with you and your children.

Qualification: Master of Philosophy (Education), Bachelor of Education (EC), Blue Card, FA, CPR, Asthma and Anaphylaxis

Hi, my name is Yvonne and I graduated from QUT with a Bachelor of Education in Early Childhood. Prior to that, my background has always been working with children where I have gained experiences in different schools and kindergartens both internationally and locally. Originally from Malaysia, I worked as a kindergarten teacher for several years before moving on to London to work also as a pre-school teacher. I finally arrived in Australia where I find myself again teaching in a kindergarten. Experience has taught me that children have a universal innate nature of inquisitiveness and wonder. It is for this very reason that I continue to want to work and learn alongside children of Campus Kindergarten.  In 2019 I gained a Masters in Philosophy from QUT.
