Meet the Lyrebird Preschool educators and carers
We have a loyal, dedicated team of educators and support staff here at Lyrebird Preschool. Many have been with us for years while others are gaining valuable work-experience or qualifications from training facilities to take up a future in Early Childhood Education.
Our average 1:6 educator to children ratio is well-above the norm (or requirement) for pre-school facilities. We assign children into ‘home rooms’ so they know where they go each day: Possum Room and Bilby Room have assigned staff members to manage the room, outdoor activities, snack times and quiet times.
We know what a difference one-on-one care can make.
Every child is important. Personal interaction is essential. It all means every learning activity or playtime is extra special at Lyrebird –and our team helps make it happen.
