ANNA DAMAYANTI

Director, ECT and Educational Leader

As a concert pianist, Anna has been performing and teaching from a young age. After having her children, Anna has given a lot of attention to the education of babies through languages, music and art. She is currently completing her Bachelor of Early Childhood, and is using her past experience in Europe and Asia to create a unique music education program for preschoolers. She has been able to focus on language/literacy, fundamental gross and fine motor skill development in young children through preschooler classes she runs in her music school: Appassionato Music Academy, and is keen to bring the same experience to the children in Growing Maestros.

OUR EDUCATORS

NATALIE

Certificate III and completing Diploma in ECE

Providing a fun, safe and secure learning and play environment for children to grow in is what I strive to do ! Entering the childcare field at a young age has allowed me to gain knowledge and experience to ensure all children’s needs are met in a childcare setting. I have had the privilege to care for all ages and love to do so. I come from a Macedonian background and can speak the language. I respect and encourage diversity, uniqueness and individual interests and incorporate this into my learning experiences with children as well as using the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF) to provide quality learning.

CLAUDIA

Certificate III in ECE

It has always been my dream to work as a Child Care Educator. I am an individual who has undergone Certificate III of an Early Childhood Educator. I am very enthusiastic and I have a great amount of passion and care for children. I respect each child’s uniqueness and beliefs. I am bilingual in English and Mandarin. In addition to my Early Childhood Education and Care qualifications, I have a positive can-do attitude. I understand that an Early Childhood Educator plays an important part in the development of children, as I did with my now grown-up two children. I will help children build a foundation of mental, physical and social skills for a happy life.
