Sara – Centre Director
Ballykin Rose Bay

I have worked in Early Childhood Education since 2009. I studied my Bachelor of Education (Early Childhood) at Sydney University and went on to further my studies completing a Certificate IV in Assessment and Training, and also an Executive General Manager Program at Melbourne Business School. I am passionate about creating a strong, supported and informed team who will inspire, co-construct and guide children to be capable, independent and active learners. My personal teaching philosophy is ‘the art of teaching, is the art of assisting the discovery'.

Beatriz – Educational Leader
Ballykin Rose Bay

I am a passionate educator with over 25 years experience. I started my career as a primary and secondary school teacher in Brazil. There I completed my studies (Bachelor’s in Education and Master’s in Arts) and was lucky enough to have a varied and fulfilling range of experiences in the educational field. However, it was in Australia that I discovered the joys of working in Early childhood and never looked back. Since then, I have been sharing my love for nature and learning with children and educators.
