Jacinta Kaesler

Pre School
Early Childhood Teacher

I am a recently Graduated ECT as of 2018 and during that time I had the privileged to undergo my placement at Islamic College and in 2019 taught English in Thailand. These experiences allowed me to appreciate, accept and love all types of cultures that are different from my own. 

Creating loving, supporting and strong relationships with all children, families and staff is important to me as it helps strengthen the child's growth and development as well as a strong community within the centre.
