Our Lawnton Team
Miss KirstyNominated Supervisor
Kirsty began her journey at Mother Duck Kallangur in 2014, when looking for a centre for her two youngest children that she felt would be supportive of their individual needs. Kirsty has a strong passion for Educational Program and Practice and believes that the lifelong skills that we teach children in the early years, will build resilience, problem-solving and critical thinking, in a world of continuous change.
Being recognised for her ability to collaborate with educators and provide curriculum direction and guidance, in 2018 she became the Educational Leader for both of the Kallangur services.
After proving herself as a successful leader during her time at Kallangur, Kirsty was offered the role of Nominated Supervisor at our Lawnton service in 2021 and has since been enjoying her time supporting the team, children and families and sharing her enthusiasm and extensive knowledge of child development.
