Four Year Old Team

Joan Prickett

Welcome to Indra!  My name is Joan, and I get so much joy from teaching.  Singing songs in a group, and reading stories – to one, a few or the whole group!  Their reactions are new every time.

Creating a learning environment in which all the children can actively explore and enjoy learning is stimulating and fun.  I am always on the lookout for ways to engage the children in active learning and creating possibilities for shared experiences.

I hold a Bachelor of Early Childhood Studies with Honours, a Diploma of Teaching in Early Childhood, and since joining Indra Pre-school in 2005, I have been awarded Exemplary status from an external Validation process.

I have been working in early childhood education for a couple of decades, and I take a lot of pride in knowing that I make a difference to the lives of young children and their families. It is great, every day at kindergarten, to know that I am part of a whole team working together to create a positive learning environment for the children: the possibilities are limitless!

One of my favourite proverbs is:
If you are thinking a year ahead, plant a seed.
If you are thinking a decade ahead, plant a tree.
If you are thinking a century ahead, educate the people.
