My journey began at Pelican over 25 years ago as a student on work placement. I was then fortunate
in securing a position as an Educator. Over the years, Pelican Preschool Shellharbour supported my
professional journey and I am now a very proud Early Childhood Teacher and the Centre’s Director.
At Pelican, you will experience a true sense of belonging as we take a collaborative and holistic
approach to education and care. We focus on building respectful, meaningful relationships between
Educators, children and families. Many life-long friendships are also created here and continue well
after their time at Pelican.
My fellow Educators and I are very proud and privileged to be able to work as a team with families, and to be able to support the children’s learning and development, and participating in building the foundations of their life-long success.
