Hi. My name is Anna. I have been teaching at NBCP for 3 years and love seeing children excited about learning. It is great seeing the smile on their face when they realise they have achieved their goal or solved a problem. I enjoy singing, dancing, and performing in musical theatre, going surfing and spending time at church or with my family. I love working in a place where I can say the word ‘banana’ and have 5 children around me crack up laughing thinking I am the funniest person in the world.

ROSE

Bachelor of Teaching – Fully Registered

Hi. My name is Rose. I have lived on the North Shore all my life and have been at NBCP four years. Teaching has always been a passion of mine and I consider it a privilege to be part of children’s learning as they grow, develop and discover the incredible talents they have each been given. I taught middle school for 7 years and later was introduced to early childhood after I had children and haven’t looked back! I have two sons and when i’m not judging lego creations or playing hide and seek, I enjoy finding a cosy place by myself to read a book or work on a crossword.

For fun I like to potter in my garden.
