I am blessed to be a mother to Imogen 8 and Cooper 7, who keep me extremely time efficient! Working with children has always been my passion; I love being a part of a child’s learning journey and share the excitement of viewing the world through their eyes. I strive to create enriched and natural learning environments for children, giving them the best opportunities to help shape who they are and who they’ll become.
Holding a Bachelor of Human Service; child and family studies with a major in Human Resource Management and a Certificate IV in Workplace Training and Assessment I have the education and experience needed to provide the highest quality of care and education to the children and families who attend Coomera Clubhouse 1 & 2.
Nominated Supervisor / Director, Centre 1
My name is Emma Newman I have worked in childcare for almost 6years and hold a Diploma in Children’s Services. I started at centre one when it opened in 2011 and love being apart of the Coomera Clubhouse family.
Working with children has always been my passion and what I enjoy most about working with children is providing a safe, happy and stimulating environment. I strive to offer experiences where children are successful, capable and confident learners, also a place where children are comfortable and confident to engage in learning relationships with their educators and peers. I will endeavour to help them understand they have the right to belong, be and become in their learning journey here at Coomera Clubhouse.
I am the Educational leader for CCH1; the responsibilities of the Educational Leader are to guide and lead the team in areas of programming, observation and reflection. I meet with Educators on a weekly basis where we discuss ideas and strategies to enhance our curriculum and centre events.
Kindergarten Teacher, Centre 1
My Name is Lindsay Buck and I’m the kindergarten teacher in the Kindergarten room. I am a Queensland registered teacher with a Bachelor of Science with qualified teacher’s status in primary and early childhood.
My family and I moved to Australia in August 2013 from the UK to be with my brother and his family. The beautiful weather and the outdoor life has really given us a new lifestyle that we love. I have two beautiful children, Grace 14 and James 9 who have settled really well into their new life.
Back in the UK, I worked in a large Independent school with children from the age of 2 to 18. I taught Preparatory Year for 10 years and Grade 1 for 6 years, both of which I loved equally however I needed a new challenge! Moving to Australia gave me that challenge and I really wanted to use my experience in another area of teaching. Teaching the Kindergarten has allowed me to use all my knowledge, ideas and skills with younger children and has certainly taught me a few new things too!
I am privileged to work with a great team in the Kindergarten room and we have created a quality kindergarten program based on children’s interests, ideas and intentions, and parent, family and community priorities and contexts.
Kindergarten Teacher & Educational Leader, Centre 2
My name is Kelly Gow and I am the Kindergarten teacher in the Galah’s room (4-5yr olds) at Coomera Clubhouse centre 2. I have been in the childcare industry since 2006 and I have a Bachelor of Education Primary degree as well as an early childhood bridging certificate.
Since entering into early childhood education, my passion for working with, teaching and fostering children’s development has increased immensely. Educating children has always been my passion and therefore I always endeavour to develop a child centred learning environment whilst providing children with hands on, purposeful, meaningful and enjoyable experiences.
