Vanessa (Ness) Bryant

Educator

The things that nurture my happiness -my children, natural spaces (especially the ocean), animals and creative education. I am passionate in advocating for the right that all children experience a joyful holistic education.
I received my Diploma of Children Services through ECTRAC,QLD and I am currently studying my Bachelor of Education through Southern Cross University.
My own two children and myself blossomed from being a part of the Mount Warning Preschool community. I believe this preschool to be the personification of what the Early Years Learning Framework is in practice.
I love the sense of community and joy at this preschool and now being and educator here - I am ecstatic!
