An introduction to our Owner and Head Teacher:

Our Owner / Principal-Teacher – Teacher Jess:

Growing up in a teaching environment with her mother being a preschool teacher, becoming a teacher herself was a natural progression. Jess has been involved in Seedlings and Flowers since its inception in 2002 and considers the school to be one of her children.

After qualifying in teaching up to foundation phase, she then decided to add child psychology to her qualifications as well as studies in baby sign language, child nutrition, the fundamentals of reading as well as advanced first aid and qualifications in the power of play from babies to grade 1.

Jess prides herself on knowing every pupil and family in the school individually and overseas every aspect of the running of the school.

Jess is a very proud wife and mom herself to two beautiful little girls who are her pride and joy and understands the importance of exceptional child care and education for your little ones.

School should be a magical experience where children should be given the tools they need for life as well as a love for learning. Teacher Jess says her aim in her career is to be a teacher a child remembers and smiles.
