Mrs Olivia-Rose Pepper
Bachelor of Education (Early Childhood)
I am proudly the Director/teacher of Howlong Preschool. I have 15 years experience as a Director/teacher of community based not-for profit preschools. I particularly enjoy working with my staff to ensure that the operation of the business is both successful and is always developing to ensure that children, families and staff all work together for the best interests of our children.
I grew up in a large family surrounded by lots of children and naturally this is where my passion for working with children came from. I believe that children are our future and I love helping them develop and explore their limitations as they grow into strong independent people.
I am a strong advocate for providing high quality care and education for the inclusion of all children with varying backgrounds and abilities. I believe that children in early childhood learn best though play experiences and environments where choice, imagination and independence are promoted and encouraged.
I have a particular important motto and that is that “children are our future” and the Early Years Framework is a good way to cherish a child’s interests and expanding on them to allow them to be fine young children and eventually independent adults who have a sense of being, belonging and becoming.
