Hi! My name is Cassie and I have been with KingKids for 10 years now. Growing up, I was always the older cousin that looked after the younger ones at family gatherings; I even used to play 'teachers' and run my own pretend schools & childcares based off my own experiences growing up. Working with KingKids brings me so much joy, especially creating bonds with the children, their families (and their furry friends whenever they come for a visit out the front of the centre). One thing I am proud of is living up to the Kingkids value of 'fun' and I try to make that a priority when working with my team; always laughing and celebrating the uniqueness of each person I get the pleasure of working with. I have two cats named Storm and Rain, they are my world and my go to karaoke song would be “Iris” - The Goo Goo Dolls

Hi, I’m Tammy,

Working as an Early Childhood Educator is one of the greatest joys in my life. I believe the early years of a child’s life, is when they grow and learn the most. Being a part of their development and learning is so exciting!

Every day at our Hallam kindergarten is different, seeing their curiosity of the world around them as they develop their own independence and navigating their way through! Every day I get to see the world through their eyes, how amazing life can be!
