Merrybel is the Centre Pedagogista and has also been working as the Kindergarten Teacher at Browns Plains Kids Early Learning Centre since June 2013. She completed a Bachelor of Education at the Queensland University of Technology in 2010 and is also a member of the Queensland College of Teachers.
She is passionate about mentoring her team and ensuring the educators are confident in delivering a high quality program based on the Early Years Learning Framework, Queensland Kindergarten Learning Guidelines and inspired by the Reggio Emilia approach.
Merrybel strongly believes in providing children with an emergent curriculum that is play based and interest driven. She loves to see parent’s share ideas and tell her about their child’s interests as it allows her to integrate these ideas into the program and provide meaningful learning experiences for all children.
