Barb De Looze

My name is Barb De Looze. I have recently joined the team at Emmanuel Kindergarten. I completed my Certificate 3 in Early Childhood Education and Care at Bestchance in 2014 and did part of my placement here. 

The teachers and educators at Emmanuel are very friendly and welcoming and very committed to the best interests of the children and their families, and I am proud to be part of it.

We love Barb’s friendly and gentle nature, and so do the children. We also love her sewing skills!

I believe that the early years are very important to development of children, they need to feel safe, secure and loved to thrive and learn and have a sense of belonging and identity. They need to be nurtured as well as encouraged to try new things.

Children learn best while having fun through both intentional and spontaneous play and a range of experiences and activities.

I am married with two children, a boy Sam aged 16 and a girl Rebecca aged 14, both at high school. I thoroughly enjoyed their kinder years as they did, and hope that families will have happy memories of Emmanuel Kinder.
