Before developing Bond University’s Bachelor of Children’s Services’ programme, Caroline enjoyed a long and varied career working in a wide range of Children’s Services’ care and teaching situations starting as a pre-school teacher in ACT progressing to advisory and consultancy roles with regional and government education authorities. Her experience encompasses all aspects of early childhood learning from classroom teaching to managing services and from educating future teachers to consulting and developing professional development programmes. She continues to consult for a range of non-government community-based and corporate organisations, local state and the Commonwealth government offering early childhood educators a wealth of real world knowledge combined with high level qualifications and superior teaching skills.
Whilst at Bond University, Caroline won the first academic award for her work in teaching students who now work in Children’s Services world-wide.
Since July 2012 Caroline exclusively devotes her time and experience working extensively with Children’s Services throughout Australia developing customised professional development programmes for early childhood educators. Feedback indicates the success of the ‘wonderful innovative and practical ideas that she demonstrates during the programmes’.
