Laura Walker

Hi, I am Laura! I have the immense privilege of being the Program Manager of the Gowrie Kelso Outside School Hours Care centre. I am a passionate and enthusiastic educator who has worked with children for the last 13 years.

I strongly believe in building respectful and trusting relationship with children and their families, utilising these as valuable tools for enhancing children’s growth and discovery as little people navigating a big world.

Children are strong, capable, and inquisitive of their own learning, engaging with them through interest-based play and exploration of the environment are key to my values. I love being an educator, inspiring wonder, curiosity, happiness and learning alongside them as I constantly develop my education of providing the best educational experiences for the children of today.
