Edel O’Loughlin

Bachelor of Education (Early Childhood and Primary)

My name is Edel O’Loughlin and I am so excited to be joining the Collaroy Plateau Community Kindergarten family. I grew up in Ireland in a big family of 7 and we also had a family-run bed and breakfast so it was a busy and fun household!

I completed a Diploma of Montessori Teaching before I decided to chase the sun and come to Australia to pursue a career in Early Childhood Education. I arrived in Sydney almost 10 years ago and have worked in long day care centres and preschools across both Sydney and Canberra. I returned to study in 2016 to further develop my knowledge and skills and completed my Bachelor of Education (Early Childhood and Primary) in 2019.

I recognise partnerships with families and communities as an integral part of my role as a teacher. I acknowledge families as children’s first teachers and I believe working in collaboration with each other ensures the best outcomes for children.

I love walking my dog, dining out, weekend trips exploring the wonderful Australian countryside, and listening to music in my spare time. I look forward to meeting you all soon and supporting your children’s learning and development.

Collaroy Plateau Community Kindergarten acknowledges that we are located on the land of the First Nations people, possibly the Gayamaygal clan. But because the people from this area were displaced and their culture hidden, their history has been lost.

We sincerely pay our respects to past, present and future elders and ancestors of the Gayamygal and continue to share our sorrow about such painful history and we pledge to stand together with respect and the common goal of protecting the land and all of her inhabitants.
