Julie Richards

Julie has a Diploma of Teaching Early Childhood from Charles Sturt University and is registered with the Victorian Institute of Teaching (VIT). Julie has over 20 years of experience. She also has a Certificate in Parent Education Leadership Training from Swinburne University of Melbourne.

Julie is excited to be joining the team at Wilson Street Kindergarten as an Early Childhood Teacher. She believes in the importance of developing a trusting, respectful partnership with families to support a sense of belonging consistent between kindergarten and home.

A philosophy incorporating a ‘play base curriculum, where the environment provides many opportunities for children to learn, develop decision making and problem solving skills, build resilience, and learn skills and strategies to regulate emotions, is of most importance to Julie.
