Introducing our Support Team

At MOCCA we have a special group of early childhood professionals who work across many age groups. Their skill set and team approach to their work enables them to support their entire centre. Without these individuals we would not be able to provide such a high level of education and care for our children and families.

Jo – Early Childhood Educator

I have been working in Early Education and Care since 2011. During my time as an educator, I have really enjoyed working with children and families to develop trusting relationships. I believe our centre should be an extension of the home where children feel they can be themselves by learning through play, building positive relationships, and sharing their own knowledge. I feel all children are capable and competent and I am passionate about developing children’s agency through everyday flows and play.

Emily – Early Childhood Educator

Hello, I have been working at MOCCA since 2015 and have my Certificate III in Early Childhood Education and Care with 9 years experience working with children from birth to school age. I am looking at achieving and specialising with children with additional needs and hope to one day become a teacher.
I am most passionate about creating learning spaces that are inclusive and build on children’s interests.

Hua – Early Childhood Educator

Hua has been an integral part of the MOCCA team for more than a year and during this time Hua has completed a Certificate III in Early Childhood Education and Care. Hua’s gentle nature and natural rapport with young children has seen her develop strong trusting relationships with children from nursery through to school age. In her interactions with children it is evident that she values children’s agency and she is attuned to the unique communications and cues of each child.

Janet – Early Childhood Educator

I am the most recent member of the MOCCA team and having recently commenced by final professional placements as part of the Diploma in Early Childhood Education and Care I was fortunate to have been offered a position at the centre. I have three children, two of which are school age. My heart is that all children are heard and know that they are important to the people around them.  I aim to support children in sharing their strengths, kindness, and knowledge with others.
