Joan Curtis, Stirling Kindergarten
Joan has been a friendly face at the Stirling Kindergarten for the past 23 years. She is now teaching the children of the previous generation who she taught when she first started at the kindergarten.
“The families in this area are very special. It’s a beautiful setting and I love being part of the children’s early learning years. It’s wonderful to help nurture their creativity and self esteem when they come here.”
Joan has two grown up daughters who went to Stirling Kindergarten when they were little – although before Joan was teaching there.
She now is a grandmother and enjoys the delight her own grandchildren show when she introduces them to activities that are similar to those the children she teaches experience. “It is just fascinating observing children and watching how their little minds learn new things.”
