Alana Reed is the dedicated and passionate Centre Director of St Nicholas Early Education Newcastle West. Her journey in the field of early education began with a strong commitment to making a difference in children’s lives.
Alana’s educational background includes completing a Bachelor of Teaching (Primary/Early Childhood) at the University of Newcastle in 2015. Prior to pursuing her degree, Alana gained valuable experience in early education. She started as a Certificate III Trainee on the Central Coast and then continued her journey in Sydney and Newcastle.
Alana possesses a deep passion for helping children strive to meet their developmental goals. She is particularly dedicated to making a difference in the learning and education of children who require additional support. Her experience in early education in Sydney provided her with the opportunity to work with children from English as Second Language (ESL) families. This experience inspired Alana to learn various basic languages to better support the needs of these children.
For over four years, Alana has had the pleasure of working at St Nicholas Early Education Newcastle West. Many of the children she has nurtured and guided through their learning journeys started in the nursery room and have now reached kindergarten. Witnessing their growth and development has been a true highlight for Alana. Starting as their Teacher, then as the Assistant Director, and now as the Director, she has formed strong bonds with the children and their families, fostering a sense of continuity and support throughout their time at the centre.
Alana Reed’s dedication, experience and commitment to making a positive impact on children’s lives make her an exceptional leader at St Nicholas Early Education Newcastle West. Her passion for supporting children’s development and her ability to form meaningful connections with families contribute to the nurturing and enriching learning environment at the centre. Alana’s journey with the children, from their earliest days to their transition to school, exemplifies her unwavering commitment to their growth and wellbeing.
