Our People

Testimonials

More Than A Kinder

‘Clyde Street Kindergarten is more than a kinder;  it’s a caring, supportive community which has welcomed our whole family with open arms’

Georgia Jahnke

Parent

Engaging Indoor Space

‘Don’t be deceived by the humble facade! The engaging indoor space and the vast, lush outdoor space make CSK one of Thornbury’s best kept secrets.’

Cat Colaci

Parent

Learning through play

‘As an Early Childhood Teacher my goal is to be a facilitator of activating each child’s own natural desire to learn using play to achieve their full potential.’

Maria Callegari

Director & Educational Leader

Teachers

Maria Callegari
Director / Educational Leader and Green group teacher

Maria joined Clyde Street Kindergarten in 2005 and in recognition of her wide ranging experience, and her career of over thirty years in Early Childhood Education, became our Director and Educational leader in 2008.

Ruiqi Guan
Red and Blue Group Teacher
Carmela Fiore
Red and Green Group Educator

Our much loved educator for both of our four year old groups, Carmela Fiore joined Clyde Street Kindergarten in 2005 (the same year as Maria Callegari so it’s fair to say that together they have had quite an impact on the CSK community).

Lori Di Fabio
Blue Group Educator

Everyone has the same complaint about Lori – ‘we just don’t get to see her enough!’ As the educator for Blue Group (our three year olds) Lori only has five teaching hours with us a week, however that doesn’t mean her impact in the Clyde Street Kindergarten community is any less.
