Our team of teachers is headed up by Jenny Finlay who has many years of experience teaching young children in Community Kindergartens. 2020 is Jenny’s 24th year as Director of Borilla Kindy.
Jenny has a Diploma of Teaching (Early Childhood), a Graduate Diploma of Education (Early Childhood) and a Masters in Education (majoring in guidance and counselling). Jenny also presents workshops for early childhood teachers and educators.
Borilla Kindy is fortunate to have a Speech Therapist, Carmen Connolly on staff. Carmen has a Bachelor of Speech Pathology (First Class Honours) and is a Certified Practicing Speech Pathology Australia Member, who participates in the Professional Self-Regulation Program. Carmen has worked for Education Queensland and has experience providing Speech Pathology within the context of early childhood education.
Carmen is dedicated to providing a high quality service and has a passion for early intervention and improving outcomes for children as they transition into their formal schooling.
I love that the kindy encourages child lead imaginative play. The staff are amazing and for my son to be asking every day of the week if it’s a kindy day indicates just how much of a wonderful place it is.
We are very happy with the Borilla Kindy. My daughter loves going to Kindy & is well cared for in the after school program. I would highly recommend Borilla Kindy.
Having a child with special needs is stressful enough, and worrying how they will cope in a new environment with other children and limited understanding and verbal skills can be daunting but Borilla kindy have been a god send for my daughter and she has come ahead in leaps and bounds during her short time at kindy and loves to go which definitely reduces the stress as parents.
