Creator and Director
Fostering and nurturing emotional wellbeing in children.

Share project on:

Woodline Primary is a small school set on a 20-acre farm in the beautiful Geelong hinterland. We have created a nurturing environment where you are welcomed with respect, presence, connection and care. A safe learning space where you can be free to question and explore. A place to be who you really are.

Woodline Primary School came about from a conversation with one of my clients around the need to have safe learning environments and a schooling system that values emotional wellbeing, just as much as learning. After months of research and visiting many different schools and talking to various experts, we set out to make Woodline Primary a reality. Woodline has been created by a small team of experts who have all been pivotal in bringing this idea to fruition.

Woodline Primary is heavily influenced by Aware Parenting practices and our foundation always comes back to connection and listening. We had a wonderful founding year in 2021.

I’m the Director and Creator of the school and have written nearly every policy and worked with teachers to create a play-based learning environment that all leads towards children developing critical life skills and a deep love of learning and strong emotional literacy.

“This is the school I have been searching for, one that values learning as much as emotional understanding and development. I wish it was the school I had when I was a child.”
