Meet the Director:

Marta Lisiewicz

Welcome to Hearts & Minds Early Learning McKellar, my name is Marta and I am the Centre Director for this beautiful new service.

I have worked in Early Childhood Education & Care for the past 13 years. For the last 10 years, I have been a Centre Director, which I love.  I am striving to create a community in Hearts & Minds McKellar that brings us together so we can learn from each other, support each other and rely on each other while we are educating our children. Let us be a part of your village.

I believe that our children are competent and capable learners.  Each child has the natural ability to question, interpret and understand the world around them.

I look forward to meeting you all.

Meet the Team:

Dency Patel

Welcome to Hearts & Minds Early Learning, my name is Dency and I am appointed as Service Administrator/2IC. I have a diploma in Early Childhood and Education and have worked in this sector for the past 9 years. I started my work as an educator and over the years have progressed to being an Assistant Director. 

Early learning years for a child are very crucial, and no child is the same! I always strive to help children learn through play and their own interests. I have a passion to work with young children, support them through their needs, see them growing and reaching their milestones. I strongly believe that nature is one of the important factors affecting a child’s early years and so I love spending time outdoors with children. 

When I am not at work, I enjoy spending time with my family, Reading books and painting. 

I look forward seeing different families and children at our service.
