Our Team


My husband and I are blessed with 3 children of our own who have completely enhanced our lives. So, the opportunity to work with you and your precious children is something I don’t take lightly.

My love for children led me on an everchanging journey in children’s education. It all began in 1998, with a Degree in Teaching Primary School Education. I believe my passion for surviving this ever-changing education path has been the ability to move with the educational changes and not to remain stagnant.

Over the years I was exposed and challenged by the diversity of learning needs and accepted that every child learns at their own pace and needs a teacher as a facilitator to enhance individual learning needs.

I’ve worked directly with children from an ESL and NESB as well as children who require special needs education programs and also became a Reading Recovery teacher. This led me to learning environments embeded in literacy and saw other domains of education to not be given as much priority.

So I decided that … I STEAM AHEAD


My name is Hannah I have been working in childcare for just over 4 years. I’ve worked in long day care and preschool and it’s always been a passion of mine.  I believe nothing is more rewarding than watching children develop new skills and become more and more confident each day.  I am looking forward to becoming part of the I STEAM Ahead team.


I am 26 years old and originally from Sweden. I moved to Sydney 3 years ago. My ideal job has always been working with children. I have 5 years of experience working in childcare in Sweden and Norway. I am currently studying a diploma in childcare.

I am currently studying early childhood teaching for children aged 0-12 at Western Sydney university. My course enables me to gain an in depth understanding of how exactly to nurture, strengthen and enhance the developing brains of children. My passion is to do exactly that and ensure children are learning the fundamentals for their growing brains all while having fun at the same time! Being apart of the ISTEAM ahead team is exciting because they share the same values for teaching and caring for children as I do.


Hi my name is Celeste, I am currently studying early childhood teaching at Macquarie university, in addition to many other experiences working with children. My favourite part about my course is that it enables me to put everything I’m learning into action with the children at iSteam ahead. I understand the importance of learning through play as nurturing the child’s mind in their early years is a critical part of their growing. I’m extremely happy to be apart of the iSteam ahead team watching your children develop and grow in fundamental areas such as science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics.
