Meet Elisa: Director of St Nicholas Early Education Lochinvar
Elisa Edmonds, the Centre Director at St Nicholas Early Education Lochinvar, has more than eight years of experience in early childhood education so she brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the St Nick’s team.
“It was an exciting process watching St Nicholas being built,” Elisa said. “We are so lucky to have such challenging, diverse and stimulating indoor and outdoor environments for our children to explore and investigate.”
A self-described “people person”, Elisa’s favourite part of opening St Nick’s brand-new early education centre in Lochinvar was getting to know families from the local area: “I love meeting people, I love showing them around,” she said.
With a lengthy and diverse background in early education under her belt, Elisa traces her love of early education back to the birth of her own three children.
“I discovered my passion for early education after having three sons and have never looked back,” she said.
Since having her children, Elisa has worked in early education for approximately eight years over three different services. She also worked as a teacher in primary schools, which she said gave her a broader perspective of children’s education.
