We are fortunate to have dedicated and enthusiastic teachers, some of whom have been with our kindergarten for many years.


Carolyn Stewart
3yo & 4yo Teacher and Director

Carolyn has over 30 years’ experience working in early childhood education (7 years with St Augustine’s) and holds a Bachelor of Early Childhood Education (Honours) from the University of Melbourne

“All our activities are designed to build new social and developmental skills through play – block building, for example, encourages team work, problem solving and explores mathematical principles, like estimation, counting and measurement”.

Livia Prisco-Durst
3yo & 4yo Teacher

Livia holds a Bachelor of Early Childhood Education from Monash University and has been with St Augustine’s since 2017.

“Working with children one on one is just as important as group play. We get to know each child’s strengths and support them individually to participate and interact, helping them build new skills and confidence along the way”.

Katherine Serraglio
3yo & 4yo Co-Worker

Katherine has been a valued educator at St Augustine’s for the last 20 years and holds a Certificate 3 in Children’s Services.

“We encourage your child to get to know the natural world around them. I love helping children to discuss and explore their senses through interacting with a range of natural objects like birds’ nests, insects, plant matter and, of course, our resident bunnies”.

Regina King
3yo & 4yo Co-Worker

Reggie is currently completing a Certificate 3 in Child Services and joined St Augustine’s early 2019.

“Painting, craft, sand and water play are just a few of the fantastic activities we offer that encourage children to use their imaginations, explore their creativity and self express with confidence”.
