My name is Dee and I moved to Melbourne from Malaysia in 2004 where I studied at University of Melbourne for my Bachelor of Early Childhood. While I was studying, I worked in numerous centres as a casual. After the 4 year course, I worked as a 3 year old kinder teacher in St Kilda, giving me the great opportunity to put my studies in practice.

After 2 years, I took a break and flew to Nepal on a volunteer program where I worked in an orphanage, teaching them Maths and Science. The program not only gave me an insight to how significantly important education is, but also narrowed down my passion in the early childhood sector. When I came back to Melbourne, I enrolled in Masters of Education; specialising in Thinking, Knowledge and Creativity. I am fascinated with the human mind and how children at a very young age are able to manipulate, evaluate and apply knowledge to develop innovative and creative outcomes.

I have been working at Dawson Street since 2013.
