Di Maher

Director of Wahroonga Beehive

I have been working as an early child educator for over 30 years in a range of Pre Schools, long day care services, family day care and school settings. Fortunately for the last 13 years I have been part of the wonderful Beehive family teaching and directing in both the Turramurra and Wahroonga centres. I am also very lucky to have my own family of three “big” kids who have now all graduated from university.

I am very passionate about early childhood education and I am devoted to the provision of quality education for young children. Early childhood is a crucial stage in our development. All children need to have time to play, to be excited by learning and to develop at their own pace. As an educator I believe it is my job to discover those special qualities that are unique to every child and support them to learn and to discover their world. Developing a love of learning, a thrill at discovering new things and a joy at sharing their experiences with others forms the foundation of all future learning.

I also strongly believe that parental involvement in a child’s education at any age underpins a child becoming a successful happy learner. For me the wonderful working relationships I develop with my Beehive families are what make my job really the best job in the world.
