Meet the Teachers


Hello! I'm Marita.

Welcome to Selby Kinder! I have had the privilege of working as the 3 year old teacher and then becoming the Director and 4 year old teacher in July 2015.  It is fair to say that I have a real passion for this kinder as I have been a parent here watching my 3 children enjoy their time at Selby kinder and now as the teacher. 

I enjoy being a part of each family’s kinder experience and work to offer a relaxed, fun, play based program that is guided by the interests of the children.   I enjoy taking the time to get to know the children and families and love the variety and challenge that each day brings. 

It gives me a great deal of pleasure to watch the children grow and develop over the year and it is a pleasure working with Dee to guide and encourage the children along the way.

I hope you enjoy your time at Selby Kinder!

3YO and 4YO Co-Educator

Hi, I'm Katie Jacobson!

Being an educator brings me so much joy. I love being a champion for every child in my care, helping see the gifts and strengths that they each bring to the world. I'm incredibly passionate about embracing the power of nature play in children's learning and development. I love watching how it supports children's curiosity, imagination, creativity and problem solving.

I  joined the amazing staff at Selby Kinder in 2019 and I can't wait for the fun and adventures to begin. This year also sees me join the 4 YO Program in the role of Co-Educator  and I'm really looking forward to this new adventure!
