Amanda Allan

ECLC Coordinator at Elsternwick ECLC

How long have you been a part of the Wesley ECLC?
Nine years

What’s your favourite part of the job?
I love to see the world through the children’s eyes; hearing their theories on how the world works and seeing the discovery across their faces when they see or learn something new.

What do you think children love the most about Wesley Elsternwick ECLC?
Our outdoor environment is very special with lots of natural elements, including four big trees and a treehouse. The children love playing in this space with their friends. They also find being within a larger school setting very exciting. When children have a question about dinosaurs for example, we can go to the Middle School’s Science department or library to find the answers.

‘The sense of community we experienced at the Elsternwick Open Day has continued since enrolling our children. Both our boys have embraced their Wesley journey and made some great friends. They talk fondly of their teachers outside of school hours and look forward to each day. What more could we ask?’
