About Kirstie & the team
With a qualification and background in primary school teaching as well as tertiary qualifications in Early childhood and social sciences (psychology and criminology), owner and Director of Mud Puddles Cottage Kristie Jackson, brings a unique and diverse understanding of children’s social, emotional and psychological needs.
10 years in primary education—spanning special needs, behaviour and mainstream classrooms—has provided her with a thorough and expansive knowledge of early education. Kristie has lived in Emu Plains her whole life and all three of her own beautiful children have gone through Mud Puddles. With a strong belief that education is a means of empowering children to be the best they can be, Kirstie is committed to enhancing the skills of our future leaders at Mud Puddles through quality educational programs and exemplary care that is both innovative and inclusive.
