Hi! My name is Claire and I've recently joined the Mosaic family.
My role at Mosaic is to build and grow relationships with existing and new families to the Early Learning Centre, by supporting any existing programs, and implementing new initiatives as needed that meet the social, emotional, spiritual and psychological needs of the Mosaic community. The role will also provide community links to other activities within Mosaic as well as the wider South Perth community. It will also contribute to a supportive, inclusive and caring learning environment within the Centre, and provide support to the Mosaic community in times of grief, family breakdown and other crisis situations.
I am married to Brad, and mum to Jayden and Rachel. I enjoy being creative with sewing and art, being outdoors in nature, drinking tea or coffee, reading books and exercising. I am passionate about building authentic community and relationships, and supporting and mentoring people.
I have worked in a variety of job roles, including supporting young people in a housing service, managing an Indigenous scholarship program, and administration roles. Most recently, I graduated in 2014 with a Bachelor of Social Work, and have been volunteering in a couple of roles within my church since then.
I am based upstairs at Mosaic on a Monday, if you would like to come and say 'hi', otherwise my email is: email@example.com
I look forward to meeting and getting to know you.
