Kiah – Senior Early Childhood Educator

My name is Kiah and I am a proud Kuku Yalanji, Iman and South Sea Islander woman and a senior early childhood educator at Deadly Kindy Gundoo Mirra.

I have been working with ATSICHS Brisbane since July 2021. Being a part of the Deadly Kindy team is amazing, I love coming to work every day. I grew up in Acacia Ridge with my siblings and many cousins and we would often have family barbeques at our neighbouring Splash Park and Crooked Park. Being familiar with the local area is what drew me to Gundoo Mirra. I love working with all our gundoos and being connected to community and culture.

The most rewarding part of my role is witnessing our children on their journey of finding their identities and figuring things out for themselves. It shows a sense of pride, excitement and happiness in their achievements. Even if I can get a small grin from an upset child during drop-off times, that is a beautiful and simple reward right there!

I’m committed to embedding our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures into our program and building important connections within our community.
