Directors – Shavaun Andreou + Emily Hargreaves
Executive Officer – Lledo Mustieles
Hola! my name is Lledo. I hold a diploma in Early Childhood education, and I previously worked as a lead educator for 8 years, first in Sydney and then in Canberra. I also studied a bachelor’s degree in English philology back in Spain.
I love working at Aranda Afters because I can apply my organisational skills on the administrative side of the education sector and at the same time interact with the children (my favourite thing to do is picking the kindies up). I enjoy helping children value and appreciate nature, but cultural diversity is also very important for me.
I am a bird passionate and in my free time I love hiking, going camping, cooking (as a good Mediterranean) and listening to metal, rock and punk music.
