My main goal: To ensure that children feel safe, secure and supported at Big Bear Academy and also that families feel like the centre is there second home.

Director: Sandy Wany (ECT)

My experience: With more than 8 years of industry experience, I bring innovative, creative and inviting programs for children.
I began my career as a preschool teacher and there I provided meaningful experiences for children. After teaching for a few years, I realised my passion was Early Learning,  so I took on a role as an Educational Leader where I worked closely with educators, families and management teams on how to ensure programs for children were inclusive and adaptable in the classroom. I began to mentor and guide educators to be the best that they can be. I then began managing services where I created deep bonds with families, children and communities.

This led me to be the Director of Big Bear Academy and I look forward to meeting all families and welcoming them into the Big Bear Family.
