KIEWA KIDS

Our Team

Dayna Cosgrove

Director

Hello, my name is Dayna and I am lucky enough to be the Director of Kiewa Kids. I have my Bachelor of
Early Childhood and Primary which I completed in 2015.


I have spent most of my experience in Early Childhood Education as a Preschool teacher within a long day care service and enjoy making meaningful connections with the children and families. I have a passion for quality care and education in the early years. I believe in children being capable, inquisitive learners and educators being able to scaffold their learning and guide children and families to reach their goals. I feel it is a privilege to become a part of each family’s life through my work and dedicate my days to be a positive influence on the children we are educating and caring for.  I am very excited to be a part of the team at Kiewa Kids and look forward to building our community together as we grow.
