Felicity Brandon


Head of School


Felicity took over as Kinma's Head of School in 2023.  She understands and embraces the “Kinma Way” and uses her experience of teaching in this progressive style of education to ensure that children love learning, that the sense of community thrives, and that there are caring and close relationships between all children, families and staff.

Felicity has been working at Kinma since 2006. She started as the Preschool Authorised Supervisor then went part-time whilst having her three children. She came to Kinma with experience across many different Early Childhood settings. She has brought her breadth of knowledge of child development, her love for learning through nature and her ease of working with and understanding families.

Once her children were all at Kinma primary, Felicity continued part-time work at Kinma and ventured out to other centers, working closely with staff developing their programs and practices. She has also mentored new Early Childhood Teachers doing their accreditation with NESA (or the Board of Studies).

Where to park

For safety reasons and to minimise congestion we ask that people enter via Aumuna Rd, and leave by Coolowie Rd.


Primary parking is available nose to curb on Coolowie Rd in front of the school. Please do not park on the opposite side of the road.

The bus stop also needs to be kept clear in the afternoon; this is the area between the driveway to the hall and about 1/3 of the way down the path towards the basketball court.

Preschool has a car park.
