I am Katie Natarelli, and I am the Director here at Zimmer. 

I have over ten years of experience working with children within Early Childhood Education. I’ve worked as a Teacher’s Assistant, Lead Teacher, and Head Teacher before becoming a Director, which I have been doing for the past three years. 

Early Childhood education allows for instructors to set the framework for children to become lifelong learners. I believe that all children must have a stimulating learning environment where they can feel safe. Learning in a safe environment, and one that encourages resilience and perseverance, means children have the space to confidently explore, learn, and grow in all aspects of development. A positive learning experience in preschool and primary school gives children the foundation they need to be successful in whatever they do.

In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my daughter. We enjoy reading stories, going for walks, going to the Zoo, feeding the animals at Johnson’s Park together. I am currently teaching her sign language. I am so excited, and I feel so lucky that she is a Zimmer student.
