Meet the Teacher: Nathan

Our teachers are the heart and soul of our programs. They bring it to life better than we could ever imagine, and we are so grateful for them! We sat down with one of our awesome teachers, Nathan and asked him a few questions to get to know him better. Read the answers below:

Tell us a bit about yourself.

I’m 24 years old and I’m a primary school teacher. I love playing and watching sport, taking my dogs for walks and drinking coffee.

How long have you been teaching with KidsCo?

I’ve been with KidsCo since December 2018. So just over 2 years.

Why is KidsCo the best place to work!

I wanted to be part of the fun and help to make the kids' school holidays enjoyable. Coming to work at KidsCo allows you to be a big kid and enjoy the fun. Everyday Is something different and we all share the same passion for ensuring the kids are enjoying every moment.

Tell us your favourite KidsCo story.

Meeting the Geelong Cats players, particularly Joel Selwood was a highlight for not only me but the kids too. Also, being able to immerse yourself into various workspaces and provide such a valuable service for parents and such a fun one for the kids.

If you could have 5 guests (anyone in the world) at a dinner party, who would it be?

Jurgen Klopp, Kanye West, Steve Irwin, Nick Kyrgios and Bear Grylls.

What has been your favourite KidsCo theme and why?

Survivor Is my favourite theme. It was so much fun having the challenges, hosting tribal council and hunting for Immunity Idols.

What made you smile yesterday?

Our two cocker spaniels, Poppy and Belle.

Basketball or AFL?

AFL - Go Cats!

What is your favourite easter chocolate?

Creme Eggs!

If you weren’t a teacher, what would be your dream occupation?

I would be a professional soccer coach, preferably being the Liverpool FC manager.
