About

Founder of Little Lessons AustraliaHello! I’m Leanne – parent, teacher and creator of Little Lessons Australia (est. Aug 2016). Thanks for visiting.

I have taught in country Victoria (with the best views of the Grampians – where teacher friends and I would visit on a weekend for lunch and awesome Halls Gap ice cream!) I have worked as a ‘supply teacher’ in London, UK and held various teaching positions in regional and metro SA.

After the arrival of my first child, I felt there was a real need for us as parents, to be able to access various information and support in our local community and connect with other parents. Whilst I knew of and connected with many services, I also knew there had to be many more. In 2012 after undertaking research in the community, along with two other Mums we established the not-for-profit, ‘The Parenting Playground Inc.’ During this time, we were fortunate to run a series of parenting workshops in Aldinga with amazing speakers. The feedback we received was beyond my expectations!

As a participant of the 2016 Onkaparinga Leadership Program I was given the opportunity to extend my skills and knowledge in the area of Leadership and building community capacity plus so much more. It was during this program that Little Lessons Australia was born.

Thank you for checking out my website. I look forward to meeting you at a future event. You may wish to connect via Instagram, Facebook & Twitter too!

All the best, Leanne
