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!

I look forward to meeting you at a future event. You may wish to connect via Instagram, Facebook & Twitter too!

All the best, Leanne
