Our Teachers

Our teachers are Registered Early Childhood Educators (RECEs) who bring years of professional experience. They specialize in emergent, play-based learning, and are a wonderful resource for our school. They know and love kids!

Carlye Brownell

Supervisor / Head Teacher

Carlye has been an RECE for the past 15 years. For 5 of those years she ran a successful childcare centre out of her home and is a former Moppet parent herself. She’s a versatile educator with a passion for children’s learning and care, and thrives in a space where she can see young minds expanding around her each and every day. Having seen the massive beneficial effects that Moppet had on her own children, she is honoured and excited to be a part of this process herself for other families.

Tara Miller


Tara has been working with children for the past 11 years. For 5 of those years she ran a successful home care and then was welcomed into the home of a wonderful family as their nanny for 3 years. Tara is a dedicated, upbeat, caring and patient person who thrives on making every child’s experience fun and uplifting while they learn. Albert Einstein once said “It is the supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in the creative expression and knowledge.” She believes that Moppet brings this quote alive and is very excited to be a part of it!
