Welcome to the Port Stephens Campus
At Narnia Port Stephens we are looking forward to partnering with every family to provide your child with the best start in Early Education and Care.
At Narnia we place Christ as the core of everything we do and experience great joy as we journey together with each child.
We follow the Early Years Learning Framework and we strive to provide environments both indoors and out that allow children to be individual learners; to experience joy, wonder and fun in all they do; to be immersed with new ideas and discovery; to follow their interests; to be the very best they can be; and to learn more about who they are as created by a loving God.
The Centre’s proximity to St Philips Christian College Junior School benefits the Transition to School program by allowing easier access to the Junior School facilities.
Children preparing for school become very familiar with the school environment before they begin Kindergarten with regular lessons and visits as part of the program.
We can’t wait to meet and get to know your children and watch their journey of discovering all that God has created them to be.

Meet Our Staff
Narnia staff are educated and experienced in Early Childhood education. We follow the Early Years Learning Framework to provide developmentally appropriate activities which are stimulating, challenging and creative and which cater for individual needs and interests. We provide flexible programs which promote self-discovery, spontaneous learning, independence and a positive self-esteem.
Our greatest aim is for all children to feel safe and secure in a loving Christian environment. This is the greatest entry point for learning.
I have over 20 years’ experience in both early childhood and Primary School teaching. I believe children should be exposed to an unprejudiced and fair society that is free from discrimination. I feel it is pertinent that children are able to be themselves and feel safe, supported, happy and confident in their learning environment. My interests are fitness and all things outdoors embracing a healthy attitude for life.
I am very excited to be part of the Narnia team and I look forward to working with like minded professional colleagues, who have quality education and care at the forefront of our minds.
I have a Bachelor of education and over 10 years experience as an Early Childhood Teacher. With a passion to teach in holistic ways I adopt various approaches to enhance children’s learning.
I play guitar, ukulele and sing with children to engage, teach and promote children’s emotional and physical wellbeing. I enjoy many creative pursuits and love living in Port Stephens with my husband and 3 sons.
My name is Dyan Brown. I have my Certificate III (2013) and Diploma (2016) in Early Childhood Education. I have been working with children since I finished my HSC in 2012 and have thoroughly enjoyed every moment.
I believe each child has their own unique strengths and ways in which they learn and I love to help encourage their own individualism and grow as a person.
I feel absolutely honoured to be part of the team at Narnia. I am qualified with a Diploma in Early Childhood Education and have been working in the industry since 2017.
I love God and I love caring for his little ones. I know that God has a beautiful plan for each child and my goal is to create a safe, nurturing environment and draw out their strengths and passions whilst helping them grow in their God given abilities.
I am married and have 3 gorgeous children. I have worked in the industry for over 20 years and I believe children are little miracles from God. As an educator I am blessed to spend time with each and everyone of your beautiful children.
It is our responsibility to encourage a child to develop self concept through play based activities that helps a child to develop in all earning areas to achieve their full potential. I look forward to being a part of your child’s journey through Narnia.
I feel blessed to have been apart of the Narnia Port Stephens staff since it opened in 2017. I love caring for children and watching them grow into the unique individuals that God has created them to be.
I am married with three children and regularly attend Baylife Church at Anna Bay. I enjoy spending time with family and friends, going to the beach and taking walks in this beautiful area we live in.
I am so exited to be a part of the Narnia team. There is such beautiful presence of God and atmosphere like no other here at Narnia
I believe children are the future of this nation and I am passionate about the nurture and care of children while teaching them to be their own individual creative self and to help foster their independence while they gain valuable life skills.
I have been blessed to have started off as a trainee at Narnia in July 2020, which I enjoyed thoroughly. I have grown up with younger siblings which has made me love the idea of working with children from a young age.
I look forward to starting this new chapter that God has lead me to and become a part of the beautiful Narnia team. I am so excited to watch these little ones grow and reach their developmental milestones. I have already learnt so much since being here and am looking forward to what’s ahead.
