Moira has over 20 years experience as an early childhood teacher. Initially working in mainstream child care centres and preschools, her interest in working with children with disabilities led her to employment with Connect Child and Family Services. Here she worked as an Inclusion Support Professional, supporting the inclusion of children with disabilities in mainstream early childhood centres. She also led a pilot project setting up a Transition to School Program in the Blue Mountains and Penrith areas.

As a Teacher of the Deaf for the past 10 years, Moira has worked in RIDBC preschools and the Early Learning Program for children with a sensory impairment. In both of these settings she was able to explore her particular interest in emerging literacy.
