Holly Baulderstone

Holly Baulderstone is a passionate, creative, and thoughtful Early Childhood Educator. She is currently the Head of Early Years at St Peter’s College in Adelaide, SA. In this role Holly has been inspired by Carla Rinaldi’s Re-imaging Childhood report to experiment with ways to reduce the fragmentation of children’s days. As an educator Holly loves exploring the languages of animation, clay, dance, and drawing as a way to create democratic spaces. Holly convenes the Adelaide REAIE Network Group and thrives on the dialogue and collaborative opportunities that this opens up for herself and colleagues. She has a two year old son and a 4 year old daughter who remind her everyday that there should be ‘nothing without joy’!
