Meet the Team

Kim: Owner/Teacher

Kim comes to GymbaROO Malvern with 11 years experience in primary teaching. At the beginning of her career she immersed herself in the Early Years of schooling and spent 8 years teaching across the Prep – 2 years.

After the birth of her first child, her beautiful daughter Madison, Kim found GymbaROO. It was while attending GymbaROO as a parent that Kim then took on the opportunity to work as a GymbaROO teacher. This she did with passion for 2 years before the arrival of her second child, gorgeous little Isaac.

When the time came to return to work, Kim jumped at the opportunity to return to GymbaROO, but this time running her own centre. She loves the time with the children, watching them grow and develop. Making amazing connections with families and supporting parents in understanding the journey of their child’s development, is one of the most rewarding parts of being a GymbaROO teacher.




Kim holds a Bachelors Degree in Psychology and an Honours Degree in Teaching from Melbourne University. She has also completed the extensive GymbaROO training to become a qualified GymbaROO instructor.

Melanie: Teacher

Melanie has a Diploma in Dance Instruction and Management. She has been teaching children from 6 months through to teenagers. Her teaching began over 20 years ago and now the mother of two busy children loves that her work can be done around them.
Melanie loves the milestones the children she teaches achieve and it’s the reason after all this time she still does what she does.



Vicky: Teacher

Vicky, a mum who can empathise with the joys and frustrations of young children is a teacher because of the immense enjoyment she experienced whilst bringing her own children, Nadine and Jorge to GymbaROO.

During the years she attended she recognised early on the thoroughly researched and fun GymbaROO program was hugely beneficial to babies, young children and their parents and it was because of this she jumped at the opportunity of being a GymbaROO teacher.

It is extremely rewarding to Vicky as she loves watching these tiny babies develop into wonderful, confident and enthusiastic children. She loves being able to assist families in making the most of this wonderful time. What an amazing job to spend each day laughing and dancing while ensuring these gorgeous infants don’t skip any crucial milestones.

Vicky comes from a Science background in pathology.
