Óran O’Connor

Founder – Director

Óran grew up in the world of early childhood. Geri, his mother, has spent 35 years of her adult life working in the field, and founded The Children’s Garden in 2005. Óran’s passion for providing remarkable early years education was founded in his years studying Psychology at the University of Western Australia and continued to develop as he proceeded to work as Business Manager at The Children’s Garden.

Here, Óran assisted in the development of an ‘early years’ educational curriculum which has, and continues to, exceed national standards in all facets. An appreciation for early years education and the influence of early experiences on a child’s life, matched with a passion for providing an exceptional education to Australian families, led to the creation of Scola Early Learning as a means of providing best practice education to Perth families.
