Meeting The Head Office Team - Emma Hart - Head of Teaching

Emma Hart is the Mini Maestros Head of Teaching and has been working as part of the Head Office team for over 13 years. Emma worked closely with the late Mini Maestros founder Jenny Fogarty, who sadly passed away in 2007. Because of this close relationship, Emma has carried with her the core values of the Mini Maestros program, which remain integral to the maintenance and continued development of the program.

Emma is a inspiring mentor for teachers and has developed the comprehensive 15-month training programme that makes our teachers experts in their field.

Emma’s passion for teaching and education, coupled with her authenticity and honesty, spark inspiration in everyone she works with. Emma is passionate about keeping up to date with cutting edge educational philosophies and research, which feed into the Mini Maestros program. Emma also manages the bookings of Mini Maestros incursions in Early Learning Centres around Australia.

Our tagline, “Nurturing Confident Learners” is echoed though Emma’s nurturing of all staff, both within the Head Office team and in the extended Mini Maestros family of franchisees and teachers. She can often be found singing or busting a daggy dance move in the office.

We interviewed Emma about super powers, life advice and deserted islands.

Question 1: Assuming you already have food and water, what 3 things would you take to a deserted island?

To be honest, I find this question difficult. Having done it already once this life, I’m not overly fond of being on a deserted island, but if you’re trying to get a closer look at my favourite things :-)… well, then that would be my daughter, my frypan and my Ukulele. That way we can continue to do what we love doing most together, making music, cooking and eating… and, of course, being in nature!

Question 2: Who is your favourite band/musician at the moment? Robbie Boyd. I’ve just discovered him, and find his music to be sweet, soulful folk/pop. My 21month old daughter absolutely loves his music too and claps and dances along when we play it. You can check out his lovely songs here

I also adore Sounds of Soul, a Melbourne outfit that is made up of two incredible women Tina Kopa and Catherine Wood. Their music is seriously good, and they have dedicated their album to all women. This album is so great to have on in the car, and again, my daughter loves it… especially the track ‘Ode to Purple’, a dedication to Prince, and it really sounds like he could have written it too! Check them out here:

Question 3: What superpower would you like to have and why?

Okay, at the risk of sounding like a motivational speaker, I really feel we already have all the superpowers we need, we just need to trust them!

So, in answer to this, I guess I could say trusting and accepting myself completely.

Question 4: What are 3 pieces of advice you would give to a child as they embark on their life’s journey?

Listen to your heart, listen to your body and trust yourself - because you are already enough, just as you are.

Question 5: What’s the best thing about working for Mini Maestros and being part of the Head Office team?

The care shown for each other and fun had. It’s a really busy office and team, so I appreciate that time is taken to connect with each other when we can. I feel relationships (and nurturing them) is a cornerstone of any successful business.
