Dr Bev Evangelides, Early Learning School Headmistress

Bev has been immersed in Education for almost forty years and has circumnavigated the full spectrum of educative phases. Being a lifelong student, she started off by completing a Higher Diploma of Education majoring in Mathematics, followed by a BA Degree and Honours Degree in Psychology and finally married the two disciplines when completing her master’s degree and PhD in the Psychology of Education.

Her teaching career spans over many years in both teaching and management positions. In 2011 she entered corporate education working at AdvTech as a National Academics Co-Ordinator. This position encompassed working with teachers and management in the various brands of schools and allowed her to research international trends in education and allowed her many opportunities to visit schools both nationally and internationally. In 2015 she joined Reddam House Early Learning School, the one phase that was missing in my teaching career. Managing staff and young children aged one to six in a Reggio Inspired school is her swan song.

She is married to Glenn, has one daughter, Kerri-Lee and a grandson, Zihan aged 5 who inspires her to explore and remain curious in a big and beautiful world, every day.

Graeme Crawford, Reddam House Founder & Inspired Group President

Graeme Crawford is a renowned educator who began his career as a science teacher and believed that much more could be done to improve educational standards.
Driven by his own negative schooling experiences, he began conceiving a school that could provide a rounded education through a dynamic new approach. This was aimed at maximising not just the academic standard, but also the confidence, potential and individuality of each child. Graeme opened his first school in 1993. In the following five years the Crawford Schools grew to 6 in total. In 2000, he founded Reddam House.
