My Philosophy

“Enter into children’s play and you will find the place where their minds, hearts and souls meet” – Virginia Axline

As an Early Childhood Teacher I view myself as a life long learner. Each interaction with every child deepens my experience, understanding and practice as a teacher. Continual growth is influenced by current research and reflection.

I am committed to being present, caring and genuine in interactions with children and families and aim to always be responsive to children’s needs and interests. I aim to give children opportunities to develop dispositions such as resilience, kindness, creativity and curiosity through experiences that foster a love of learning.

Learning in nature, and about the natural world deepens our understanding of the human experience – “Allow children to be happy in their own way; for what better way will they ever find?” – Ghandi
