As a mother myself, I am truly passionate about creating and maintaining an environment where every voice is heard and every child feels valued and completely comfortable to openly be and express themselves. I believe that every child is unique and beautiful in their own way and I believe that every child deserves the opportunity to be understood, nurtured and educated in a way that works with their individuality. Early education, in my opinion, plays such a crucial role in the development of social and interactive skills (such as sharing with others, patience and understanding people’s differences) that are an essential foundation for their future education and friendships as they grow.
