Statement of Philosophy

My professional philosophy as an Early Childhood Teacher is that children learn through play by experiencing themselves in different learning environments. I believe that every child is unique and that they learn in their own way. 

As an Early Childhood Teacher, I provide the children with the most diverse learning environment possible to give them the best opportunity to understand themselves as learners, critical thinkers and  valuable individuals.

I also work to partner with parents, families and caregivers and the local community to provide the children with a healthy, inclusive environment and positive guidance.

In my classroom, we are all part of a special little family and it is my responsibility to make every moment of kindergarten an adventure.
