Who is your favourite cartoon character and why?

Pepe Le Pew – not sure why I like him, I just think he is cute and funny.

Statement of Philosophy

I believe that as an Early Childhood Educator, I am responsible for providing infants, toddlers, and young children with positive learning experiences. I strive to model respect, patience, and care for children and adults I come in contact with. Children have the right to have their needs met and receive proper education while in care.

I believe that young people learn best through play. Play-based learning allows children to develop at their own pace as learning happens through process and children are naturally curious and creative.

My role as an Educator is to support children’s intellectual and social growth.

Learning is a social process that is based on trust, respect, and encouragement. I am an observer, supporter, a guide that brings wisdom and thoughtfulness to each child’s unique way of learning.

I want to support each child in my care and give them the tools to be successful little people. My hope is that they become well rounded children that love to learn, feel positive about themselves, are considerate to others, sensitive, show kindness to others, try new things, and stand up for their own rights and the rights of others.
