Statement of Philosophy

I believe childhood is the most precious time. It can create beautiful memories for the children and lead to a good beginning in the whole of life. As an educator, working with the children, I know I can play a significant role in their life’s journey.

I believe safety and health are the most important aspects concerning children. As an educator, I need to focus on the well-being of children, ensuring their basic needs are always met. For children to be able to learn, they need first to be happy and healthy. Children need to eat and sleep regularly to maintain their physical health.

I believe that children are capable and competent, have absorbent minds and they can learn through their play experiences. As an educator, I need to allow children to have endless opportunities to explore and discover so that they can learn through these experiences. It is very important to offer open ended, process oriented, developmentally appropriate play that relate to the children’s interests.

Also, as a mother, I believe I can understand most parents and I will support the children as they need. I will commit to the education of each child and I am happy to see each little one grow up healthily and happily.
