I have been living in Hong Kong and teaching kindergarten in international schools here for almost 20 years. I’m originally from Australia but love this city and consider it home.
I first started training in Early Childhood Education over 18 years ago which led to my philosophy about the importance of play based learning. It is my belief that children should have the opportunity to be able to follow their own interests and initiative in a stimulating, encouraging and loving environment.
This ideal inspired me to design my own learning centre in Hong Kong for children under 7. My goal was to help parents understand the benefits of learning through play and for children to experience the joy and satisfaction of learning and developing in a fun hands-on way. The centre is still in operation today.
I am passionate about working with young children and believe learning through play is a key foundation to nurturing confident, balanced and successful people. I enjoy working together with families and think open communication between home and school is vitally important. I'm always available to talk and help in any way I can and look forward to getting to know not just my students, but their families too.
