With my previous experience as a High School Educator, I discovered that early childhood experiences have lifelong impacts; therefore, it is important to lay a postive foundation for children’s growth and development.  As an early Learning Specialist, however, I endeavor to provide a safe, nurturing, supportiv, and inclusive environment, where children and their families feel a deep sense of belonging and are able to reach their full potential.

I believe strongly in fostering relationships; hence I love being with my family (espcially my young children) in my spare time

As an Early Learning Specialist at EarlyON, I do my best to support children and families in creating a safe, inclusive and diverse learning environment. I have been learning English because my first language is Mandarin. I am working on updating my educational skills so I can share this knowledge with families in our programs.
In my spare time I enjoy learning about psychology. I also enjoy travelling with my family and friends, and watching live TV shows!

When I think of “Families”, I think of Parents, Caregivers, Grandparents and Children.
When I think of “Communities”, I think of Partnerships, Outdoors, Nature, Beauty and Life.
When I think of EarlyON, I see Staff, Families and Community…. what do you see?
In my spare time, I enjoy outdoors and its beauty. I enjoy staying connected with family and friends but I especially enjoy baking cakes and “Eating them”.

My favourite thing about EarlyON is our diverse community. My favourite part of the day is when I get to see children explore their environment. I learn a lot by watching them play. My goal is to help families build strong foundations for their children. In my spare time, I like to spend time outdoors and watch funny movies with my family!

I am proud to be part of a team who seeks to support all families by being a home away from home. We know we are doing our job when families cannot wait to share their children’s new milestones reached.
In my spare time, I volunteer with the Youth Justice Committee, a program that supports young people to make amends for minor offenses and encourages a positive contribution to the community.

As an educator, my goal is to promote kindness and compassion in every aspect of learning. I am inspired by the Reggio Emilia approach. Another goal of mine is to visit Reggio Emilia Italy to capture the curriculum and to incorporate it into everyday learning. I am currently working on my master’s module of self-regulation from the Mehrit Centre.
