“I love to see children grow; knowing where they start, and where they end up. The Montessori approach to childcare is essential to developing independence from a young age, and this is what I am most passionate about. I feel as though I am a mother to all the children here, and I make it my mission to know each one of them. This is probably why I feel such pride when they graduate. I work closely with the team and I think that progression and learning is important for us too – we have to set the best examples. Attention to care is paramount, so I want to keep relationships strong with the staff, the children, and the parents – this is what makes people want to come back.”
