Emma's Philosophy:

"My personal philosophy focuses on supporting children to discover and realise their own potential a unique individuals as well as valuable global citizens, who can help shape a better world.

"To help children discover and realise their own potential, I believe it is important to allow opportunities for self-discovery. To me this means giving the children the freedom to express themselves, create, explore and learn through play

"To assist the children’s development, I teach the children different tools that they can use, that will guide them on their journey through self-discovery. "This includes doing yoga sessions with the children, where they gain greater self-awareness and learn to look after their own wellbeing in fun and engaging ways.

"I also feel it is part of my duty as an Educator to open the children’s eyes to see the greater world around them.

"I aim to foster a deeper connection to and appreciation for the natural environment by involving them in nature crafts.

"I also like to share my interest in other cultures with the children through means of dance, music, art and crafts."
