My first and most important task was to decide what our approach to literacy would be. Without hesitation, I implemented a scheme called ‘The Power of Reading’, an initiative…

#playmatters

The most rewarding part of my role as an educator is witnessing the joy experienced by a child when they are at play. Play is the time for creating our own ideas, making new discoveries, finding interest in our environment and sharing enjoyment with those around us. Too often in my time working with children…
