Hello, I am Alexander and as an early years educator, I believe it is my role to educate and guide children to lifelong learning. I believe each child is an individual with the right to learn, and learning through play-based experiences is a key foundation for young children as it supports and guides them into the person they will grow to become. I am passionate about providing a curriculum based on a variety of learning styles and techniques, and I value families input to guide and assist each child through their learning journey.
