I feel so privileged to have been selected to fulfil the role as Head of the Preschool; it is truly a dream come true. I aim to ensure that each child reaches their full potential in a way that is best suited to them as an individual.
In all my years of teaching, I cannot say that I have ever come across a staff base as positive and full of love as Broadacres Academy. I absolutely love their learning style and couldn’t have found a school better suited to my beliefs.
I am firmly of the belief that if a child truly feels loved, they will be confident enough to explore outside of their comfort zone and this will lead to incredible results in and out of the classroom.
Being a Mom myself, I understand how truly difficult it is to leave your child in somebody else’s care. I would like to assure every parent that my duty is to ensure that their child is happy and content at school so that parents can have total peace of mind during the school day.
One of my favourite quotes is,
“Children learn as they play. Most importantly, in play children learn how to learn.”
-O. Fred Donaldson
