Faculty and Staff

Our teachers are researchers, observers and co-constructors of knowledge.  While investigations emerge from children’s interests and ideas, teachers create meaningful learning experiences in negotiation with the children.  Our teachers are documenters, capturing the stories of children’s experiences and the progression of their developing understandings.  Our teachers are collaborators, supporting social relationships which include children, educators, families and the community.  Our teachers are life-long learners, committed to reflection on their practice and to ongoing professional development.

We are proud to have a passionate and dedicated team of faculty and staff with whom we can embark on the journey of learning.
