We facilitate Yoga classes throughout the year. We have skilled visitors arrive to implement programs such as Foam Parties, Lego Play, Steel Pans, Get Low Dance, Magicians and more. We also conduct neighborhood walks, visit the local gardens and parks as well as the community centres. We have an incredibly large outdoor play space equipped with play structures and ample room for the children to engage in co-operative play, riding toys and more.

Any other degrees/ qualifications: Diploma - Registered Early Childhood Education

What are you passionate about: I am passionate about family, and last but not least appearances / presentation; things have to be looking appealing to the eyes at all time. Whether it’s myself/ my surroundings or my work environment i.e. (keeping the faces of children clean.) That is the first thing someone sees when they approach/enter. All this is because my Grandmother always says, “First Impressions are Lasting.”

One quirky fact about you: One quirky fact about me is that I am always on a diet until I see fried chicken
