Hello! I’m Amrit and I have been in the Early Childhood industry for 10 years. I hold a Bachelors of Communications from the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology and a Post Graduate Diploma in Early Childhood Education. I am the Nursery 2, Parakeets’ class teacher.
I spent the early part of my career as a communication skills coach to undergraduates and adults before becoming a speech and drama teacher at various kindergartens in Singapore. It was not long before I came to realise that nothing satisfies me more than teaching pre-schoolers and building strong foundations in their crucial years.
I then began teaching in an international school for six years which provided me with an invaluable opportunity to understand the learning needs and styles of young learners from a diverse range of cultural backgrounds and develop my teaching abilities as an educator in an environment that focused on learning through play.
I love drama, singing and story-telling and am passionate in making every lesson a fun and exciting experience because young children learn best whilst making meaningful connections to their environment. My goal for children under my care, is to allow them to access their instinctive desire for enquiry and enjoy their day, every day.
As an early childhood educator, I truly believe that children are like sponges, absorbing everything around them and have often seen that making a child do something for the sake of doing it will not develop their curiosity for learning. We have to foster the love of learning in children before they start loving to learn from us. This is the very spirit embodied here at Swallows and Amazons and what makes it an absolute pleasure working with my SAA family!
