Head Teacher / Curriculum & SEN Coordinator
My name is Jeannette Yeo and I am the Head Teacher / Curriculum Co-ordinator/ Kindergarten Class Teacher. I started my teaching career, as an Assistant Teacher in a local early learning centre after my A levels and the enriching experience cemented my decision to work with young children. Since then, I have been working in the Early Childhood field for about 17 years, both in the local and international contexts - in inclusive settings for children aged from 2 to 6 year olds. I have also had work experience in the US. For the last 11 years, I have been working in Swallows and Amazons in the various capacities mentioned above. Currently, I hold Bachelors in Education (Early Childhood) (with Hons.), an Advanced Diploma in Special Needs and Inclusive Education and most recently, an Advanced Diploma in Early Childhood Leadership.
I enjoy working in an Early Childhood environment because I get to see the world through the eyes of the children and seeing them acquire skills through their play experiences often leave me in awe and wonder. What more, I get to “play” all day! Working with children gives me an opportunity to see things in a new perspective.
My goal for every child in my care is to become the most successful and confident people that they are made to be. I strongly believe that it is important to support and develop children’s EQ and develop the “soft” skills that will take them not only in the next stage of their lives but also far into their lives.
