Centre Head, MOE Kindergarten @ Fernvale
"Children can be reflective thinkers and happy learners when they are given the opportunity to explore and think about their learning."
Shirlie endeavours to provide a quality and holistic education for young children within a warm, caring, secure and conducive environment. She believes that young children find joy in being able to express themselves openly without any reproach or judgement and character development is the foundation for lifelong learning. Role-modelling, tapping teachable moments and meaningful experiences are some ways in which she thinks the values in children could be nurtured. She enjoys listening to the children's voices and seeks to give them opportunities to explore and discover through play.
She sees parents as children's first teachers. She strives to empower them to see the good and possibilities in their children by working closely with them.
