Centre Head, MOE Kindergarten @ Wellington
"To build a strong start, every child should be provided with opportunities to be creative thinkers and confident learners with strong values."
Johana believes that children learn through purposeful play involving real life objects and varied experiences. Through exploration, children discover innovative ways of doing things. Quality interactions that are respectful, responsive and reciprocal will also help children build on ideas and concepts together. She also believes in instilling in children values such as respect, responsibility, integrity and care through teachable moments and role-modelling. These will guide children in their journey of lifelong learning and provide the foundation for them to grow up to be confident and active contributors to society.
Together with her team of passionate and dedicated educators, Johana strives to enrich children's learning experiences by establishing strong partnerships with families and the community and involving them in children's learning.
