Once an aspiring academic, Amy found her true passion as an early childhood educator after becoming a mother. During the time that she stayed at home to raise her babies, she went back to school to earn her certificate in Early Childhood Education and then a Master’s of Science in Education. Prior to joining Kid Works, she worked as a teacher of toddlers and preschoolers, an administrator of a preschool program, and as a project manager for a company that specializes in educational products. When she discovered Kid Works and learned about its philosophy, she knew she had to be a part of its community.
Amy strongly believes that children are active protagonists in their own learning, as teacher and children journey together to construct knowledge about the world around us. She loves to listen to the children’s stories to find common threads that unite us as humans, in addition to using the children’s ideas as a springboard to meaningful curriculum.
Her ultimate goal is for every family that walks through the doors at Kid Works to feel they have a home away from home, where children are nurtured and supported as they develop a love of learning that will last them a lifetime.
