Florence is in her 14th year in education. In her earlier years, she was teaching primary school children in international cum government schools in Singapore and China. Her breaking point came when she came to realise the importance of holistic development of a child beginning in their early years, which led her to take up Diploma in Early Childhood – Teaching from NIEC, National Institute of Early Childhood in Singapore. Here, she pondered through the thoughts of Reggio Emilia, Maria Montessori, Jean Piaget and the like which led her to wanting to know more about the approach of Reggio Emilia, which espouses the ‘Image of a child’ while reflecting on her practice and her approach as an early childhood practitioner in the preschool. In time, she is looking to pursue further studies in Early Childhood to sharpen her skills and understanding. In her free time, Florence enjoys a good swim and a good workout at the gym.
