“My passion is working with preschool-age children giving them opportuniites to be creative in art. In the style of Reggio Emilia, I provide a creative art environment that gives children the opportunity to observe, inquire, explore and use fine motor and cognitive skills. Art provides them with an awareness of themselves and their surroundings.”
