Over the last 9 years, Elaine has been working in the Early Childhood Sector in Hong Kong, Adelaide and most recently in Hobart. She believes children learn best through play, and that play allows them to stay motivated in exploring and learning, as well as preserve creativity. Elaine recognised the importance of play to the young children; therefore, deciding to relocate to Australia to further her studies and experience. Elaine has a Diploma in Early Childhood and is currently studying her Bachelor of Education, Early Childhood.
Elaine enjoys working and learning collaboratively with children. She views children as co-learners and is always impressed by their wonderings and findings. This belief also drives Elaine’s work with adult learners, working in partnership to support each other’s growth in professionalism, through reflection and constructive feedback.
Her current and recent areas of focus include:
Online learning resource development
Reggio Emilia Approach
Marte Meo Approach
