As a dedicated early childhood professional, Susan believes children learn best through play and socializing with their peers. “Play” is essential and helps facilitate the development of a child’s cognitive, emotional, social and physical abilities. Susan also believes placing an emphasis on kindness within our nursery school family is essential and is convinced that if children learn the importance of being thoughtful at a young age it will stay with them into adulthood, resulting in a kinder world.
