Celina Hage

Nursery Lead

“I believe that the early years of a child’s education are crucial in setting up strong foundations for their learning.  My teaching practice reflects my philosophy that every student can develop a love of life-long learning through engaging and dynamic teaching and a supportive classroom environment.  During the early years, a child will build their confidence, develop their social and emotional skills and begin constructing their knowledge and understanding across key learning areas.  I ensure that all of my students have the tools and opportunities to achieve success in these areas of their education by facilitating learning experiences that are relevant to students’ well-being and reflect an ever-changing society.”
