Hello Budding Children’s Garden & Daycare!
My name is Sarah and I’m excited to have joined the wonderful team of teachers here at Buddings. I’m looking forward to getting to know all of the children and parents. I’ve been lucky enough to meet some of you already. You’ll recognize me by my mop of curly hair!
I recently moved back to Vancouver after spending two years in Kelowna teaching preschool. I grew up in the Okanagan and enjoyed being back in Kelowna; however, I missed city life and couldn’t resist moving back to the coast when the opportunity arose. I’m so glad to be back in Vancouver with its mixture of urban living and outdoor adventure. When I’m not teaching, I love spending time reading novels, writing poetry, painting, and running. I also try to spend as much time near the ocean and in the mountains as I can.
I have a B.A. and a B.Ed from UBC specializing in early childhood and primary school teaching. I fell in love with teaching preschool after completing my Education degree. I absolutely love working with young children! I find it especially rewarding to see the children develop socially and emotionally, watching them share with and care for their new friends. It’s such a privilege to witness children learning how to interact with each other and express themselves through language, art, music, and dance, among other things.
I can’t wait to get to know all of the families at Buddings! I’m looking forward to meeting you all soon.
