About me

Hi, I’m Edwina

An Early Childhood educator with roots in sunny South Africa (which means I often call a spade a spade), and a teaching journey that’s taken me around the world from Dubai to here in Perth, Australia. With a background in Applied Psychology, and Education, I’ve worn many hats, starting out as a secondary school language teacher, before finally settling in the world of early childhood education.

Over a decade ago I entered a Pre-Primary classroom, and discovered something game-changing. Kids thrive when they’re given the opportunity to explore their interests! No brainer, right? That’s where I found my teaching style, thanks to mentors like Doctor Claire Warden and Kath Murdoch, whose ideas on Nature Pedagogy and inquiry-based learning lit a fire in me… and my students!

I’ve seen the magic that happens when you combine structured, explicit literacy and numeracy instruction, with inquiry and project-based learning. It’s like watching a desert bloom after rain, with kids’ curiosity and creativity flourishing alongside their academic learning.
