Monica is our creative mind here at St Mary’s Preschool. She loves doing project based work with our children, where they can create and revisit their learning through open ended resources.
Monica is motivated by creating fun and interactive learning environments that inspire children to learn through play, supporting each child’s individual development milestones in preparation for school. Monica’s holistic and mindful approach to teaching, and trusting relationships she builds with children and their families is highly valued within our St Mary’s community. Her favourite space at our preschool is our mindfulness area, where children are free to work through their emotions and seek the mindful and sensory support they need to reflect, breathe or talk about their feelings, helping with self-regulation and developing a sense of identity. In her spare time you can find Monica getting outside whenever she can, walking her collie, Clover.
