Hello, my name is Mary Clark, originally from Perth, WA. I graduated in Early Childhood Education from Edith Cowan University, WA 2008. I have one son who is 16 and attending High School in Perth. I am a very nurturing teacher who works to ensure that each child is welcomed. I see each child as an individual with his or her unique talents and strengths. I believe that positive encouragement and affirmation play a vital part in each child's learning development. I believe in Holistic, play based and child-centered education and in the optimum development of each child's potential in all learning areas: cognitive, social, emotional and physical. Parents are the first educators and I give key focus to constant communication with parents and carers as we are partners in their child's ongoing progress in learning. I look forward to working with you and your child in 2018 in a loving, warm, inclusive classroom environment which makes their kindy year exciting, and lays the foundation for a lifetime of successful learning.
