Ms Brenna Milroy
position: Classroom Teacher
Ms Brenna comes to us from the UK. She has been teaching for over 25 years with her most recent experience being at EtonHouse in Singapore. As she began to learn more about the Reggio Emilia Approach to learning, she began to realize the importance of the “Image of the Child”. This enduring idea is what drives her work with the children as she acknowledges that they are all capable and competent, no matter their age and that by following the child’s own interests, she can provide stimulating opportunities for them to deepen their learning. She strongly believes that in Early Childhood, children learn best through hands-on and first-hand experiences. As a teacher, she demonstrates her love of learning to the children and encourage them to take developmentally appropriate risks and to ask questions. She likes the children in her class to be curious about their learning environments and strongly advocate the use of the outdoor environment to enhance each child’s experiences. It is crucial that we provide a nurturing and supportive learning environment and introduce the idea that school and learning is fun!
