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!
Ms Narita Momberge
Ms. Narita joins us from a coastal town called Hermanus in South Africa.
She has been a kindergarten teacher for the past 7 years in South Africa, Thailand and most recently at EtonHouse in Hanoi. She’s a very passionate educator and she has always found working with young children to be incredibly rewarding. She especially loves the Reggio-Emilia Approach to teaching and learning, as it has truly made her aware of the immense value of child-led and play-based teaching and learning.
She believes that children are endlessly capable and learn best in an organic way, guided by their own curiosity and interests, which is why she always aims to create a learning environment where children feel safe, happy and loved, but also providing them with opportunities to learn and discover. As an educator, she sees her role as that of nurturer and guide, offering care and encouragement, helping children to grow and develop while having as much fun as possible.
She enjoys any art-related experience and absolutely loves messy- and sensory play, as she thinks it’s such a pleasurable and meaningful way for children to learn. She incorporates a lot of this into her teaching and encourages creative thinking every day. She bring an open mind and positive attitude.

She is a lifelong learner and believes that when working with children, you never stop learning. Each child will educate you in their own way. As a teacher, she enjoys exploring alongside children and supporting them by creating a positive, challenging, and warm classroom environment. She believes that when a child is comfortable in an environment the natural urge for knowledge, exploration, and connection will follow.
Ms Sterre is a naturally social and creative person who enjoys baking, reading, traveling, and practicing yoga.
