Over to Shelly…
I love working in early education and care because it is very rewarding when I see the children learning and having fun through our time together. Children learn everything from the people around them, so as an educator, I believe role modelling is very important to support children’s development. I’m always happy to see that there are so many positive influences for the children through our role modelling in their most critical stage of learning and development.
Before I started working in this industry, I always loved being surrounded by children. And in the past 2 years, I have done some holiday programmes with different age groups of children which I really enjoyed it. My friends kept telling me, ”Shelly, you are very good with children!” Through my friends’ encouragement, I realised that working with children is what I am truly passionate about.
When I’m not at Choklits I enjoy spending time with my friends doing all kinds of things such as playing badminton and singing as a group while playing different instruments. I also enjoy cooking and baking for my family and friends.
The cutest thing a child has ever said to me was “You are beautiful just as my mummy”. When I heard that I was very encouraged and comforted, because I believe that he felt comfortable and cared around me, just like he does with his mum!
