I’m Kerry-lee the Little Bean Grade 0000 teacher.
I have been a foundation phase teacher since 1997 when I started as an assistant teacher for Cotlands Baby Sanctuary, after which a year later I was given my own class. I hold a Cub Warrent through the S.A scouting movement and am qualified to teach children with Dyslexia and learning disabilities.
I have always enjoyed teaching the 0000 class as it is where children are beginning their formal education and have a curiosity and excitement for all that is presented to them. They see their world through innocent eyes and everything holds wonder and intrigue.
As a teacher it is my privilege to guide them and provide new and exciting stimuli, to expand their understanding, vocabulary, to teach them how to build friendships and work with them to become a little more independent. To give them the confidence to try new things and to hold their hands when they are feeling unsure.
Starting in the grade 0000 can be a little daunting for new parents and children alike and I would like to assure all new parents that we take great care in watching over your precious bundles of joy.
My classroom has an open door policy and it is important that you feel free to come in and talk about any concerns you may have or share stories about your little one. It’s important that we as teacher and parents create an open communication channel to ensure that both you and your little ones have a great experience throughout the year. Schooling is important and I want to ensure that it is a happy beginning.
I am a very creative being and enjoy been involved in activities like painting, mosaic and card making. I studied interior decorating and aromatherapy and spend time making soaps, creams and oil blends. I enjoy learning new things and have quite an adventurous side, and I enjoy travel. I am a mother to two boys and have had the pleasure of watching them grow and seeing their achievements. So, I understand how important it is to you to enjoy the same.
I look forward to meeting you and being a part of your child’s growth and development.
