Star Room

Star Room Teacher

Philosophy: “I believe that when teaching young children it is important to provide a consistent routine that offers them predictability and security. I believe the activities we engage the children in need to be developmentally appropriate and appealing. Children learn so much from playing and they need to be allowed to make appropriate choices that will lead them to their own discoveries about their environment.”

Credentials: Karla has been a childcare provider since 1996 and is a fully licensed preschool teacher. She joined Daisy in 2004 and is the Head Teacher in Star Room. In addition to her work experience, Karla has taken classes in Early Childhood Development at Merritt College.

Star Room Teacher

Philosophy: I believe that children learn through play. This is how they make sense of the world around them. Children are very spontaneous, creative, and honest in their feelings. I believe that children also need appropriate limits, as well as a routine which provides predictability throughout their day. Teachers need to support them to express themselves, and interact with their peers in acceptable ways.
