Becky holds a Post Graduate Certificate in Early Childhood, which was awarded from Bath Spa University in the United Kingdom. She has worked in early years settings in a variety of teaching and leadership roles for over ten years.
Becky has been living and working in Singapore since 2012 and joined EtonHouse in August 2014 as a core teacher at EtonHouse Thomson. She then transferred to EtonHouse Nature Pre-School in August 2015, where she continued her role of core teacher alongside a senior teacher position. In 2017, she moved into the role of curriculum coordinator and in January 2020, she stepped into the role of principal.
Becky is a strong advocate for early years education and strongly believes that early childhood is crucial in developing and nurturing a child’s love of learning. Her pedagogy follows an inquiry-based play approach to learning and is influenced by the Reggio-Emilia approach, placing particular emphasis on the ‘Image of the Child’; identifying children as unique, strong and capable individuals and learners.
