Meet Our Director Yunhye (Eunice) Lee
Eunice graduated from University in South Korea and obtained a degree in Early Childhood Education and child welfare. After she graduated, she moved to Canada in 2012 and went into Capilano University and obtained a Diploma in Early Childhood Care and Education. Eunice really enjoyed learning the difference between Korea and Canada’s curriculums which made her keep wondering and learning the new aspect of Canada’s Early Childhood Education. She has worked with all different age groups, and really enjoys every moment of being with a child. One of her philosophies that she loves the most is that grown-ups can still learn a lot from children. Eunice also has a lot of things that children have taught her which she will never forget. She loves to create an environment for children where they will have as many opportunities to discover the world around them, learn through play, as well as express themselves just the way they are. She believes it also positively impacts parent’s feeling safe and secure to leave their child in the Academy on a daily basis as well as create a place where employees can be happy to come to work with children. Eunice have been working at Willowbrae Academy since March 2017 as an early childhood educator and moved up to her Director role and is very excited to continue to grow her career with Willowbrae Academy families with all children, families, and employees.
Pre school Room
Infancy is a wondrous period of growth and exploration. Our infant programs focus on building meaningful relationships with our families, built on trust, care and attention. By recognizing and acknowledging the needs of each individual child, infants feel secure and safe in their environment and thus creates a strong foundation to support the rapidly developing social, emotional and physical needs of infants while they explore the world around them.
While the focus is still largely on their primary care, toddlers begin to take their first steps towards greater independence. We promote their development through play and natural exploration of their surroundings. We begin to lay the basis for positive social interaction and support their positive relationships with peers. We focus on using our words, being gentle with our friends, sharing, and turn taking.
Pre-school rooms are equipped with age and developmentally appropriate learning materials and activities reflect the interests of the group and are often child directed. We encourage and promote positive social interaction and develop the many tools necessary to ensure a positive transition to “big” school and a lifelong love of learning.
