Kavita Seghal

SENIOR TEACHER

 

discoverytimeheadteacher@gmail.com

Teacher Kavita brings energy, warmth and loads of prior teaching experience to our program.  She got her teaching degree in 2007 in India. Once she completed her degree, she taught grade 8 and 9 for two years; but soon realized that she preferred working with younger children aged 3-6. She has her level 3 Child Supervisor Certificate as well as current CPR training. 

 

She believes that learning through play helps children develop problem solving skills, social skills, collaboration skills and imagination. She believes strongly in the benefits of outdoor play, open-ended messy crafts and reading books that relate to the classroom themes as well as those celebrating diversity, expressing emotions and modelling behaviors such as sharing. 

 

Kavita is a mom to two small children of her own.
