Ms. Lola Lai
Lola grew up in Singapore and embarked on her life-long journey of working with children there. After nearly two decades of being raised and educated in the Singapore’s local system, she began to search for neoteric and more effective education pedagogies. Subsequently after she qualified as an Early Years educator and being in the field for a few years, she dived into another passion of hers; wildlife conservation and safari guiding. It was in South Africa and Mozambique where she was tremendously inspired by Reggio Emilia’s teachings as she worked with the local children with no formal school compounds nor your typical day-to-day learning equipment. They learnt and worked with river clay as play dough, porcupines’ quills and impala dung as counters. Thereafter, she travelled and worked with children in Cambodia and Turkey. She strongly believes in developing the child as a holistic individual being and she is incredibly excited to be collaborating and growing with your child. She has an incredible passion and she pinky promise that she will try build your child’s self-esteem, inspire creativity, motivate learning and foster your child’s sense of wonder to lead to a solid foundation in his/ her life-long learning journey. If you speak to her about ethology, entomology, scuba diving and road-trips on the less-beaten tracks, she gets astonishingly excited!
