Meet Our Director Shuyi (Lily) Wu
Shuyi graduated with Early Learning and Child Care Diploma from Bow Valley College in Alberta in 2014. Over the years, Shuyi has had the pleasure of working with children ranging from Infant to School Age. Shuyi says, "I am passionate about helping children learn and grow by exploring nature and the community around them. It is a real joy and extremely rewarding to watch their growth and development on a daily basis.” Based on Shuyi’s diverse background, she speaks Cantonese, Mandarin, English and Spanish. A fun fact about her, she loves to travel, and she has had the amazing opportunity to visit ten countries off her list! Shuyi believes that is important to create a safe and warm environment for ECE setting, it helps children to develop their five domains (social, emotional, physical, cognitive and language). Every child is unique, and as her being one of the educators, she believes that mentoring our children to explore their interests, needs and abilities, and create the best curriculum will lead them to find out their desired path. As per Shuyi’s philosophy, she believes that with her being a leader, she is capable to build a professional team that will provide a high Early Childhood Education standard and give the best experience to our Willowbrae Academy family. Shuyi looks forward to meeting all the children and their families at Willowbrae Academy!
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.
