Whole Child Education

Jacqueline Speer believes young children are fundamentally competent and capable. This firm belief has carried Jacqueline through bachelor’s and master’s degrees in early childhood education, and has been validated repeatedly in every classroom she has entered, whether in Melbourne, Hangzhou or Shanghai. After years of leading kindergartens in the international and bilingual school sector, this belief has shaped Jacqueline’s vision of an authentically responsive curriculum that views the ideas, thoughts and theories of children as intrinsically worthy and deserving of investigation.
