Ms. Vivian is the founder of Viv’s Schoolhouse. She believes that strong early foundations are essential in nurturing confident and curious learners beyond just the early years; these foundations will pave the path to future development and set the right attitude towards lifelong learning.
After extensive studies on different pedagogies, Ms. Vivian regards experiential learning as the most effective way to educate children. She believes that when children are taught using a hands-on approach, they will be wholly engaged in their learning experiences. Children’s different senses are involved during such a learning process where their sense of sight, hearing, taste, smell, and touch are stimulated. This results in the strengthening of neural connections in children’s brains and allows their learning experiences to be anchored in firmly in their minds. Most importantly, children find greater joy and meaning in the knowledge that they acquire when learning through experience.
Ms. Vivian holds a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor and a Diploma in Early Childhood Care and Education – Teaching from Seed Institute.
