2021 Brightwater School Kindergarten Teacher
Hi, my name is Racquel (pronounced Rachel) Potter.
I am a dedicated, experienced, and hard-working Early Childhood Teacher with over 30 years’ experience working with children as an Early Childhood / Kindy Teacher, Educational Leader and Centre Director.
I have been employed at Bella Grace Chancellor Park as a Kindergarten Teacher and Educational Leader for three years. During that time, I have provided quality educational Kindergarten programs that have supported the holistic development of all children through play-based learning.
Play based learning draws from children’s natural desire to engage in experiences based on their interests, strengths and developing skills. When children initiate play, they are more motivated to learn and develop positive dispositions towards learning. Play based learning can assist children to develop lifelong learning skills that will stay with them well beyond the early learning environment.
Other than my love for working with Kindergarten aged children, I enjoy the opportunity to work in partnership with families and communities to provide programs that meet the needs of all children and their families. I pride myself in building reciprocal relationships and being an effective communicator.
I look forward to meeting you all and working with you to provide a fantastic holistic Kindergarten program for your children in 2021.
“Children learn as they play. Most importantly, in play children learn how to learn.” ~ O. Fred Donaldson
