The Faces of Eden: Elwood Early Childhood Teacher, Buddy

Our people are at the heart of everything we do at Eden Academy. Our passionate educators are essential to providing the highest quality of care that we offer, and they are the ones who shape our identity as a childcare provider.

For Buddy, working as an early childhood teacher (ECT) in the Pre-Kinder room is more than just a job – it is her passion. With a decade of experience and now settling at Eden Academy Elwood, Buddy has found her calling in helping young children learn and grow.

When asked what her favourite part of being an ECT is, Buddy replied, “I love watching the children learn and try new things. I enjoy it when they’re inquisitive and try to make sense of the world around them.” Seeing children’s growth and development is what makes Buddy’s job so fulfilling.

Buddy also takes pride in empowering children to progress in their own learning, “I love that children are always trying new things, and I’m here to help them achieve their milestones and personal goals,” she shared. Even though she has been working in the field for almost a decade, she still loves every minute.

At Eden Academy Elwood, Buddy says she is fortunate to have many excursion opportunities. “I see Eden Academy Elwood as a fantastic place because we have so much on our doorstep, and I love taking the children on excursions as much as possible. Between parks, beaches, and other amenities, we have so many options.” These excursions not only provide children with new experiences but also foster a love for learning.

Buddy loves spending time with friends and family when she’s not at work, reading, and going to the beach. And you can always expect to see her up and dancing because she used to do Irish dancing when she was younger and still uses it as her party trick, especially with the children. “You might see me and the children pretending to be Michael Flatley on St. Patrick’s Day!” she joked.

For Buddy, being an ECT is more than just a career; it’s her passion. Watching children learn and grow, empowering them to reach their milestones and personal goals, and taking them on excursions are just some of the things she loves about her job at Eden Academy Elwood. With years of experience and a love for teaching, she has found her niche and couldn’t imagine doing anything else.
