Principal of Lil Ones
I started working with young children during my teenage years by providing after school tutoring service. While waiting for my pre-university academic results, I worked in a kindergarten and a primary school. All these experiences gradually mould my love and passion of working with children. After obtaining my Bachelor of Science in Economics and spending 5 years in the banking industry, I found myself constantly revisiting my passion and love when working with children. I was missing the joy of working with children.
With a new goal in mind, I left the banking industry and pursued my dream job in Year 2000. I worked in a well-known and established kindergarten in the Klang Valley and was assigned as the principal for a period of 10 years. After delivering my youngest child, I was also managing an infant care centre during second half of the day which cares for babies as young and tender as 3 months old.
I was fascinated with Dr. Maria Montessori teachings and used the method to apply in my teachings. I can see significant progress in children from all walks of lives especially children with learning difficulties. This observation and experience motivated me to take up The International Diploma In Montessori Pedagogy from the Montessori Centre International.
Then in Year 2013, I joined Lil’ Ones Montessori Preschool as a Principal. I am truly blessed with a loving, experienced and united team of teachers who have hearts and love for children. We believe in preparing a stimulating environment that aids our children in developing an excellent foundation for happy and life long learners. The journey as an educator and coach has been truly inspiring and rewarding. I continue looking forward to a nurturing, fruitful and happy learning experience with all our little ones.

“When I was pursing my studies in Bachelor’s Degree in Clinical Psychology in Taiwan, I read a lot of researches on the thesis of “There is no doubt that early experience influences later development.” Therefore, I strongly believe that in order to maintain an individual’s mental health, you have to start developing and nurturing the individual during his/her childhood years. As a result of my belief, I dedicated myself into children development work. I know that by giving a positive developmental environment and education will have a positive impact to a child’s development growth. My passion in teaching young children is beyond my imagination when I began to witness the positive progress of the child’s development. The outcome is very rewarding and I can’t stop enjoying the positive results of seeing children’s development and growth. I am “addicted” to this rewarding experience in teaching. The experience is like planting a seed in good soil, nurturing it and hoping that it will flourish one day. Subsequently, I love and enjoy the process of “planting the seed”. No matter what the outcome is, the process of nurturing must be conducted with love, hope and passion.”
