Little Green Dragons

For children 3.5 to 4.5 years of age.

 

The Little “Green” Dragons classroom is painted a luscious lime which represents nature, health, and our eco-system. It creates a calm and relaxed learning atmosphere. Green can also filter negativity, which puts students and teachers at ease and into a positive state of mind.

 

The color green promotes a sense of peace, harmony, renewal, youth and generosity.

She worked with many families in a diverse community and feels extremely grateful for the fellow educators who guided her in the journey of child development.

 

Ms. Doris believes children develop and learn from hands-on experiences and meaningful interactions. She practices strategies that facilitate confidence, foster independence, and guide them into a positive self-mindset.

Ms. Nickasha is from the beautiful island of Trinidad and Tobago. She has been an educator for thirteen years working in the field of Early Childhood Education and Elementary Education. Currently, Nickasha holds a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology from The University of California (Dominguez Hills) and completed field work and received an associate degree in Early Childhood Education from Santa Monica College. 

 

As an educator, she strongly believes that developing a routine from an early age helps build consistency and independence and that children grow with guidance and develop a strong sense of self and autonomy in environments set up for safe intentional exploration and learning experiences.
