Dipika Agrawal

Curriculum Coordinator

My name is Dipika and I have worked within the early childhood industry for over 6 years, which has provided me with a profound understanding, knowledge and extensive experience.

I am a strong believer in play-based activities, as they empower children to bring their ideas to life and express themselves fully. Additionally, I encourage children to voice their thoughts and opinions to embrace their unique qualities. Families play an integral role in a child’s journey and I am committed to building strong partnerships with them.

As a Curriculum Coordinator, my goal is to inspire a love for learning and help educators reach their full potential through education. I firmly believe that a well-structured curriculum is essential for children’s education.

Together as a community, we can create a nurturing environment where children thrive, families are actively engaged, and education flourishes.
