In her work as an Early Childhood Educator, Ms. Mariko Kado promotes a fun, safe, and welcoming environment for children to learn and grow. Her favourite thing is to watch the children develop and improve their skills day to day. She finds it very rewarding to spend time with these young children and be a part of their learning and first experiences of schooling. Ms Kado originally comes from Japan, and she feels her background influences her work in Junior Kindergarten where she incorporates cultural materials, activities, language and perspectives. Ms. Kado was first introduced to St. Margaret's as a practicum student and was so impressed with the positive learning environment that she is pleased to be able to return here to continue her work as a teacher.
