Jenny Taylor

For the 2012 – 2013 school year, I will be assisting in the Clover Garden Kindergarten and co-leading the Friday Morning Kinder Care program. Previously, I have been the facilitator for the Saturday Morning Parent and Child Program, an early childhood supply teacher, and a long-time parent at the school. My experience as an educator has included a long summer camp career, occasional work in the public school system, teaching Kindergarten at a private school, graduate work in Education, and Waldorf-inspired home childcare. I was drawn into the wonder, warmth, beauty and activity of the Mulberry community through a prenatal program while pregnant with my first child Arwen, who is now in Grade 4 at Mulberry. Our daughter Cedar attends Grade 1, and our youngest, Ember, is in the Meadow Garden Kindergarten. My husband Ramsey teaches co-operative education with the Hastings Prince Edward District School Board. I bring to the Early Childhood program an affinity for young lives from conception through the early years, my love of children’s music and verse, a strong grounding in educational research, and a belief in the importance of nurturing and supporting the hands, hearts and minds of both young children and their parents. Outside of teaching, I enjoy biking and swimming, reading, making music, good food, and exploring nature in the backyard and wilder places.
