Early Childhood Educator

Hi, my name is Huda and I graduated with my diploma in Early childhood education in 2017 and have been working in the field ever since. My passion for working with children grows with me everyday as the children continuously inspire me to enhance my skills as an early childhood educator. My aspiration for making a difference in the lives of children is what brought me into this field and I accomplish this everyday by creating an atmosphere that supports all the children’s needs and desires. As an early childhood educator I am fulfilling my purpose everyday and that is what makes my job so rewarding. At Creative Explorers Childcare, I hope to work closely with the parents so that together we can help their child to not only succeed in the present but in their future lives. Besides being an Early childhood educator, I am also a very active person as I enjoyed participating in outdoor activities that include hiking, biking, long walks and going to the gym. Even though I live a fairly healthy lifestyle, once in a while I like to enjoy two of my favorite foods; pizza and minni egg chocolates.
