Caren Eigenman and Sue Woodward
Sue’s work with children has spanned 30 years and began first with parenting three sons. In 1994 Sue started a multi-age family child care business which she ran for twelve years. Sue realized that working with young children was a calling that grew through the ECE program at Burnaby Continuing Education. Here Sue gained a deeper love, enthusiasm and joy for a field she feels so fortunate to be immersed in. Sue opened Childgarden Preschool in September 2007. Greatly inspired by the Reggio Emilia philosophy, She strives to operate a preschool of excellence that listens to the children, and motivates learning through an inquiry-based curriculum that is relevant to them in an environment that is stimulating, safe, warm and fun. Sue feels blessed to work with other teachers who share her love for children and commitment to this community. Mentoring ECE students through practicums and offering workshops are a great opportunity to share her passion. Caren has had many years of experience working with children of all ages. Over the last 20 years, Caren has been an Out of School Care supervisor, Preschool teacher, Support teacher, and has owned and operated her own Multi-age Family Childcare facility. Caren has pursued several courses at Capilano University where the Reggio approach is strongly incorporated into the Early Childhood Program as well as participated in many workshops and professional development classes where her passion and drive for her love of working with children is re-ignited again and again. In her spare time, Caren enjoys playing the flute and the piano. Caren ranks as a black belt in karate and has especially enjoyed teaching children’s classes for many years and has also recently completed certification as a children’s yoga instructor.
