Dr. Annabella Cant
Dr. Annabella Cant is a professor in Early Childhood Education at Capilano University and sessional instructor at Simon Fraser University. Annabella received the 2019 Teaching Excellence Award from Capilano University. She is also an invited keynote speaker to many ECCE conferences and events. Annabella sits on the Academic Council of the Centre for Imagination in Research, Culture, and Education. She is also the initiator and editor-in-chief of the online journal: Childhoods and Pedagogies. She has been practicing ECCE since 1994; in 1999 she started opening her own childcare centres in Europe (her schools were dedicated to children with very diverse backgrounds and abilities). She collaborated with a number of orphanages and organizations and welcomed all children. Her newest publication, Unswaddling Pedagogy (2017), is a book for educators and parents. Her new pedagogical lens—the unswaddling pedagogy—is inspired and fueled by the stories she has lived. Her passions are: her family+puppy, running, and creating an inclusive world.
