Caren Eigenman and Sue Woodward
Sue Woodward and Caren Eigenmann are co-owners of Childgarden Preschool & Discoveries in Port Moody, BC, which opened in 2007. Our image of the child aligns with one of the underlying principles of Reggio Emilia, in which we see the child as 'rich in potential, strong, powerful, competent, and most of all connected to adults and other children.' (Malaguzzi, 1993, p.10). Educators work alongside the children and their natural curiosity to observe and develop in-depth investigations that reflect and are built upon authentic interests of the children, making their preschool experience fun, exciting and relevant to them and their world. Educators extend and expand these interests to create deep, meaningful learning opportunities which lay the foundation for future learning. Both Sue and Caren are recipients of the Prime Minister's Award of Excellence in Early Childhood Education, in 2012 and 2017 respectively.
