Valentina Casanova

Hi I’m Valentina Casanova and I am from Chile where I did my Degree in Early Childhood. I moved to Australia in 2011 to complete equivalent studies in Early Childhood. I love to encourage children to explore and experience learning and Mount Peter Early Learning certainly facilitates this.

"As a parent the thing about commencing care with my child is a thoughtful transition to care, allowing my child the time to feel safe and secure before being left.  I appreciate staff that consider this as important to reducing anxiety to my child."
