Meet our Head of Early Years Centre
Dedicated towards the development of children’s life skills, knowledge and disposition from an early age, Tarra Tanauan comes from the Philippines with over 10 years of experience teaching in Early Childhood Education and Primary Years Education. She envisions early childhood education as a space of fun learning through continuous exploration, spurring of each child’s individuality and strengths through play and expressive communication, supplemented with technology and digital resources to nurture lifelong learners. Tarra also holds a Certificate in Child Development and Family Studies from Pam Arnold,
College, Australia and a Certificate in Nursery Management from Summit International College, Malaysia.
Her wide range of educational experience also includes five years as an International Baccalaureate (IB) educator and two years as a Whole School Curriculum Coordinator. Tarra’s commitment to the field of education was materialised further through her obtaining a Master of Education with a specialisation in Teaching and Learning from Taylor’s University, Malaysia. Having had her Bachelor of Commerce from Centro Escolar University in the Philippines, and majoring in Computer Science and Information System, Tarra also believes in nurturing children towards being global citizens through a 21st century education. “There’s nothing more vital than what we can impart to them during the early years of life, where the best chances and best starts could begin.”
