Olivia Mackinnon
Early education childcarer

Hello!

My name is Olivia I am the early education childcarer for the Hedgehogs group! I'm 22 from the United States and i study Early Childhood Education at Department of Teacher Education in Rauma and i have a Vocational Qualification from the United States in Teacher education. I believe that all children have the potentional to grow and develop into wonderful people.

In the Happy Hedgehogs group the children learn to be more independent, getting dressed and undressed by themselves and helping with small tasks in the classroom. They develop self-awareness, self-concept, and are introduced to cultural and language awareness.

They participate in activities that develop team work and social skills, and focus on improving their fine and gross motor skills in preparation for their preschool year.

The English language is taught through songs, daily routines, morning circle, weekly topics, learning stations, gym, art, and music. English is introduced to the children through the use of simple instructions, phrases and vocabulary. This group has personality, is always up for a good challenge, and is, of course, a very happy group!
