~Come and Join Our Adventure~
Welcome! I am Lisa Campbell-Erwin, owner and teacher at Hilltop House Preschool, located in Maple Ridge, BC. I am a BC certified elementary school teacher and have taught Kindergarten and Grade 1 for 14 years and have been an ECE educator for 8. Hilltop House Preschool has grown from my respect and admiration of the Reggio philosophy of teaching and my professional desire to spend more natural, self-directed, exploration time with my students.
It is my belief that children learn best through hands on exploration that is created and motivated by their own interests. My job, as their teacher, is to observe, document and listen closely to each child in order to foster and guide their individual learning journey, each day that we are together. The Reggio Emilia Philosophy follows these same beliefs and approaches to working with students in preschool. Please read more in the link above about this amazing philosophy that began in Italy, which inspires me and guides the philosophy of my preschool.
