Meet our Tui Room teachers

The Tui room is for children aged approximately 2 years up to around 3½ years old. At this age, children begin to play more interactively with their peers. We focus on developing advanced social play skills, such as sharing and turn-taking. The children learn best when they play, explore and discover according to their interests. We create an environment where your child feels loved and safe to explore!

    Hi, my name is Erica. I came from Chengdu, an ancient city in China. I’m one of the teachers in the Tui room. I feel so grateful to work with our awesome teachers and beautiful children at Small Fries! I love working with the two to three-year-old children. I completed a Graduate Diploma in Teaching (Early Childhood Education). I’m passionate about helping children realise their potential! I respect and value children’s differences and follow their interests to support their learning journey. I live with my husband Hao and my son Gordon, who goes to primary school now. I love being in nature. In my spare time, I love spending time at the beach or beside a waterfall with my family.
