Every individual matters. Every individual has a role to play, every individual makes a difference.

- Jane Goodall
This sums up my journey as a paediatric occupational therapist. It is, to this day, an astonishing rollercoaster ride. “Never a dull day”, I always say. Each child opens my eyes to new windows of discovery and leaves imprints in my life. It’s like suddenly seeing some things you’ve understood all your life but now understanding them in a new way. There were some whose steps are easy to thread and there were some that huge hurdles blocked our paths. But I made sure that we always rally together until they learn to break their falls and see the world as a playground with a huge meadow of possibilities. It maybe a perpetual quest to see things with new eyes but it’s always worth the effort.

Who we are

“An understanding heart is everything in a teacher, and cannot be esteemed highly enough....
The curriculum is so much necessary raw material,
but warmth is the vital element for the growing plant and for the soul of the child."
- Carl Jung (1875 - 1961)
