The first 12 years of a child’s life are foundational in creating the morals, values, and self-esteem they will carry with them for the rest of their lives. Providing a safe creative and nurturing environment for children to explore, create and discover who they are and who they long to become has always been my passion. We are all a hidden treasure longing to be known and every child deserves to be seen that way and be appreciated and loved for exactly who they are. It is Chelsey’s life mission to allow exactly that.
She began her journey with children working youth summer camps where she learned a foundational relationship to learning through play, community, and nature. Chelsey then continued in an integrative environment for children with special needs where again a foundation of community and play was deeply rooted in the progress of each child and the community. Having a background in Montessori teaching where children are encouraged to learn through natural play and self-exploration, the deep need and importance of leadership and self-ignition became paramount for a child to truly understand and treasure who they are. After a foundation of learning with younger children, she came to love the passion and creativity school-age children have. The way they allow themselves to truly explore and allow their inner selves to blossom.
“I am proud to say I have committed the last 15 years to working with school age children and excited my journey has led me to work and lead with the children, families, and team at TOPP KIDS.”
