Miranda Wu, B.A., RECE - Supervisor
I specialize in child development, program evaluation and pedagogical leadership by integrating theory and practice. As an advocate for innovative and inclusive education, I am committed to supporting children in active learning through exploration, play and inquiry. Children thrive in programs where they and their families are valued as active participants and contributors.
My passion is to explore the relationship between curriculum, pedagogy and progression in learning. I am motivated to understand how relationships impact learning while supporting children develop engagement and a sense of belonging.
I have 8 years of experience working in non-profit child care centers in various roles, including Registered Early Childhood Educator, Child Care Supervisor as well as co-op experience as a Resource Consultant supporting children with developmental challenges.
I hold a Bachelor of Arts in Early Childhood Studies from Ryerson University, and I am currently completing my Master of Education in Developmental Psychology and Education at the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education. During my leisure time, I enjoy horseback riding, dog fostering and floral designing.
I look forward to making a positive impact on the Jackman community!
