A s the el­dest of five chil­dren, Bibi Gol­berg had plenty of prac­tice look­ing af­ter kids. She was of­ten re­spon­si­ble for look­ing af­ter her younger sib­lings and their friends. “I used to ‘run’ my own school with fun ac­tiv­i­ties for them,” she says. “This love of ed­u­cat­ing young chil­dren never left me.” Fast for­ward to present day, and she now has over three decades of ex­pe­ri­ence as an early child­hood ed­u­ca­tor. Just un­der half of those years have been spent at Tem­ple Si­nai Nurs­ery School. The school prides it­self on in­te­grat­ing chil­dren with spe­cial needs into the school com­mu­nity, and one of Gol­berg’s proud­est mo­ments at the school came when she wit­nessed the chil­dren sup­port­ing and cheer­ing loudly as their friend took steps for the first time with­out a walker. Gol­berg also says that col­lab­o­ra­tion between the par­ents and teach­ers is nec­es­sary for ev­ery child to suc­ceed. “I be­lieve that young chil­dren thrive when their teach­ers and par­ents are part­ners. Our close con­nec­tions al­low par­ents to give us in­sight into their child’s life,” she says. “As early child­hood ed­u­ca­tors we share valu­able in­for­ma­tion on all as­pects of child devel­op­ment. As a coop it is easy to achieve this as we play, learn and grow

to­gether.”
