Hi, I'm Yuka!

I am a certified teacher of play-based Early Childhood Education and mother of two children. ​I let children use my face as a canvas and love messy process art and creative play!

 Early in my motherhood experience,  I decided to learn as much as possible about how little humans think, play and develop.  My education on the subject was so intriguing and compelling to me that I decided to become a preschool teacher.  Through exploring the property around our home with my own children, I discovered my true calling: to share this world of curiosity, awe, and holistic growth with other families. Innovating play-based philosophy to open the minds of children is the delight of my life. I believe that this is my purpose, and I take enormous joy in fulfilling this purpose.

We jump on every opportunity to participate in Ms.Yuka’s class! My 2.5yo has blossomed since attending. Ms.Yuka does an incredible job engaging the kids and creating an atmosphere so captivating our son doesn't even realize how much he's learning and developing new skills. It is always a new and exciting experience!
