Sarah Polson-Brown

Graduating with honours from Murdoch University, Sarah completed a degree in primary education, specialising in early childhood development. While at university Sarah received the prestigious Vice Chancellor’s Commendation for Academic Excellence, awarded to students that place in the top 2% of their bachelor degree.

Prior to Sarah’s initial appointment as an educator at BPCS she accrued two years’ experience working full time as a teaching intern while completing her final years of study. During Sarah’s internship at BPCS she developed an understanding of the school’s progressive approach to education cultivating a teaching philosophy inspired by the theory of social constructivism and the practice of educators in Reggio Emilia.

Sarah is a devoted educator with many research interests, specifically within the early years of child development. Professionally, Sarah seeks to nurture the holistic development of every student through child-centred learning, play and exploration. At BPCS Sarah has found a team of world-class educators who share and support her desire to develop creative, autonomous life-long learners of the 21st century.

“Stand aside for a while and leave room for learning, observe carefully what children do, and then, if you have understood well, perhaps teaching will be different from before.

Creativity becomes more visible when adults try to be more attentive to the cognitive processes of children than to the results they achieve in various fields of doing and understanding.”
