About Me

My name is Erin Baker, and I'm an Early Childhood Teacher and parent in Sydney, Australia. I live in the Inner West with my partner, my toddler daughter and newborn son.

I was in the photography world before realising my true passion lay in being with young children. I completed my Masters of Teaching (Early Childhood) from Sydney University in 2014 and began working in a long day care service shortly after. The career change was one of the best decisions of my life, and it was in my first role as Nursery Room Leader that I found my calling, and my adoration of caring for and educating the youngest children was born. 

 

I have since been lucky enough to partake in training provided by pedagogues from the Pikler Institute in Hungary. Dr Emmi Pikler's method for childcare has greatly influenced my approach to young children. 

 

 

The under three age group is now firmly my passion, and although I still adore working with children, I feel my most important role is to help educate other educators and parents and empower those with the most crucial job of all- caring for and educating our children.
