About your host

Hi, I'm Edwina

I’m a passionate and experienced early childhood educator who understands the frustrations and aspirations of those that yearn for change. 

I’ve witnessed first hand the transformative power of inquiry-based learning, yet I know all too well the struggles that come with trying to integrate it into a classroom setting.

That’s why I’m here – to serve as a guide, and a companion on your journey towards reimagining education and unlocking the boundless potential of your students.

Here at Blooming Curious and through my blog Ed’s Lessons, I’m on a mission to help educators go from overwhelmed and confused about how to integrate inquiry-based learning to spark curiosity in young children, to being confident, knowledgeable and passionate about creating experiences that help kids feel excited, curious and confident in their learning…all while meeting curriculum demands and keeping stakeholders happy!
