Meet the Director
Kajal Bhagia is Kepler Academy Westwind’s Centre Director. Shed holds a Master’s in Education from the University of Ottawa, with a specialization in Teaching and Learning, and has 22 years of experience in Early Childhood Education. Kajal is an instructor for Norquest College, teaching their Early Learning and Child Care Diploma and Certificate Program. She strongly believes that every child is born with unique skills and abilities, and it is the responsibility of educators and parents to provide them with a wide variety of learning experiences, so that they can navigate their way to reach their optimal potential.
Kajal’s approach to childcare is heavily influenced by Maslow’s theory of hierarchical needs, as well as Howard Gardner’s theory of multiple intelligences. These emphasize that only when a person’s basic needs of food, clothing, shelter, love, safety, and security are met, can they move on to achieving their full potential. Children learn through a variety of different methods, such as visually, logically, musically, linguistically etc. “Every child is unique; they just unwrap their packages at different times.” (Unknown)
Born and raised in India, Kajal has strong memories of playing and learning in her natural surroundings. She strives to provide the same home-like atmosphere at Kepler, where children can learn and explore in a stress-free environment. Kajal has spent over 12 years living in Spruce Grove and is looking forward to serving the families and children of the community. In her free time, she likes to try her hand at cooking recipes from various cuisines, travelling with her family, and reading about the current trends in Early Childhood Education.
