I am Rhydima Deshpande, the principal and a preschool and after school teacher at Play Loft. I have a BA and MA in Early Childhood Education from Ryerson University. As a RECE, I believe that children learn best in the context of engaging hands-on activities and real experiences. My daily focus is to create an inclusive environment where every child is seen as equal and is respected and treated as an independent individual. As Play Loft’s principal my daily responsibility is to ensure that all the teachers are a true testament of Play Loft’s philosophy of learning.
