Back to Who We are

Biography of Kadhija Shiraz

I am from Colombo, Sri Lanka and moved to Hong Kong in December 2017 due to my husband’s job. I am a qualified Montessori teacher and also hold diplomas in early childhood education, childcare management and child psychology. I have been working as a teacher in a Montessori school in Colombo for the past 5 years, and worked as the Form Co-Ordinator for children aged 3 -4 and 4 - 5 years of age.

From a very young age I have always enjoyed spending time with young children and having 2 young nieces who I spent a lot of time with, I knew that my heart was set on being a teacher.

For me teaching young children is the most rewarding profession as you tend to make a difference in the lives of young children – even when you don’t realize it.

I joined Fairchild Kindergarten within 2 months of moving to Hong Kong and am fascinated with the Reggio approach to education - I believe that learning should be fun. I am thrilled to be a part of the Fairchild team!

In my spare time, I enjoy travelling and trying new cuisines from around the world.
