Biography of Winsy Poon

Seeing the smiles on children's faces and knowing that they are happy and being loved is one of the reinforcers and motivators in my life. Having worked in the education field for over 16 years, I have provided professional advice and training for teachers, conducted workshops on child development for parents and caregivers, provided social skill strategies and activities for children at home, as well as learning centers, local and international schools. I publish articles advising on early childhood development in Hong Kong.

I am experienced in different areas of child development with extensive knowledge surrounding behavioral therapy and consultation for children with special learning needs.

Having graduated from Ontario’s York University, I now reside in Hong Kong. I am honored to have the opportunity to work across both Fairchild schools as a founding member. At Fairchild, I continue to deliver professional advisory services to parents, educators and caregivers on children's development. I also construct meaningful educational supports that assist students in their growth and essential skills, plan and advice according to children’s individual needs that are compatible with their holistic life goals. Furthermore, I provide free parent consultations exclusively to the Fairchild community on topics such as children’s development, choice of schooling (local & private), school curriculum emphasis, behavioral/emotional support, sibling issue(s) and special needs support as well as professional referrals.

I believe every child has different strengths and vulnerabilities and each child develops differently. Children are unique with different personalities, and therefore require different kinds of support to meet their individual needs. I always believe that love, passion, care and patience are the keys to understanding our children.
