Nayer Zia was born and raised in Hong Kong. She graduated from Middlesex University, UK in 2016 with a Bachelor Degree in Early Childhood Education(ECE). She has been in the early childhood education field for over 13 years. Her keen interest in working with children began with her experiences of her two beautiful babies. Becoming a mother motivated her to learn more about the different rhythms in early childhood and how children encounter the world. Her goal is to support children and ECE students in their unique learning journeys. ECE students are capable and competent, and she wants to nurture their “playful” experiences. Her hobbies include reading, cooking, travelling, exercising and meditating.
