- Early Childhood Nap Room Assistant
Yukako is excited to be joining the Early Childhood program. She was born in Japan and as a student there studied Psychology in college. She is currently enrolled in a handwork program and she will graduate next Spring from Sunbridge College-New York with Waldorf handwork teacher training in Fiber Crafts. Yukako has already taught at Chicago Waldorf School as a Parent-Child class assistant last year. Additionally she worked with children in a forest program at a Japanese preschool before coming to Chicago where she continues that forest program with Chicago preschoolers. Yukako has two children who are currently in the 3rd and 5th grade, so she also enjoys the experience of Waldorf education as a parent in the school.
