Ulrika is an early childhood educator with over 15 years experience working with children. She has a love for outdoor play and believes that all children are mighty learners. She is originally from Sweden but has called Edmonton home for 19 years and lives here with her husband and their two teenage daughters. Growing up she spent endless hours outside climbing trees, exploring the forest and lakes around her, and just finding joy in the small things. Her passion as an educator is to learn and wonder alongside children as they play, take risks, and explore the world around them while also fostering an appreciation and love for the land. Ulrika currently serves EFSS as a co-director with a focus on coordinating weekly programs.
Learning and teaching should not stand in opposite banks and just watch the river flow by, instead they should embark together on a journey down the water. –Loris Malaguzzi
