Taryn Thorne

Taryn Thorne

Early Years Teacher

Taryn Thorne was born and raised in sunny South Africa where she completed her undergraduate studies. She began her education career teaching English as a Second Language to children in Hong Kong. Her work with young children motivated Taryn to study a Postgraduate Certificate in Education specializing in Early Years. During her eight years in Hong Kong, Taryn had the privilege of working in various teaching and management roles from curriculum design, teacher recruitment and development as well as human resources. Before moving to Dublin, Taryn worked both as a teacher and as part of the management team for a Reggio Emilia inspired international pre-school in Hong Kong.  

Every day is an adventure of learning in Taryn's classroom as she encourages her students to explore, ask questions, reflect, and hypothesize about the world around them. She believes that children learn best when provided with a variety of experiences through which they can explore their own interests and build upon their prior knowledge and skills. Through a respectful and inspiring approach, she hopes to nurture her students’ curiosity, confidence and a love of learning. 

Taryn is a qualified adult and children's yoga teacher who enjoys sharing this passion with her students. She also loves the outdoors and can be found hiking, jogging and swimming during her free time. As a lifelong learner herself, Taryn is currently completing her Postgraduate Certificate in Play Therapy. She is excited to share her love of learning with her students.
