Hailing from Japan, Yu Kanazawa studied early childhood education in Kobe and completed her bachelor’s degree in 2015. The same year, Yu moved to Canada for further education in the field of early childhood education. After studying at Seneca College in Toronto, she joined the Toronto Waldorf School as an RECE in a toddler room in 2018. One of the reasons Yu moved to Canada was to explore her passion for learning the Canadian approach to Waldorf education so that she can contribute her working experiences both in Japan and Canada in the Waldorf childcare community.
