ABOUT ELSA PEREZ

Elsa Perez is an Early Childhood Consultant by profession. She is also a speaker, presenter, and author.

For more than 30 years, Elsa has worked with educators and parents across the Greater Toronto Area providing valuable information to help them develop programs, regulations, and public policies that will enhance or improve both access to and the quality of early care and education. She holds a diploma in Early Childhood Education from George Brown College, and a certificate for Early Childhood Education - Advance Studies in Special Needs with honours from Humber College, as well as the Autism Spectrum Disorder certificate from Seneca College.

Inspired by iconic figures such as Mahatma Gandhi, Nelson Mandela, and James Baldwin, Elsa is proud of her black heritage and is sincere about supporting the black community and helping people to thrive. Xenophobia, racism, and prejudices are all learned behaviours that can be changed if one chooses. She believes that acceptance of people begins from within and then is taught through resources and personal experience.

When I first started to think about the book series, “The World I live In,” I wanted to focus on topics that were relevant in our society. When taught to young children, diversity, equity, and inclusion must be explained in a way they can understand. The solution that kept coming to mind was the idea that we are all different, but we’re basically all the same on the inside. I am absolutely thrilled by how this small idea has translated into a worthwhile educational resource educators and parents can use with their preschoolers.

The creative arts has always been a passion for Elsa. In her spare time, she enjoys painting and gardening. She has now expanded her skills to include authoring The World I Live In: We Are All Human, the first in her book series aimed at preschoolers.

Elsa is a mother of two daughters, has twin granddaughters, Harley and Arya, and lives in Ontario, Canada.
