As a mother of three children (ages 10, 5, and 1) and a former teacher, I recognize the impact of early childhood education. I've spent the past six years gaining a wide range of experience in the childcare field, working in all age groups of early childhood. Before moving to the County I received my Bachelor of Education and taught in British Columbia for three years. I now focus my knowledge and experience on childcare in my home, providing a child led play-based approach because I believe that children learn best by exploring the world around them.
I have done childcare most of my life. I have counted over 110 children that have been with me over my 40 years of experience. I started a family of my own and that is when I started childcare, so I could be with my children more and make an income.
When I moved to PEC I became a childcare provider for Prince Edward Child Daycare Service, now known as the HUB Child & Family Centre. I have seen so many children come and go. My children have grown up and now I get to enjoy the company of my grandchild, as today I care for him. I also adopted two wonderful children and I have three children of my own and two stepchildren. As a grandmother I have three grandchildren and one on the way.
I have been working with the HUB since 2009. I started out at the Picton Centre and then began doing home childcare in 2012, after I had my first child.
I am a Mom of 3 beautiful kiddos.
Childcare is something I have always enjoyed doing and I have been very blessed over the years to watch many little ones, and each one holds a special place in my heart.
We enjoy many activities throughout the day such as yoga, Zumba, craft, circle and story time, lots of play based learning, and outdoor play in our fenced in backyard.
We have healthy snacks and meals that follow Canada's food guide.
I love my job and look forward to many more years of it.
I have worked at The HUB for the past 6 years in various programs throughout, gaining experience in a wide variety of environments with children 0-12. I am also a mom of two young, active boys. Throughout the day, I follow a routine that involves story time, crafts, physical activity, games and indoor and outdoor play-based learning experiences, lead by the children’s interest.
I love what I do and find each day in this field as rewarding as the one before it.
For the first 8 years of my life, my mom ran a home daycare. I formed close friendships with the other kids and every day was an exciting adventure.
Fast forward to now, as a mom of a young toddler, I want nothing more than to see my child thrive and form the same special bonds with other kids like I once did.
Our days will be filled with crafts, storytelling, trips to the local playground, sensory activities, and spending lots of time in the fenced-in backyard.
I love to cook and will be providing healthy snacks and meals, sometimes with the kids participation.
After living in Alberta for 7 years, I’m excited to be back in the County where I grew up and I can’t wait to begin this journey of home childcare.
