"Hello my name is Chantel Austin, and I am the supervisor here at Little Bloomers Child Care Centre. I have attended George
Brown College in 2009 and graduated on the dean’s list in 2011. I have been a Registered Childhood Educator for the last 6 years, and worked with children varying in ages from 15 months to 10 years old. I have experience developing curriculum in play-based learning as well as high-scope and emergent curriculum. I love working with children because they inspire me to constantly learn new things, they are always excited to learn and that makes working with them even more enjoyable. When I am not working with children I like to read, travel, and go camping with my ever expanding family. I am excited to be part of this amazing team and change the lives of children every day."
"Enthusiastic, creative, warm, sensitive, trustworthy, simple, patient. Here I am for you and your children.My name is Gabrielle Jacques and I am a RECE. I graduated in Cegep Ste-Foy in Quebec and I just moved to Brampton 2 months ago. So, oui, je parle français! I will speak and sing songs in French to your children so that they can learn this beautiful language. I have learned my English in Manitoba, where I spent a year working in an English school, making and doing French activities with kids. I now have three years of experiences in daycares in Quebec, and I am very excited about having much more in Ontario. Outside of my job, I like to be active and spend time outdoors. I love books, music, breakfasts, blueberries and having good times with the ones I love. It will be a pleasure meeting you and your family!"
"Hey there, my name is Danika Applin. I went to the University of Guelph for Sociology, and I am very interested in child development and mental health. One day, I hope to be working with children who have experienced childhood traumas, perhaps developing new methods of therapy. For the past year, I have worked as an ECEA at the University of Guelph’s Childcare and Learning Centre. Much of my life has been spent in childcare, with a long history of babysitting leading up to the present. I spend a great deal of my time with my niece and nephew, who inspire me every day with their positivity and curiosity. I love spending time outdoors, so when I’m not at work, you can often find me at a beach or on a hiking trail! I also love art and DIY projects. If I can figure out a way to make it, I will! I’ve been told my natural compassion and patience makes me perfect for work with children."
"Hello! My name is Tiana Curtis and I am a recent graduate in the two year Early Childhood Education program. I completed my schooling at Sheridan College in Brampton. I am also first aid and CPR certified. During my schooling I was able to gain hands on experience at three different placement sites where I worked with children 2-4 years of age. I have always loved working with children and knew from a young age that this was the perfect career choice for myself. I also have experience working with school age children through high school co-op. I loved having the opportunity to work with children in varying age groups, as it provided an opportunity for me to experience different levels of growth. As an educator I will observe, teach, and learn from the children. I believe that all children learn in different ways and at their own pace. Therefore I will provide support and care for all children in order to help them succeed. Children are the people of tomorrow, I feel that they are strong and capable of achieving anything they set their minds to."
"Hello, my name is Sheree-Ann Brown and I attended the Dan Roberts College of Health Care, located in Toronto, where I completed my diploma in Early Childcare Assistant (ECA). I am also CPR/First Certified and I have a Food Handler’s Permit. I believe that a rewarding and successful teaching experience is what motivates me to bring my commitment, creativity and dedication to Little Bloomers Child Care Center. The intensive course work and hands on experience in the Early Childhood Program at Dan Roberts College of Health Care has given me the skills and knowledge required of an Early Childhood Assistant. I enjoy working with children of all ages and imparting knowledge on them, and I love learning from them. Children are our future and we should prepare them to be leaders for tomorrow."
