“My name is Kyra! I am very excited to be joining the morning staff as a Child Development Assistant. I hold a degree in Environmental Sciences from the University of Alberta and previously worked as an Environmental Educator at the Muttart Conservatory and the John Janzen Nature Center. I love being outside and going on long nature walks. In 2018 I headed to Northern B.C. where I taught Kindergarten. I quickly realized that teaching was my passionate and returned to Edmonton to begin an after degree in Elementary Education at the Kings University. I believe so much can be learned through play and that every child has the potential to succeed. My favourite quote is “the flowers of tomorrow are the seeds of today”.

"Hi! My name is Amanda. I work in the mornings at out ELC location, although I do move between both our locations when I am needed. I've been working at RSOSC since 2015 and have my Childcare Development Worker Certificate (level 2). In addition to being a childcare educator, I am also a dance teacher with training in many different genres. I know from my childhood experiences that trusting the people your parents leave you with is crucial to enjoying your time somewhere unfamiliar. Being someone that children can rely on and trust is my main focus as a childcare educator. One of my favourite things about working with children is being involved in their growth. Watching children’s eyes as they light up when they learn and accomplish new skills, is the best reward.
I can't wait to meet you!"
