"Hello! My name is Amanda.
I work as a team lead in the mornings at our 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 highly trained childcare educator, I am also a dance teacher trained and certified in many different genres. I also hold all 4 certifications in Intellidance.

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!"

"Hello! My name is Chase, and  I am an early childhood educator her at RSOSC.

I joined the penguin room in October 2021 and occasionally work in the other rooms where I am needed. I received my Bachelor of Science in Human Ecology with specialisation in Child and Youth Development in 2021 from the University of Alberta. At the same time, I got my Child Care Certificate Level 2. I have my standard first aid and CPR level B as well as my childcare first aid. Working with kids has always been my passion. I focus on making sure children have their emotional needs met in order to create a positive and open environment. Giving children the skills and opportunities to express themselves and work through their problems are important in my practice. I want to make sure each child feels heard and valued as individuals. I love playing imagination games, getting messy, doing all kinds of crafts and singing songs with the children. When I am not in RSOSC, I'm at home with my cat, lady and my partner. I like singing, painting, crocheting and going bike riding. 

Let's have fun Together!"
