Hello I’m Ms Ziniira and. I am the lead teacher/Supervisor here at CDO. I’m a George Brown graduate from the Early Childhood Education program in Ontario. Throughout the years, I’ve had the privilege in working between both provinces of Ontario and Alberta. I have tons of experience working with all the age groups, the youngest being 8 weeks up to 12 years of age.
My passion with working with children began back in high school when I used to volunteer at summer day camps. I instantly knew would be in the childcare field.
My philosophy is child-centered learning through play. I believe in this because, learning through play is a natural process for children. They do this every day by making connections and testing theories as they interact with their world. I believe that children thrive in programs that engage their curiosity and nurture their sense of self.
Outside of work , I love spending time with my beautiful daughter, going for walks, cooking and working out.
I cannot wait to get to know you and your little ones. Thank you for letting me be part of their early years!
In Ukraine, I finished Pedagogical University, and worked as an Art Teacher for 16 years. Art is still a big part of my life. In my free time I like to paint, and visit local galleries and festivals.
Since I moved to Canada, I started working in a Day Care and enrolled in Early Childhood Education program. I worked in many different Day Cares and programs for Children with Special Needs. I successfully completed my Early Childhood Education program.
I have been teaching at Children’s Day Out for five years. I am so happy to be working in this unique program.
