Our teachers play an important role in communicating, modelling, and overseeing our program’s core values. We are proud of the teachers that work with your children. Let us introduce the stars of Children’s Day Out…

 

Alysha

Hello everyone,
This will be my first year teaching at CDO but my third year teaching Preschool. I love preschool and all the exploring, learning and fun we get to have.
I have my Diploma in Early Learning and Childcare from NorQuest College and I like to keep up to date on new research and workshops. I grew up in all different parts of BC but have settled down here in Edmonton Alberta with my Fiancé and two dogs (Bowser and Daisy)
I am so excited to be your new teacher, I can’t wait to learn and grow with you.

Nadine

I was born and raised right here in Edmonton, Alberta. I knew from a young age (preschool) that I wanted to be a teacher. I attended the University of Alberta and graduated with an Education Degree, specializing in Early Childhood. I struggled with finding employment within my first few years, but ended up putting my degree to use Teaching Computer Courses to Adults at CDI College until my first child was born. After that I became a permanent Stay-At-Home Mother, and more recently joined CDO as a Substitute Teacher. I am excited to have the opportunity to be here Part-Time this year as an Admin/Support Teacher!

When I am not at school, I enjoy spending time with my Husband, Craig, and our 2 children, Hannah (14) and Cody (12), and a house full of Pets (2 Dogs, 1 cat, 1 Bunny, 2 Lovebirds, 1 Conure (bird) and plenty Salt water fish). I enjoying spending summer weekends camping at our lake, and evenings knitting, crocheting or sewing. My hobbies and family keep me busy!

Liliana

I was born in Ukraine, and moved to Canada 14 years ago with my daughter.

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 two years. I am so happy to be working in this unique program.

Anne Marie

My name is Anne Marie and I have been working part time for Children’s Day Out for about a year now. I was a full-time nanny for a little boy while attending Grant MacEwan’s Human Resources program. After working in the HR field for a short time, I found myself again wanting to work with children. I am so happy to have found a place at CDO. My time here is divided between assisting with the children and tackling the administrative work. I so enjoy getting to know the children and their families. I do have children of my own and in my personal time I can be found at various lacrosse rinks, watching my daughter horseback ride and volunteering at their school. I enjoy gardening, knitting, reading, cooking and going to concerts or any form of live theatre. One of my favorite pastimes is exploring used bookstores and new restaurants around Edmonton with my husband.
