Day in the life of an Early Childhood Educator
I am an administrative assistant for EarlyON SEC. I am so happy and thrilled to work and be part of a great passionate, enthusiastic, and diverse team whom I learn a lot from them. I love kids and it is such a blessing for me to be able to see families with their loved ones at our centres. I do believe that family is a microcosm of the world, and children are the most precious treasure a community can possess, for in them are the promise and guarantee of the future. I love music, long walks, and art of any sort!
With my previous experience as a High School Educator, I discovered that early childhood experiences have lifelong impacts; therefore, it is important to lay a positive foundation for children’s growth and development. As an early Learning Specialist, however, I endeavour to provide a safe, nurturing, supportive, and inclusive environment, where children and their families feel a deep sense of belonging and are able to reach their full potential.
I am an Early Learning Specialist here at EarlyON Child & Family Centre. I have a passion for working with families, and I hope to enrich the development of the young children that come into our centres. I enjoy travelling to hot destinations in the winter and I love attending to my garden in the summer.
My mission as a part of the Early Years team is to provide constant support to families and caregivers, as well as encourage families to provide children with a sense of belonging in every aspect of their life. I strive to provide a nurturing and safe space for all children that participate in our programs. When I think of EarlyON, I think of the collaborative, natural, and unique approaches to learning for each and every child. Throughout my professional career, I have come to understand the importance of healthy early development, and its relationship with lifelong learning, behavior and health. I enjoy spending my spare time with my family and fur babies.
I am an administrative assistant here at EarlyON. I love being able to help others in any way that I can. I love to smile, as a smile can do many things. A smile makes you feel welcome or just enhances your day. I am crazy about sparkles. Whether it is my jewelry or clothes, something always sparkles about me. I am delighted to be a wife and mother. Unfortunately for my husband, I am a shopper and he doesn’t like the bills. I enjoy being lost in a book. or diamond painting in my spare time.
Hi, my name is Isabella and I am an Early Learning Specialist at EarlyON. I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology and also studied Education, where my passion for teaching and helping others developed. The best part of working with children is being able to see them achieve milestones and being a part of the process of their learning and development. Children at a young age are like sponges, they are constantly absorbing knowledge and have many ideas. At EarlyON, I am proud to create a space where children can express themselves and learn in their own unique ways. In my free time, I enjoy photography, baking, and spending time with my loved ones.
I am an early learning specialist at EarlyON. I believe that all children should be inspired to discover their natural curiosity about the world around them. They have unlimited possibilities and a hundred ways of thinking, playing, and speaking. I see myself as a facilitator, researcher, and co-learner with children and families. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my kids, photographing, reading, and gardening.
When I think of “Families”, I think of Parents, Caregivers, Grandparents and Children. When I think of “Communities”, I think of Partnerships, Outdoors, Nature, Beauty and Life. When I think of EarlyON, I see Staff, Families and Community…. what do you see? In my spare time, I enjoy outdoors and its beauty. I enjoy staying connected with family and friends but I especially enjoy baking cakes and “Eating them”.
As an Early Learning Specialist at EarlyON, I do my best to support children and families in creating a safe, inclusive and diverse learning environment. I have been learning English because my first language is Mandarin. I am working on updating my educational skills so I can share this knowledge with families in our programs. In my spare time I enjoy learning about psychology. I also enjoy travelling with my family and friends, and watching live TV shows!
I am a primary school teacher from Ukraine. Working with children, I help them discover the beauty of the world around them and instilled the skills of coexistence in society. I believe that all children are different, however, you can find the key to each child only with the help of kindness and love. In my free time, my children and I like to play in parks, near the lake and visit museums and theaters.
As an Early Learning Specialist with EarlyON SEC, I am enthusiastic to support all families and children in a warm and positive atmosphere, as well as facilitate learning, provide support, share resources, and expand possibilities. I am excited to gain new knowledge through hands on experience. In my spare time, I enjoy travelling, cooking healthy food and reading great books to help children have a healthy lifestyle and reach their best potential.
As a member of the EarlyON team, my goal is to ensure that children, families and the community all have a safe and inclusive environment that strengthens their learning. Some of the most important years of a child’s life are the early years and we are here to support families to have their child reach their full potential. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with family, baking treats and travelling to new destinations.
I am currently an Early Learning Specialist working with SEC's EarlyON centres. I am passionate about working with children and helping them build a foundation for the rest of their life. As well as, providing support for families to ensure the best growth and development for their children. I previously worked one-on-one with children with exceptionalities and love finding new ways to best support children and advocate for their specific needs. I look forward to this new endeavor at EarlyON SEC.

I am an Early Learning Specialist at EarlyON SEC. My love for children is unprecedented. Working positively with children is my passion while delivering my best to families is my goal. As an early learning specialist, I strive to achieve my dream of promoting equality, diversity, and inclusion in my programs. This is made possible through program planning, and building nurturing environments for children. Working with a team is important to me because each member gets to introduce ideas which work to benefit the needs of the children and their families. I am always open to positive communication with my SEC Team, my respected supervisors, and honorable families. I am an all-round individual which serves as an advantage given that it compliments my spirit of openness, especially when performing my duties as an early learning specialist. In my spare time, I love gardening, travelling, exploring different cultures, and watching the news. I am a social media fan as well and use Twitter to extend my relationships with people on an educational, personal, and professional level.
As an Early Learning Specialist with EarlyON, I feel incredibly grateful to be able to share my love of learning with such a diverse community. Seeing children, along with their families come together in our centres to explore & inquire is the BEST part of my job. Being able to provide them with a space that is inclusive to all is something our whole team values. My goal is to continue to offer meaningful experiences that support children’s learning & development while watching them explore & build off of their natural curiosity which will have a positive impact on the rest of their lives. One of my favourite quotes by Maria Montessori is - “Play is the work of the child” Outside of EarlyON, I enjoy spending time with my family & friends. I love to cook but I also love trying new restaurants. My favourite food is PIZZA!
