Nice to meet you!
We are two Millennial and Gen-X preschool and elementary teachers with a passion for teaching and a desire to create a community space where learning, growing, and creating thrive. We are born and raised in Vancouver, BC with 10-12 years of teaching experience in the public and private school system. We grew up in the Cedar-Cottage Kensington and Mount Pleasant neighbourhood and plan to continue living here with our families providing a place for your families. We live in the one of the best cities in the world, however the concern for child care is a reality. We would love to continue to grow Vancouver families here.
We believe at the heart of each amazing city lies fully engaged communities and compassionate beings. We began our journey and our dreams of creating a space in 2014 and have gone through many challenges, learning curves, and of course roadblocks but we are now finally moving forward! We are truly appreciative of all the people that have supported our journey thus far and for everyone who continues to do so at this moment. It really takes a whole community and team to start something exciting like this and the whole process amazes us. We are inspired to create space that is here to uplift...and since we are dreamers and doers, we will be that change that we wish to see in the world!
Our vision includes a child care centre that is Reggio-Emilia inspired and incorporates best practices in education while highly valuing the arts. Our vision for a school of arts includes educational development in the areas of music, art, character and psychological development. We specialize in providing fun, engaging, and educational piano lessons for all ages. It is our desire to include art, play and dance therapy for children and adults as we believe in providing services to support well being. We endeavour to meet the needs of physical, emotional, spiritual, and mental growth of our students, families, and community.
Our experiences have guided us to create something more than just a child care or music school. We are inspired by all beings' unlimited potential, and we believe in interest-based learning, guiding students, collaborative work, and much more. We extend this invitation out to our staff and families as we work together as a community to create a welcoming, open, and diverse space. Just like children who are continuously growing and learning, we as a child care learning centre and "school of arts" endeavour to continuously grow and learn from our students, families, community, world and our team.
