Our Early Childhood Educators
Kidko Child Development Centre takes great pride in carefully selecting the educators we hire. Each educator has an Alberta Child Care Certification, a clear criminal record check, and first-aid/CPR certification.
I’m Erlie Fletcher. I graduated at Philippine Normal University as Bachelor in Elementary Education. I’ve been working in childcare since September 2017. Working with kids makes me feel I’m home because it reminds me of my dozens of nieces and nephews, that’s why I seldom miss my family cause I found my second family in a childcare center. I’m the person that values time the most. I believed that every minute is so important, especially when it comes to work, family and friends. Being on time for me is also a sign of respect.
Faye studied Early Learning and Child Care at Mount Royal University. She originally studied social work and psychology but found passion in child care. Faye is an advocate in learning through play and has worked with children since she was in high school. She has more than 6 years of experience as an early childhood educator and has worked with children as young as 6 weeks up to 12 years old.
She believes that children are capable of discovering and learning several things in their own way. She believes that the environment and the people in a child’s circle help stimulate the growth of the child’s developmental skills.
“Play is often talked about as if it were a relief from serious learning. But for children play is serious learning. Play is really the work of childhood.” — Fred Rogers
Hi, my name is Catherine. I’m a licensed Physical Therapist in the Philippines, took a Baccalaureate Course in Special Education and was given a Child Development Supervisor Certificate by Alberta Child and Youth Services.
Working with children is my passion. I’ve been working as an Early Childhood Educator for over 10 years now.
I believe that each child is unique, has different needs and can reach his/ her maximum potential as long as resources are available and people around him/her help through their support and encouragement. One way of learning is through play. It’s an essential part of a child’s growth and development- physically, academically, socially and emotionally.
As an Early Childhood Educator, we play a vital role for each child’s growth and development.
“Being a child is no difference as an adult, both learn from each other, needs support and most importantly love and respect.”
My name is ROCHELLE. I graduated from Bow Valley College with an Early Learning Childcare Diploma. I have worked as a preschool teacher in the childcare industry for over 6 years. I enjoy various roles; which provides me with great understanding, knowledge and experience in the field.
I feel very lucky to be working in the child care field and for Kidko. There is always something new to learn about. Like teaching techniques; how children learn best; child development; children’s rights; fun and zany activities to do with the children; language and development; child nutrition; and health and well-being.
Education is not a field that anyone can just go into; to be both successful and fulfilled in their career. Prospective educators must have a passion for teaching young children. This enthusiasm should reach beyond playground fun and focus on helping young children meet developmental milestones.
I am Geniefer Martinez. I finished my Bachelor Degree in Banking and Finance in the Philippines. I used to work as an office coordinator which led me to the customer service industry. I was born in a large family; living with relatives in one compound/community. I enjoy watching tv with my friends and family. I love kids and it fills my heart with joy to watch them grow every day.
Hi, I am Ms. Lolita. I’m licensed teacher in the Philippines with a masters degree in early childhood education. I was given a Child Development Supervisor Certificate by Alberta Child Care Services.
I’ve been working with children since 2017. Being with children is the most exciting and valuable experience that I have because it gives fulfillment of my passion. As a parent of three, I can say that the relationship between children and parents or educators is give and take. It is not only the children who learn from the people around them but also the adults who learn from children. It teaches us the word “patience”. Our kids have their own pace of learning in different ways and it is our duty as educators to guide, protect, and help them to find ways on how the learning will come along their way.
“If a child can’t learn the way we teach, maybe we should teach the way they learn.” -Ignacio Estrada
