My name is Katie Winfield-Hryciw, I am a Early Childhood Educator with over 10 years experience working with children of all ages. In October 2016 I had my son and decided shortly after that being at home with him was something I needed to do.
I studied Early Childhood Development at Bow Valley College, graduating in 2011 with a diploma. My training did not stop there, since then I have had many amazing opportunities to further my understanding of child development, including completing my Level 1 Introductory Theraplay(R) and Marshack Interaction Method training. Contact me to see a full portfolio of completed professional development seminars and courses!
I believe that children are competent, capable, curious and and unique. Every child deserves a safe, warm and caring environment that will foster their curiosity. I endeavour to promote self-worth and value through positive care giving, and stimulating activities that will promote a sense of belonging, well-being, engagement and expression.
In my home children are respected as individuals and are given the opportunity to be active in the direction their learning takes.
