Meet Our Facilitator- Cathy
Cathy is a parent of two children and has worked in the field of Early Childhood Education for over 35 years as a: teacher, manager, consultant, home day care provider, family support consultant, executive director and College instructor. Her love and passion for the well being of young children and their families is what has driven her to learn as much as possible to better serve our families.
Her experience in actually implementing the jolly phonics to 3.5-5 yr old children has shown how effective, when implemented correctly, it can impact a child’s ability to read using their interest and play based activities.
“I have seen directly how this program works so well when it is introduced at the right time and the foundations of literacy skills are addressed and solidified throughout the infant, toddler, and preschool period.”
She has extensive experience not only putting into practice research related techniques to improving children’s brain development, resiliency, meeting developmental needs, curriculum development but has also worked as a manager of a child care centre and family support program with the military population.
Her mission is to give Supervisors and RECE and ECA staff support through providing trained supply staff and educational tools and resources and years of experience to help Early childhood Educators, Supervisors continue improving quality in their centres to build healthy families.
