Stephanie was born and raised right here in Cornwall! Steph (as she is affectionately known around the Centre) is a Registered Early Childhood Educator who graduated from the Early Childhood Education Program at St. Lawrence College in 2011.
Before deciding to take the Early Childhood Education program, Steph had the opportunity to become a nanny in British Columbia for a year which confirmed her desire to work with children and to enter college.
Stephanie is very excited to be a part of Heart of the Family Child Care Centre! She started her journey with Heart as a co-op student in our Infant Program. Then, before graduation, we knew Steph was perfect for Heart of the Family and she worked as part-time evening staff beginning in December of 2010. Upon graduating, Stephanie was hired as full-time staff in our Toddler Program.
Stephanie is very passionate about making a difference in local children’s lives, and believes that one way of doing this is through education. Teaching is a powerful and essential means through which students and the educator alike can grow and strive to become the best representation of themselves that they can be, and ultimately inspire generations to come.
In addition to her regular duties, Stephanie is also currently the Chief of the Joint Health and Safety Committee here at the Centre. Since working with the toddlers she has become the scheduling coordinator for the centre.
