Meet the Team!
ECE Level 3
Hi! I'm Dania, owner of Little Forest Dwellers.
I have over 9 years of experience working with children in various settings. I have my Early Childhood Development Diploma and Child Development Supervisor Certificate from Lethbridge college. Prior to that, I used to work as an accountant and I hold a Bachelor's Degree in Accounting from the University of Quebec. I speak 3 languages and love learning about other cultures. I have a passion for working with children and teaching them through play.
I am also a mother of 2 girls ages 11 and 17. I have lived in the Springbank community for over 10 years now and love to watch wildlife visiting from my window. I also love to go camping with my family during the summer.
ECE LEVEL 3
Hi! I'm Brooke and I have been working with children and families for over 15 years. I have an Early Childhood Education Diploma from Algonquin College, in Ottawa, Ontario, and I am certified as a Level 3 Early Childhood Educator by the Alberta Government.
I have worked with children in a variety of settings and have found that my passion lies in fostering an open-ended, child-led environment for play. I love seeing children pursue their sense of wonder as they construct their understanding of the world around them.
I am a mom of two children, the younger of which you will see running around Little Forest Dwellers Bragg Creek. We currently live in Redwood Meadows. When I'm not at work, I enjoy crafting, exploring and trying new cuisines.
ECE LEVEL 3
My name is Cleo and I am beyond excited to continue my career in early childcare specifically in Outdoor learning. I have recently finished my certification in Early Childhood Education at Bow Valley College and I am on my way to finish my diploma. I believe that children are the future of our society. This is the sole reason why I wanted to become an early childhood educator; to guide and influence children through the most important years of their life, by navigating the world as their co-learner. Outside of my role in the classroom, I spend most of my time weight training and spending my time outdoors hiking the Canadian Rockies. Because of my love for our mountains, I am a big advocate for taking care of our planet by educating myself and those around me about the differences we can make for the future generations to come.
