I have been at Learning Edge Childcare & Preschool since June 2004. Ive been working in the childcare field for over 20 years. My qualifications include: Lead and Assistant teacher cerfifications, infant/toddler certification, CPR/AED & First Aid certification, SIDS & SBS training. I've been working with toddlers now for quite awhile, and enjoy teaching and working with this age! They have so much to offer, if they are given the chance. I look forward to getting to know our new students and their families.
