My name is Jamila, and I am thrilled to be teaching your children this year!
I have been involved in child care and early childhood education for nearly 20 years with my own child care facility. I am also very involved and enthusiastic about volunteering and volunteer at Senior Homes as well as with the Food Bank and a Women’s Shelter.
I am originally from Morocco and have been in Canada since 1995. I have three wonderful children; my oldest daughter Yasmin is 19 years old, my other daughter Hannah is 12 years old and my son Zak is 8 years old. I enjoy travelling, fitness, cooking, and spending quality time with family and friends.
I have worked with children of all ages, and I enjoy watching them learn, grow and have new experiences. I am very passionate about facilitating learning by inspiring play experiences that encourage social, emotional and intellectual growth. I strongly believe in creating a positive environment for children that allow them to play, engage in problem solving, ask questions, make choices, and develop relationships with others.
I also know from experience that each child is unique, having had their own set of experiences and adaptations, and I enjoy meeting them at their level and helping them grow in their own unique way.
I can’t wait to meet you all, and we’re going to have a fantastic year ahead of us!
