Hello, my name is Mary and I am a Child Development Assistant. This is my first year working at A Child First Preschool at Our Lady of the Evergreen School. I feel blessed to work alongside a team of dedicated and wonderful teachers at this center.
I have many years of experience in customer care and services while I was a travel agent in China. But I truly like to care and work with children. This love of children lead me to change my career path to early child education and care. I was trained in a child care program at CIWA (Calgary Immigrant Women’s Association). During my school time, I spent 4 hours every week volunteering at two daycare centers. I found myself really enjoying caring, nurturing and guiding children. Working with children makes me happy! This will be my life career, therefore I will continue to learn and expand my knowledge of child development and education.
I have two lovely sons, one is 10 years old, and another is 8 years old. My favorite thing about working in the field of child care is seeing that smile and connection when I have helped a child with something or anything, and learning something new from my colleagues or from a child!
