Dear Parents,

My name is Thanya Selwyn and I thought I would introduce myself as your child’s teacher this year. I am looking forward to meeting and working with all of your children at St. Sebastian School.

Before coming to A Child First Out of School Care in Calgary, I worked in Lethbridge at a Home Care/Group Home as a community support worker with children, youth and adults with developmental disabilities. I also worked in child care where I taught infants, toddlers and preschoolers. I have my diploma as a Child Developmental Assistant from ECDB in Alberta. In addition I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology, an Emotional Education Diploma and a Disability and inclusion Diploma from Mexico City.

I have worked with children in an early years program where I helped children with neuronal risk to be independent. Before that I worked 10 years in human resources but decided a change was in order because I love to work with children and help them to be more independent.

I am originally from México and my husband and I lived two years in Lethbridge. We recently moved to Calgary to the community of Legacy.

Your children will enjoy a fun filled year at the Out of School Care and I am excited to watch them grow this year.

Ms. Thanya
