Centre Manager

Hi my name is Shelley Farkas. I grew up in St. Benedict, Sk. After graduation, I moved to Saskatoon to attend university. I graduated from the U of S in 1995 with a Bachelor of Education Degree. I began working at PCDC in 1996 in the school age program at Buena Vista School. I moved over with the school age program when we were given out notice at Buena Vista. In August 2007 I accepted the Assistant Director position. I have had the opportunity to work with all ages within our centre and enjoy spending parts of my day will all the groups.

            I was married in 1996 and on September 11, 2002, our twins, Adam and Brianna were born. I am very fortunate to have had the opportunity to bring them with me to PCDC. During the spare time I have, I enjoy reading, watching movies, and visiting family and friends.

Program Leader

My name is Courtney and I have been employed with PCDC since July 2011. I graduated from SIAST with my Level III. Since I began my career here I have worked at all of our locations and with every age group. I have been the Program Leader here at St. Phillip since 2017. I have a daughter who was born in October of 2020, one cat and one dog. I am very fortunate to be able to bring Myla to work with me everyday and watch her learn and grow with all the wonderful staff that we have here at St. Phillip. In our spare time we like to get together with friends and family and play cards and the odd board game. We like to go camping in the summer and try to make it out on the golf course a few times. In the winter I play in a fun curling league every Saturday morning with some of my family.
