Hi, I’m Girlie Osea, married with a 16 year old step son and currently residing in the West side of Saskatoon. I was an elementary teacher in the Philippines for almost 10 years handling grade 1 and preschool. I’ve been here in Canada since November 2014. I find this place a very cold one with warm hearted people. My first job is a crew staff in McDonalds new my place.

I love doing these things aside from teaching: cooking, working on the computer such as Adobe Photoshop, Media player, Microsoft offices, researching and surfing the net. As of now, I’m working here in Parents’ Child Development Co-operative as a full-time staff and looking forward to making friendships and memories with the kids, staff and parents.

Kristin

Ladybug Room

HI my name is Elizabeth Martin (Liz). I started at St.philips P.C.D.C  in 2012.  I have loved every moment of it!  I love to spend time with the children and help them learn as they grow. It so rewarding to watch them learn new things, watching their smiles, joining in on their giggles and of course hugs! I have my level 1 and plan on getting my level 2 and 3. I haven’t quite found the time with 3 matt leaves. I have three kids, Emerie, Michael and Peyton (and my dog)... I love spending my free time reading, playing with my kids, and most of all traveling with the kids lots (When I can find time). We like to get out of the house a lot when we can we are adventurous.

 Hi, I am Kristin Jabusch. I come from a family of 6. I have 1 older sister, 1 older brother, 1 younger sister and of course my parents. We have lived in Saskatoon for most of my life. I have recently received my ECE diploma from Sask Polytech in 2015. I started working with PCDC in the summer of 2014 as a summer student. I then returned back to school to complete my diploma. I am now back and enjoying it here. When I am not at work you can normally find me with my family and friends playing a game or reading a good book.

Hello! My name is Jess  and I moved to Saskatoon (and started working at PCDC) in September 2018. I finished my ECE Level 1 in February and have been working with children since 2013. Being in a daycare is my most favourite thing in the world; I love the hustle n’ bustle, the loving relationships, and the endless giggles! I have an old German Shepard pal named Amani who loves to lay in the sun & a rascally, fluffy hamster named Sam. I like to read, crochet, practice yoga, spend time outdoors, and practice my harp when I have time to myself!

Alice

School Age

Hello, Alice here! Some of you may remember me as this isn’t my first time with PCDC. My journey here started in the summer of 2017 as a summer student, I was later brought on as a school age educator and received my full Level I in Early Childhood Education, I also have my Youth Care Worker Certificate. I have had a few big changes in my last year or so which lead me to a new position in the school system, I missed all the joy that these tiny humans bring into my life and decided I needed to get back into it, I have been working hard on my classes and I am now a Level II certified ECE. I can’t wait to continue my journey with all the wonderful kiddos here at St. Phillip. I am so excited to be back and seeing all the bright smiling faces new and old!
