Glad to introduce myself as Jasmine Kaur. I am from Chandigarh, India. I came to Canada in 2016. I am Saskatchewan Polytechnic graduate. I can speak in three different languages. I enjoy working with children. I also believe that children learn through play so as an educator I try to innovate activities which not just do their academic but overall development. My hobbies include listening to music, playing basketball.

Ting
School Age

Hi, my name is Ting Yang. I’ve finished my ECE Certificate courses last summer from Saskatchewan Polytechnic and graduated with ECE Level II. I think I’m lucky to get the position in PCDC soon after my graduation and it’s an amazing daycare centre. I’ve learned a lot from other educators and they keep helping me gain experience since I started to do my practicum here. Early years are very important for a child and I’m glad that I can make a difference to their life by putting what I’ve learn in class into practice. In my spare time, I love to watch movies and listen to classic music while I’m cooking.

Gina

Floater

I have been interested in Education since I was a little girl. I started to learn some philosophy of Early Childhood Education five years ago when I knew I was going to be a mom. I took classes about Positive Discipline from North America four years ago and was attracted by it so much that I quit my job and started to give lectures and spread their philosophy in my country. After I came to Canada, I chose to learn ECE systematically and finished my Level II Certificate courses in Early Childhood Education and First Aid/AED certification courses last year. Since September 2018, I am lucky to have my role at PCDC, as both a parent and an ECE, and do something I am really interested in.
