Hello, my name is Sheri Entwistle. I am the Program Leader here at St. Bernard PCDC. I have worked at Parents’ Child Development Cooperative since 2009 and have held different positions over the years. I have my Early Childhood Education Diploma and my level 3 certification.

I am married and have four amazing children including a set of twins. We have two dogs a Great Dane and a Mastiff Shepherd cross. We love camping, movies and spending time together as a family.   

I have always enjoyed working with children and watching them grow and change. I believe every child has their own learning style and are all capable, intelligent and caring people. With guidance and nurturing every child can reach their full potential.

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
Support Staff

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.

I have been working at PCDC since Nov 2010. I have my Level I in ECE. I was an Accountant at China.I married and have two sons, Dan and Joe. I love children and that's why I learned ECE when I came to Canada.I like spending time with my family and enjoying life.

My name is Madison Entwistle and I was born and raised in Saskatoon, SK. I started at PCDC as a summer student in 2019 and am currently working full-time as I work towards nursing school. I graduated from Evan Hardy earlier in 2020 with an award from the school for my time in the performing arts as well as AP credit in both English and Psychology. I play three instruments (the flute, saxophone, and ukulele) and have a great passion for language learning. I have spent the majority of my life caring for children as I am the oldest cousin on my dad's side as well as having three younger sisters, so I am excited to use this opportunity to grow as a caregiver as well as an educator so I can help children grow up to be the best version of themselves that they can possibly be.
