Hi there! My name is Amanda Bekolay . I grew up in the small town of Clavet, Saskatchewan where I attended pre-school all the way to high school graduation in 2002. I have a curiously adventurous nephew that sparked my interest in childhood development.
I have many interests which include comic books, crafts, videogames and cross stitching. I live in Saskatoon with my boyfriend James who is a local comic book artist. We have been co-writing comic books aimed at children that teach the alphabet and counting as well as coloring books.
I am currently attending classes at Saskpolytech where I plan to obtain my ECE level III.

My name is Divjot Kaur (Simmi) . I am from India and I have been in Canada for 5 years. I love being around children and seeing the world through their eyes. I also believe that early childhood is the most magical phase of life and being educators we can make it more beautiful by loving and caring for children unconditionally. When I am not working I like to video chat with my parents, read books and volunteer in old age home care centers.

Butterfly Room

In 2016 I completed the Early Childhood Education Level II course at Sask Polytechnic. I am a family oriented person: you will always find me with my family or close friends. I have a dog named Thor who is like my child. He is as active as I am: we spend every Saturday at the dog park. In the summer, I spend most of my weekends at Memorial Lake. I have a great appreciation for nature and all it has to offer. I chose Early Childhood Education as my career because I have a passion for working with young children, to help them become the best that they can be. I believe that children are capable and competent learners and they deserve the best opportunities to grow and discover who they are and the world around them. I am honored that I get to help them along their journey.
