Early Childhood Educator/Manager – MWF Class Lead
My name is Brandy Weeks and I live in Armstrong with my family. I received my ECE Certificate from OUC and Camosun College in Victoria. We have lived in the community for over 20 years and my husband was born and raised here.
Children are born scientists. They explore, test hypotheses and learn about their world through experiences. Our role as an educator is to foster that innate wonder and curiosity. In preschool, we start the process of learning how to learn by encouraging healthy social interactions, physical movement, and listening skills.
My aim is to create an environment that is welcoming and inclusive to all children and families. This allows us to work as a team and set children on a path of life long learning. I am honored to be a part of the preschool team!
Early Childhood Educator – T/Th Class Lead
My name is Bonita Everson, and I live in Armstrong with my daughter and my husband. I received my ECE Certificate through Pacific Rim Early Childhood Institute.
My belief is children learn through play. Every child is filled with curiosity and will naturally grow and develop skills when they have an inspiring environment in which they will feel safe to explore, problem solve, participate in dramatic play and have social interactions with others. My goal is to build a strong, trusting relationship with the children and families so we can work together to provide a positive learning experience for your child.
I am thrilled to be part of the team at the Armstrong Preschool and look forward to meeting all of you!
My name is Tennile Lachmuth and I have lived in Armstrong since 2011 with my husband and 3 kids. In the past, two of my children have attended this preschool and I have acted as treasurer of the board. I have my Education Assistants Certificate through Okanagan College – Salmon Arm. I am excited to be working as a supported childcare worker!
I believe that all behavior is communication and that kids do well, if they can. I collaborate with team members to identify strategies that allow each child to do well and use best practices to build on their individual social/emotional and educational goals.
