Jasmine – ECE Teacher

I have always loved spending time with children as they always provide me a different perspective about the world around us. The individuality of each child keeps me on my toes, ready to learn and explore something new with them everyday.After graduating in the Early Childhood Education program from Ontario in early 2019, I decided to relocate to British Columbia after working in Ontario for more than a year. Undoubtedly, it was a big decision that turned into a great experience. I am so glad to be a part of the Birchland team and I take pride in being able to work beside so many experienced professionals.

Young – Infant and Toddler Teacher

I am very excited to join the Birchland Tree House team and happy to be working with the children.  I graduated from the ECE program from Vancouver Career College and I also volunteered in Sunday School teaching children at my church for over 14 years.  It is a real joy and very rewarding for me to watch the childrens’ growth and development on a daily basis.  I love working at Birchland Tree House because not only do I love spending time with children, I also love seeing them learn new things and getting better at tasks they initially had troubles with.  The part I enjoy the most about my work is the bond you form with the children and their families and the enjoyment on their faces when they arrive at the centre.
