Hi, I'm Miss Michelle! Welcome to Michelle's Little Learners.
I graduated in 2007 with my Bachelor of Education and spent many years teaching in elementary schools across Manitoba and Alberta. I am a wife of 12 years and a mom of three wonderful children. I spent the last 6 years running my accredited and licensed dayhome in Spruce Grove. 2021 will mark the beginning of my 2nd year owning and being the teacher at Michelle's Little Learners Preschool. The idea of running my own preschool has always been a dream of mine, but it wasn’t until my youngest child was about to reach school age that I decided to make it a reality. I'm excited to start a new chapter of my teaching career in a preschool setting.
Here are some of my core beliefs and philosophies when it comes to teaching, education, playing, and your little ones:
· Your child has the right to a safe, nurturing learning experience · Each child is unique with regards to their strengths and weaknesses, I hope to highlight their strengths and support their weaknesses. · I will provide educational experiences that will help your child develop their early literacy and numeracy knowledge. · I will provide opportunities for your child to increase their independence that will prepare them for the demands and routines of a kindergarten classroom. · I will provide an environment that fosters your child’s social, emotional, physical and intellectual wellbeing. · Children learn through play, play, play! I will provide open ended, as well as more directed activities to help your child learn through play and explore their imagination and the world around them.
I was born and raised in Spruce Grove, which is why my family and I decided to settle here. I love the community and look forward to becoming even a small part of what makes our community so great to live in. I have been loving my time spent in the classroom this year getting to know the children that are currently attending with Miss Kristy, and am even more excited to be their teacher in September. I know that this is going to be a big change, but I plan to keep things running very similar to how Kristy is currently running the preschool to make sure the change is a positive one for everyone.
Please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions you may have.
