I am a dedicated RECE with many years of experience working with preschool children and their families. I have worked at Belvoir Cooperative Nursery School for 5 years as the Program Supervisor and teacher. I am also a certified member of the Association for Early Childhood Educators of Ontario (AECEO). My educational background also includes a BA with a major in psychology. My continual involved approach as an Early Childhood Educator with the Continuous Professional Learning program provides development in early learning and care. I am committed to supporting children and their families in the early years.
With a passion for children I embarked on the adventure of a teaching profession. I took time off from learning while I raised a family of 6 children. During this time, I continued to work with children by running a home child care for 20 years. In my spare time I was also a Sparks and Brownie leader for Girl Guides of Canada for 18 years and also a foster mom for CAS for 10 years. I joined Belvoir in 2010 as a volunteer when my son attended. At that time I returned to College to obtain my Early Childhood Educator Diploma. I became supply staff and program support for Belvoir 5 years ago and I am currently one of the Registered ECEs. I believe in providing children with a learning environment while working with families to offer the best first school experience. I work hard to establish a bond with each child so that they feel comfortable in the school where they can play and learn in a safe, stress free atmosphere. I plan to continue my own learning experience through workshops and part time courses.
My name is Kyra. I have been fortunate enough to have been raised on a local farm here in Mount Brydges. Horse back riding is a true passion of mine and will forever be a large part of my life. I am currently enrolled as a full time student in the Early Childhood Education program at Fanshawe College. My hope is that once I graduate with my degree I will attend teachers college.

Hello my name is Kallie. I have always enjoyed working with kids from such a young age. I have been babysitting since I was 12, when I got my babysitters course. I have a big understanding of the importance a good daycare can provide for a family. That’s why I am so happy and honoured to be apart of the Belvoir team and get the chance to work and be with your kids. I look forward to meeting you and working with everyone throughout the years to come.
