Leasa is our licensed Early Childhood Educator who brings 20 years of experience to our program. Along with her formal education at Camosun College, Leasa has gained much knowledge of early education through practical experiences. Most of her teaching has been with three to five year olds in a preschool setting, however, she also has experience working in a toddler center, a kindergarten program, parent and tot programs, and as an aid to a child with special needs.

Leasa feels the empathy and understanding she has gained in her role as “Mom” to three children is a valuable asset to her partnership with parents in the cooperative setting.

Leasa encourages children to learn how to interact with others through one on one play and group activities.
