Meet the Little Acorns Team
Marilyn King, Rosa Kann and Stephanie Henshaw are the main teachers at Little Acorns Preschool with a support of aides, past-teacher assistants and therapists. Between us we have many, many years of experience working with young children in Alberta. Although our backgrounds are diverse, we have common goals – to make learning a joyful experience for young children and to help them celebrate their achievements.
All the Little Acorns staff have an Early Childhood Certificate (Level 2) and their individual experiences and qualifications include a BA in English Literature, Certificate in Education (Modern Educational Dance), working in daycares, Montessori classrooms, Boys and Girls club, kindergarten placement, on-going family support work, and working with children with special needs.
Outside interests include reading, music, cooking, gardening, crafts and spending time with family. We are all animal lovers with dogs and cats. Community is really important to us and being involved with different groups in Chestermere has helped to enrich the activities that we can bring to Little Acorns.
“I always knew what I wanted to do was teach!”
“The happiness in their voices when they hear they’ve achieved a goal makes my heart melt”
”Children are such open and loving individuals who remind us what is important in life”
