Early Learning Educator (EEP)

Hi, I'm Melanie and I am passionate about working with young children! I graduated from Lethbridge College with a Diploma in Early Childhood Education and immediately got hired as a teachers assistant in a new preschool In Picture Butte where I grew up. I continued to work there for 6 years and eventually bought the preschool and continued to own and teach the preschool children for the next 5 years.. I have over 18 years of experience working with young children in Preschool and Kindergarten settings.I am a proud mother of three children, Mason and Jada aged 10 and Ashton aged 8. They are my greatest blessings and I have had the privilege of staying home for 8 years to be their first teacher. I enjoy volunteering in all aspects of their learning in school and being their biggest cheerleader in all that they do! My husband and I have built a great life in Lethbridge and we love travelling, camping, pilates, cooking, baking and exercising outside.  I continue to be an active volunteer and committee chair in our church and a volunteer at our annual Vacation Bible Camp summer program that my children attend. I have instilled a Christian upbringing in my children passed on from my parents in my upbringing.
I believe in teaching with love and positive direction to encourage children to be independent and caring in their learning environment. I look forward to meeting the staff, parents and children of ICES and learning and growing in my new role as the Early Learning Educator.
