Active Play Coordinator

Hello! My name is Marie and I am from Quebec. I moved to Calgary 5 years ago and recently graduated from Mount Royal University with a Bachelor's Degree in Childs Studies with a Major in Early Learning and Child Care and a Minor in Business.

I started working with children as a babysitter when I was 12 years old and have continued throughout my life, starting professionally as an extra-curricular animator at elementary schools leading activities. I have experience in Summer Camps, Early Childhood Settings, before and after school programs, and curriculum programming.

I love to explore new art forms, different physical activities, and new experiences. Anything that pushes me to think creatively and outside of my comfort zone makes me happy and content.

The best part of working with children is seeing the "ah-ha" moment in their faces when they understand something new or figure out a solution to a problem. I love supporting through their thinking process and working on their strengths and interests. It is a rewarding, fun, and ever-changing career and I am excited to work with TOPP KIDS.

Joon Young

Active Play Coordinator

I was born in  South Korea and in my family, we had three boys and we always played outside together. That is why I became very active, energetic, and athletic. Not having had digital gadgets at that time, I had a lot of time to play with peers outdoors and on the playground. This provided me with the opportunity to develop social skills.

Following in my father's footsteps, I studied civil engineering. After graduation, I came to Canada to improve my English and it did not take much time to fall in love with Canada because of its cultural diversity. It was a great benefit for me to experience various cultures in one country. Although I majored in engineering, I was always interested in early childhood education. That is because I wanted to make a contribution to our society by helping children become responsible adults. So I studied Early Child Education in Toronto and completed the course in 2016. My goal is to introduce various cultures to children, support their development, and positively guide their behaviors. In addition, maintaining a safe and healthy environment will be my top priority. Finally, every child has different needs and it will be my responsibility to meet their needs.

Hi, I am Simar, a delightful blend of Indian spices and Canadian snowflakes, with a pinch of quirkiness for good measure. Born and raised in vibrant tapestry of India. I decided to swap samosas for poutine and chai for maple syrup. Yes, I embarked on an adventure across oceans to the land of polite apologies and breathtaking landscapes – Canada!

Having hopped from Lethbridge to Calgary after my graduation from Child and Youth Care program recently, I'm still trying to find my way around this bustling city. If you spot a slightly lost soul staring at a map, that's probably me – but fear not, I'm as approachable as a warm cup of cocoa on a frosty day!

I would describe myself as an artsy person. I've transformed blank canvases into masterpieces, or at least that's what I like to tell myself. Another unique speciality of mine is that my henna skills are truly exceptional.

For me, my kindness is my compass and sweetness my signature scent. Building rapport is my jam; you could say I've got the Midas touch when it comes to making friends.

I possess boundless energy and a deep enthusiasm for engaging in diverse physical pursuits. My true passion, however, lies in working with children, where I can create impactful and positive transformations in their lives.

As I move forward, I am excited to see how my journey unfolds, and I am committed to making a meaningful impact every step of the way.

Leah has a strong passion for Early Childhood Education.

Her journey started when she was young, being exposed to early education and care through her family's private day home.

My goal has been to move from my hometown of Fernie B.C. to Calgary, AB to obtain a degree where I can help shape and guide children to achieving their goals. I received my Bachelor of Arts with a focus on Child Psychology.

I then started working in the out of school sector.  I loved what I was doing and decided to obtain my Early Childhood Educator Certificate. After a few years, I then took some time away to start my own family. I am a mother to three boys, and I have always had the pleasure of volunteering in their schools and other extracurricular activities.

I am excited to be a part of the TOPP KIDS Program. My goal is to help make a positive difference in a child’s day-to-day life. I believe each child should be treated with respect, care, and love. I am happy to meet some new families and be a part of their growing experience.

Active Play Coordinator

Hello! I am from Punjab, India and I moved to Canada in 2017. I graduated from Sheridan College in 2019 with my diploma in Early Childhood Education. I love working with kidsand have been and Educator since 2019 in Ontario, Saskatchewan,  and now here for 2 1/2 years in a daycare program. I am now living in Chestermere and I love it here!


Active Play Coordinator

I grew up in a small town called Prince Rupert BC. When I turned 9 years old my mom signed me up for singing and guitar lesson at a studio called Ring System Studios taught by the one and only, Ian Lihou. I excelled at this for the 8 years that I was a student, singing in front of big audiences, starting a all-girls band called "Nobody Told Rachel". Once I turned 17 Ian offered me a position as his partner in teaching at the studio which I of course accepted. I got to watch kids have the same excitement and experiences that I did but from a different point of view, a proud teacher.

I was a part of the music community my whole life, it gave me so much purpose and enjoyment, but one day I realized I had gone as far as I can musically in Prince Rupert.

I recently left my home town. I thought I could live there forever, that there was no need to explore the world.

Then I met my long-term partner Zakk, he opened my mind to the possibilities outside of Prince Rupert. When we met I knew he had no intentions of staying in Prince Rupert long-term so I had a decision to make. With his support and guidance, I managed to make the right decision and move with him to explore what else may be out there. Now that I've done it, I know how much I needed it. Although I miss family and friends, moving here has given me a new sense of freedom and adventure.

Luckily my immediate family like my Sister and Brother (Makayla and Damian) and my Mom and Dad, (Deanna and Ron) live in Edmonton. My extended family like Grandparents, Aunties, and Uncles still live in Prince Rupert but I go back to visit as often as possible.

I have always loved working with people in general but kids more specifically, I like hearing their ridiculous stories and getting to act like a kid again myself. There is so much to learn for both of us, kids and adults, so to me, life really just begins with them.


Active Play Coordinator

Hello families! My name is Rena and I am from Italy.

I completed my first degree in Midwifery (2012) where I learned the art of bringing forth new souls into the embrace of humanity. Then I joined the International Association Of Infant Massage (IAIM) and worked with parents and toddlers to promote the development of cognitive, emotional, and .motor skills in kids and teach the importance of active listening and non-verbal communication.

In 2019 I graduated in Pharmacy and got the wonderful opportunity to collaborate with school students through Health & Prevention programs and group counseling. The children were encouraged to share fearlessly their problems, assume responsibility for their actions, and were persistently praised for each goal they achieved. Being outdoorsy, I have always aimed to enrich little ones' exploration skills and nurture their social interactions by utilizing the outdoor environment as a year-round classroom and I firmly believe that by fostering the above-mentioned qualities, I can help every child to become, one day, a confident, compassionate, and responsible leader!

Active Play Coordinator

Hello everyone!

My name is Paige, born and raised in Calgary, I am excited to return to my home city now that I am a graduate of MacEwan University with my Bachelors of Child and Youth Care.

During my studies, I have worked with children, youth, and families, with a focus on mental health, developing community connections, and using creative arts as a therapeutic medium. I see myself as a life-long learner who loves to explore and grow, this is precisely the reason I love working with children and youth: I get to experience the same joy of learning as I support them in learning and growing and I learn just as much from them too!

Curious and adventurous, I love being hands-on with my work, especially when it comes to using arts and creativity; an artist and a musician, I spend most of my free time painting, sewing, practicing songs on my accordion, or playing the occasional video game.

I hope that with my creative nature, I will be able to develop strong connections and foster fun, memorable experiences with everyone at TOPP KIDS!

Chelsey MacLellan

Business Developmnet Manager - Maternity Leave

The first 12 years of a child’s life are foundational in creating the morals, values, and self-esteem they will carry with them for the rest of their lives. Providing a safe creative and nurturing environment for children to explore, create and discover who they are and who they long to become has always been my passion. We are all a hidden treasure longing to be known and every child deserves to be seen that way and be appreciated and loved for exactly who they are. It is Chelsey's life mission to allow exactly that.

She began her journey with children working youth summer camps where she learned a foundational relationship to learning through play, community, and nature. Chelsey then continued in an integrative environment for children with special needs where again a foundation of community and play was deeply rooted in the progress of each child and the community. Having a background in Montessori teaching where children are encouraged to learn through natural play and self-exploration, the deep need and importance of leadership and self-ignition became paramount for a child to truly understand and treasure who they are. After a foundation of learning with younger children, she came to love the passion and creativity school-age children have. The way they allow themselves to truly explore and allow their inner selves to blossom.

"I am proud to say I have committed the last 15 years to working with school age children and excited my journey has led me to work and lead with the children, families, and team at TOPP KIDS."

Courtney Smith

Courtney has been working with children for over 10 years and has a distinct passion for providing children the best opportunities to thrive in their environment.

Children have the unique gift of teaching the ones around them through their life experiences, because of children Courtney has learned so much. “A child can teach an adult three things: to be happy for no reason, to always be busy with something, and to know how to demand with all his might that which he desires.” ~ Paulo Coelho. It’s only her wish that she can do her part in providing children the best opportunities for growth, development, learning, joy and passion.

Courtney began her work with children in Toronto, Ontario as she worked in a before and after school program while attending college for early childhood development. Following school, she moved to British Columbia and later Saskatchewan working in the field of early learning with children ages 1-12. Courtney then moved to Calgary, Alberta where she went back to her passion of working in out of school care. Since living in Calgary, she has been the coordinator of several before and after schools as well as an early learning and childcare coach to educators in the field.

"I have had the distinct pleasure of been in the early learning and childcare field for many years, working with amazing children, families and co-workers that have shaped me as a person as well as my creative passion. It’s my overwhelming wish to give back to children and families by providing them support, devotion, hard work, encouragement and care.
