Lynleigh is a passionate advocate in the field of Early Childhood Education. She first started in the field as an ECE diploma graduate in Peterborough, Ontario and has since completed her Bachelor of Child Studies in Early Learning and Child Care at MRU. With over ten years of experience working with children, families, and communities, Lynleigh is committed to creating early learning environments that communities can thrive in. Her personal philosophy and image of the child is deeply rooted in the time spent outdoors and open-ended materials that promote inquiry and free thought. She believes that children are competent, capable, inquisitive explorers of the world and her role in their journey is to offer the time and space to wander and explore alongside them. It is a joy and an honour to experience the world through the eyes of a child and it is a privilege Lynleigh does not take lightly. In her free time, Lynleigh enjoys singing and listening to folk music and musical soundtracks, karaoke, camping, biking, hiking, watercolour painting and watching movies.
