Hello Everyone! My name is Mandi, and I am a recent graduate from Bow Valley College with a certificate in Early Childhood Education and Development. I am currently enrolled in my second year of the ECE Diploma program. I have a strong passion for early literacy learning as I have a background in English Literature from Thompson Rivers University. I believe in the importance of active play with peers as it contributes to social-emotional learning, cognitive development, and physical literacy skills. In my spare time I enjoy reading, writing, listening to music, nature walks, spending time with my family and young daughter.
