ABOUT LES BOUTS D'CHOUX
Our Teaching Team
Our teacher, Sophie, was born and raised in Québec before moving out west 13 years ago. She currently holds a Child Development Worker (CDW) certificate and is working hard towards a Child Development Supervisor (CDS).
Sophie has been with her husband for 15 yrs and they have 3 wonderful kids together: William, Skylie, and Vicky, who were all once students in Les Bouts d’Choux. She has been a part of our preschool for 4 years and loves being around kids. Her favourite thing about teaching is watching kids' reactions when they learn something new.
Sophie's motto is: learn true play in a safe environment. We are thrilled to have her as our teacher!
Our teaching assistant, Yulicia, was born and raised in Ontario where she learned to speak French by attending school in the Francophone school system. She moved out west to Alberta 7 years ago. Yulicia is currently a full-time student, working on getting her CDW (Child Development Worker) and plans to obtain her CDS certificate (Child Development Supervisor). She currently holds a CDA certificate (Child Development Assistant).
Before coming to Les Bouts d’Choux, Yulicia worked at an out of school care centre as a Ratio Enhancement (Educational Aid) for children who are on the autism spectrum. Helping students who are on the autism spectrum is also her current area of focus and study. On weekends, she works with children as a respite worker. She loves working with children and they never fail to make her smile!
In her spare time, Yulicia enjoys spending time with her family, her pet hamster Pepper, and going on road trips.
Yulicia's motto is: Playing is also a part of learning! We are so excited to have her join our teaching team this school year!
Both parents and children are encouraged and expected to take part in the activities of the preschool, and by working together we can look forward to a successful and rewarding year.
Les Bouts d'Choux started in 1982, and is a French Immersion Program for 3, 4, and 5 year old children with an emphasis on learning through play.
