meet Our Teachers....
Miss Joyce and Miss Melissa
Hi friends, my name is Joyce Winther, and I am a Registered Early Childhood Educator as well as the supervisor and teacher at Westdale Co-operative Preschool. I have had the pleasure of teaching young children for over 18 years in many educational environments. I have three grown daughters, who all attended co-op preschools when they were young, and we share many special memories from those years. Our preschool offers a unique opportunity for parents to be actively involved in their child's first classroom experiences, and to create many special memories together. I am honoured to be a part of such a significant and magical time in the life of each child and their family.
My name is Melissa Bochniak, and I am delighted to be a part of the Westdale Co-operative Preschool teaching team! As a lifelong learner I am constantly striving to further my understanding of children and how they learn. I have given families the comfort of in-home quality care for 15 years while working as a nanny. My love of children is my passion not only at work, but also at home where I am raising my two young and incredibly wonderful children.
I am a hardworking and fun-loving person, and I am always thinking of ways to improve our children's preschool experiences while they are in our care. I offer the families at Westdale Co-op Preschool a wealth of knowledge and experience combined with a fun sense of humour to help children grow through play. The families of Westdale Co-op Preschool are thrilled that Melissa has joined our teaching staff this year!
