Divine, Registered Early Childhood Educator
School Age Educator, Schoolhouse Playcare Centres of Durham
Growing up, I was bullied when I was 11 years old and in grade 5. It was the most detrimental thing that happened in my life. I had spoken to teachers and childcare teachers, and no one ever did anything for me. My pain inspired me to be a reliable person in the life of others. Being able to just be there for my children, or any child really, is what makes me the happiest. I’m giving them something I never had – a friend, a counsellor, a guide.
Every day while going into work, I tell myself “Divine, try your very best.” For children, I’m able to gain their trust. Communication is a key to a better relationship. I do my best to inform families about what goes on with the development of their children, but also just a conversation about whatever they feel like talking about. As for the community, inclusiveness is very important. I use my knowledge and participate in community activities. Participating in workshops, or just being part of story time at the library.
Superheroes don’t only wear capes; they may just wear converse and glasses.
If you love children, want to be a role model for them, and deepen your understanding for childcare, I strongly advise you to join the program, you won’t regret it.
