Mrs J. Jennings

RECE, Assistant Supervisor

I am a Registered Early Childhood Educator and the Assistant Supervisor of Peter Pan. I became introduced to Peter Pan as my daughter Sarah and the Supervisor's children attended the same elementary school. Each morning I prepare the snack of fruit and vegetables for the children. I love our food sharing program as it often introduces children to a new fruit or veggie and builds community involvement. I studied theatre in New York and lived there for 7 years pursuing acting. One of my core beliefs is the importance of the arts, music and imaginative play in the lives of children. I am so happy to work in such an inspiring and creative preschool where the children are encouraged to express their ideas and individuality.

Mrs B. Marcy

RECE, Supervisor

I am very proud to be a Registered Early Childhood Educator and the Supervisor of Peter Pan Preschool. My journey at our school started over a decade ago with my own children attending Peter Pan. My son Logan began attending Peter Pan in Sep 2011 and my daughter Lily began Peter Pan the following year when she was 18 months old. While my children attended Peter Pan I volunteered in the classroom and was the President of the Board of Executives. During my daughter's last year at Peter Pan I began working part time at the preschool while I completed my apprenticeship program for Early Childhood Development. After graduating as a Registered Early Childhood Educator I took over as Supervisor of Peter Pan. Over the years I have had the opportunity to work with some fantastic teammates, make strong connections with caregivers, and have the pleasure of watching so many children grow into amazing members of our community.

Mrs E. Michaluk

Program Assistant

I have been part of the Peter Pan family since 2013 as a parent volunteer and on the Executive Board of Directors. Since then all 4 four of my children have attended Peter Pan and I have been employed here since 2017. When we discovered Peter Pan near our home we found a beautiful, engaging and safe place for my child to learn, feel included and make friends. We now live much further away and are happy to drive the distance for our amazing school. As a teacher I have brought my own love of cooking with children into the classroom. I enjoy creating culturally diverse dishes with the children and watching them take pride in being involved in the cooking process. I spend a great deal outdoors with my own 4 children and love being able to do the same with our students. Our outdoor classroom allows me to share this passion for nature and exploration with the children at our school.

Mrs C. Tippett

RECE, Program Assistant

I am a Registered Early Childhood Educator and Pastry Chef. When my daughter Emilia was attending Peter Pan Preschool I loved having the opportunity to take part in the classroom. Being a parent volunteer solidified my love of teaching and inspired me to go back to school. Once my daughter began kindergarten I returned to school to complete Early Childhood Education. After graduation I began at an outdoor daycare but when a job came up at Peter Pan I was thrilled to go back to where my journey began. I love running the art program at Peter Pan as I am a creative person myself and feel passionate about allowing the children to express themselves through art and exploration. Being in charge of our social media allows me to document the children's stories and to continue these connections with their families at home.

Our teachers run our classes seamlessly by using the Ministry approved play-based curriculum to effectively develop the children's skills based on their interests. Using the "How Learning Happens" document, outlined by the Province of Ontario, we can better meet the needs of the children and allow them to make their own choices as both the Teachers and parents help to guide them through play. At Peter Pan Preschool we engage the children with various activity centres, stories, songs, and play to captivate the children and to help promote early learning. Our Teachers have a gentle way of connecting the children to the task at hand, and are naturally sensitive to each child's unique learning styles and needs.

It is obvious that our Teachers are good at what they do; it is reflected in the happiness of the children who attend Peter Pan Preschool!
