Hello! My name is Chelsea and I am the Childminding Coordinator at Vancouver Laser and Skin Care Centre. I recently moved to Vancouver from Ontario, where I studied Early Childhood Education, Developmental Services and Sociology.
My work experience includes childcare, various roles in elementary schools, direct support for children and adults with developmental disabilities, and teaching English as a foreign language in Japan. Some of my qualifications are Mental Health First Aid, First Aid and CPR-C, Early Childhood Environmental Rating Scale training, and Kids Have Stress, Too! My registration number with the College of Early Childhood Educators is 61704. An Ontario ECE is equivalent to a British Columbia ECE plus Special Needs Educator and Infant and Toddler Educator.
My personal interests include travelling, hiking, yoga, reading, and spending time with family and friends. I come from a large family so caring for children is second nature to me. It is work that I find both incredibly fun and rewarding. I am very excited to be running the Childminding program here at Vancouver Laser and making it the best it can be. I look forward to meeting you and your children!
