We have some amazing people working at the Yorkton Nursery School Co-operative! Our teachers are responsible for every aspect of the class, from the weekly theme schedule to the daily activities for our students. Our teachers have created a caring, safe, fun atmosphere which allows each child to be comfortable and confident with their learning experience. The focus is to educate the whole child, emotionally, intellectually, physically, socially, and creatively.
All teachers that are employed by the Yorkton Nursery School Co-operative must have a minimum of a certificate or diploma from an accredited Early Childhood Education course, a teacher’s certificate, or a combination of education requirements and experience as deemed acceptable by the Board of Directors. All employees of the Yorkton Nursery School Co-operative also have up to date training in CPR/First Aid. Our teachers regularly participate in additional training, such as accreditation for Jolly Phonics or any other professional development that is beneficial for the programming of the school.
Mrs. Haider joined the YNSC in 2006. She teaches in the 4 year old program and is also the school administrator. Her educational background includes some university courses, and a Rehabilitation Workers Certificate. She also has many years of experience in various fields including working as a teacher assistant, KidsFirst worker with the prenatal program, nurses aid, activities director for a special needs facility, coaching various sports teams, and raising her own children. When she was young her dream was to be Miss Teen Yorkton or, if that didn’t work out, a teacher! She loves spending time with our students, especially when they sing Slippery Fish together. Her favorite food at snack time is cupcakes!
Mrs. Nagy is our newest teacher in the 3 year old program. She has over 10 years of experience working with children, including as an art teacher assistant at our local art gallery, daycare, Family Resource Centre and even as a teacher’s assistant here at the YNSC several years ago! She has two young kids of her own at home who keep her up to date with all things Paw Patrol and everything Daniel Tiger! When she was young, she always knew she wanted to work with children because those were the only crafts she was good at! She loves all of the joy and enthusiasm that kids bring into our lives, especially when they’re singing anything Disney! Her favorite snack in the whole wide world is oatmeal chocolate chip cookies!
