Staff Achievement

Kayla Fowler EN.jpg

Yellowhead Community Services Child Care team would like to congratulate Kayla Fowler. Kayla expressed an interest in ECE when her eldest daughter attend one of our centres, about eight years ago. Kayla joined our team when her second daughter was just a toddler and low and behold, here she is with her son - and a fully certified educator. Well done Kayla, we are REALLY proud of you!


Congratulations to long time YCS Child Care Programs employee Stacey for achieving her full diploma in Early Childhood education! She is now a fully Certified Early Childhood; Infant and Toddler; Special Needs Educator. She diligently worked toward, and completed, her ECE diploma while she continued to work full time in our Child Care Programs. That is a LOT of hard work.

Stacey is a caring and dedicated educator in our Little Bear Room at Building Blocks daycare, and her strong knowledge of child development shows in her practice, we are very lucky to have her.

Yellowhead Community Services Society has a way of attracting some really special people to our team, and Stacey is no exception! Well done Stacey!
