Jenn has been a part of the Halfmoon Bay Childcare Centre team since 2010. She has worked in a variety of settings with infants, children, teens, and adults with special needs for the last 25 years.
Her extensive experience includes working at the Capilano University Childcare Centre as a childcare worker, and manager on both Disney Cruise lines and Royal Caribbean, and also in the North Vancouver school system at Windsor House School. As a single mom to an amazing 12 year old, she feels especially fortunate to be raising her daughter, Tiana, in such a fabulous community. Hobbies, when her hectic life allows for them include singing, cake design, and needle felting.
Andrea has been at the Centre since 1997. She feels fortunate to love the work she does with children, and also work side by side with a fantastic team who looks at the needs of the children and wants the best for our families.
Andrea was employed by Yew Transition House working in the children’s program for many years as well as Special Services to children through community services. Currently she runs the Strong Start program in Madeira Park which has given her strong ties in the community where she lives. When not at work, her hobbies include quilting, kickboxing and hanging in the garden at her home in Garden Bay.
Elsa came to the Halfmoon Bay Childcare Centre in 2014 on practicum and has been working there ever since. She grew up on the Sunshine Coast and in her spare time she enjoys mountain biking with her husband and walking her dogs.
