“My name is Venassa, I graduated in 2005 from the Early Childhood Education program and have been working in the childcare field since.

I chose to become an Early Childhood Educator because it’s been a passion to help others and what a better way then to help the children of our future. Being in childcare brings many highlights to my day from being able to work with children, watching them grow and learning to become independent and capable individuals, while they explore the world around them. It is one of the most rewarding things, when you watch their little minds at work and their imaginations go wild, it makes you realize how simple things can be.”
