Welcome to the September and October 2022 edition of the Southgate Medallion Family Day Home parent newsletter. This month the Agency is happy to welcome new consultants,Junie, Mariam and Aleysha. Please see their introduction below.

Junie Shrestha

"Hello, I am Junie Shrestha, a new consultant at Southgate Medallion Family Day Home. I graduated in MSc. in Human Development and Early Childhood Disorder from University of Texas at Dallas. I have been working in the field of child care for almost 10 years. I love working with children. My children have been going to day home provider through Southgate Medallion since they were little and I would love to keep them there as long as possible. Though my experiences have been in working at child care centers, I am very enthusiastic about this new endeavor of working for family day homes. I look forward to helping the educators in creating a loving, caring, and nurturing environment for the children and continue to learn with them during the process."

Mariam Hunter

"Hi, my name is Mariam and I am excited to be back with Southgate Medallion Family Day Homes. A few years back, I was a consultant but took sometime off to spend with my kids and family. I have three kids of my own and love to spend time with them, especially outdoors. I love to be creative, organize anything and eat chocolate! I am looking forward to getting to know everyone again and becoming reacquainted with those I knew before."

Aleysha Lail

"Hello. I come from an early childhood educator background. I worked at the University Infant Toddler Center for 7 years while also finishing my degree at the University of Alberta; majoring in Psychology years ago. Currently I am taking the Graduate Certificate in Educational Studies focusing on Early Childhood Education. I am hoping to use this as a steppingstone into my masters. I have a family that consists of 5 people: my mother, father, sister, brother, and chubby cat. I’ve also been engaged for two years and hoping we can have our wedding soon. Some hobbies I have include cooking, painting, nail art, playing the flute, buying collectables, boxing, plants, home making and video games. I love helping children grow and explore their culture, surroundings, and beliefs. I am excited to be working with your team at Southgate Medallion Day homes. I am looking forward to getting to know the team, the educators, children, and their parents/guardians. I'm definitely very nervous and excited to get started, don’t forget to come and say hi! I can't wait to meet everyone"
