Meet Our Director Gabrielle Bartolome

Gabrielle was born in the Philippines and moved to Canada with her family when she was 12 years old and has grown roots in Calgary ever since. She now enjoys her spare time with her partner and their two children by travelling, watching movies, or just hanging out.

She graduated with a Level 3 from the Early Learning and Childcare Program at Bow Valley College in 2017 and has been working in the field since 2016. She has had experience working across all the age groups in the ECE field and began her first leadership role in 2019. Being able to connect with children and families is her passion. She enjoys working closely with educators so that together, they can create a warm and welcoming environment for the families and children. Gabrielle loves seeing children learn, grow and have fun throughout the years.

Infant Room

Toddler Room

Pre school Room

Infancy is a wondrous period of growth and exploration. Our infant programs focus on building meaningful relationships with our families, built on trust, care and attention. By recognizing and acknowledging the needs of each individual child, infants feel secure and safe in their environment and thus creates a strong foundation to support the rapidly developing social, emotional and physical needs of infants while they explore the world around them.

While the focus is still largely on their primary care, toddlers begin to take their first steps towards greater independence. We promote their development through play and natural exploration of their surroundings. We begin to lay the basis for positive social interaction and support their positive relationships with peers. We focus on using our words, being gentle with our friends, sharing, and turn taking.

Pre-school rooms are equipped with age and developmentally appropriate learning materials and activities reflect the interests of the group and are often child directed. We encourage and promote positive social interaction and develop the many tools necessary to ensure a positive transition to “big” school and a lifelong love of learning.
