Krysten graduated from Humber College in 2013 and has many years of experience working with children ranging in ages from two to twelve years old from different backgrounds, home environments, afterschool programs, childcare programs, summer camps and as a volunteer working with diagnostic kindergarten children in the Toronto District School Board. Krysten has worked many different role in the field: an Educator, Assistant Supervisor, Supervisor and Program Director and she is also a Field Placement Advisor with Humber College. Her experiences have helped develop her personal philosophy: “Children learn best through shared experiences of empathy, and they should be taught in a nurturing, secure environment through age appropriate, hands-on, play-based learning.” Krysten’s development of curriculum and co-curricular activities strongly focuses on expression of self-awareness through the Arts and exploring age-appropriate elements of science and creativity.

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.
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.
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.
