Overseeing the day-to-day operation of our programs brings pleasure to my life.  I appreciate the many relationships that I have developed with staff members, parents, and children in our care. I have many interests including: kayaking, hiking, piano, swimming, horses and reading… I get to participate in many of these activities at the Fun Farm! I delight in children. They always lighten the day and bring sunshine to my life.

I love to create art and to paint. I really enjoy cooking and baking, whether at home or with children in the daycare. I enjoy swimming, as well as curriculum planning and activity planning. I love working with kids because they always make me laugh. I enjoy watching children’s excitement around learning new things, and experiencing new adventures.

My name is Miss Anna and I have worked with out of school age children at the Fun Farm childcare centre for about 6 years.  I have lived just minutes from the daycare my entire life and love the beautiful neighborhood we share! I attended the University of Victoria and completed a BSc in Biology and environmental studies in 2012. In my spare time I enjoy camping, hiking, and exploring BC’s coastal environment. Working with the kids at the Fun Farm brings me lots of joy! My favourite thing to do with the kids are going out to our forest where we get to play lots of exciting games and to go on field trips on their days off school! I love working with kids because they have a unique perspective, are so adaptable, and possess huge imaginations.
