Robyn moved to BC in 2013 (Golden BC) from Ontario. She just moved to the Elk Valley in the Spring of 2021. On her spare time you can find her outdoors doing what her and her family love best; mountain biking, snowboarding, camping, and hiking. Robyn is also an avid ‘yogi’ and is a certified Yoga Teacher as well. She has found it to be extremely beneficial even in child care settings & tries to incorporate it as much as possible.
Robyn has been working in the Early Years field for over 10 years. She graduated with an English & Sociology Degree in 2012, then completed her Early Childhood Education, Infant/Toddler & Special Needs Diploma shortly after. Since then she has been working in child care settings for several years.
Teddi was born and raised on a farm in the valley Sparwood specifically, and while she wanted to get out quick when she was younger, it was obvious this was her forever home and returned shortly after she finished her college program. Teddi started schooling as an English major but soon found my passion lay in childcare as she found herself childminding in my home to be such a pleasure during my stay-at-home mom days. I’m now working hard to complete my ECE certificate. Elkford has been the best place for my family as we love the outdoors, and my partner grew up here. The mountains are our home. I also like to think I have a creative side and enjoy using my hands to paint, write and all the way to making soaps.
