Hello, my name is Maria Cyre and I am delighted to be teaching with West Edmonton Play School! My passion is caring for children and teaching through play. I have 21 years of experience in this field and one crucial part of my success is that I consider all children to be very unique. You cannot always treat them the same way. I also have a Level II Early Childhood Diploma from Grant MacEwan University. I am originally from Ecuador, South America and I speak fluent Spanish. I have lived in Canada for 27 years, I am married and I have 2 wonderful children. As a family we enjoy the outdoors together and activities such as camping, fishing and relaxing by the fire.
