Before Buddings, Ehlssie was a teen mentor with Big Brothers, a camp counselor, and a facilitator with the Surrey School District Young Rembrandts Program. Fittingly, her passion is for art and culture.
She holds a Bachelor Degree from UBC in Anthropology and she brings that background to the forefront with her summer journeys program Ride with Raven – a fieldtripping, gallery-hopping voyage across West Coast Indigenous art.
Ehlssie’s presence in our centre is one of calm connectedness, and her Thursday classes will bring out the spirit in all of us. Join her from 1 – 5pm this summer, or find her online at Ehlssie@buddings.ca
Florence Tsai, BSc. – Daycare Educator
Big Kids Club – Tuesday: Summer Picnics
Florence Tsai joined our centre last season with a degree in nutrition from McGill University, where she was also an educator’s assistant in the campus daycare.
She completed her Daycare Training with our internship program earlier this year, when she also (immediately) took over the centre kitchen management. She’s been helping to hold down, and build, the weekend fort, and we’re excited to welcome her to a weekday of her very own.
Best of all: she loves to cook!
For #BKCSummerJourneys, she’s cutting cucumbers, setting salads, and most importantly, coming up with the most amazing picnic picks that you can take and make at home. Her Summer Picnics class happens every Tuesday from 1 – 4pm, and you can find her online at Florence@buddings.ca.
Kezia Antholyka, BA. – Saturday-care Teacher
Summer Journeys Saturday: My Canada
Kezia Antholyka finished her training at the end of the Spring, and jumps right into the summer program, as the Saturday-care program lead. With a degree in Psychology from UBC, and three different preschool programs under her belt through the University Neighbourhood Association, Kezia brings an array of ideas and experience, and most importantly, a fresh perspective.
She can sing, she can dance, play ukulele, guitar, and piano, and she speaks Indonesian, as well. That’s because she’s from Jakarta, and after arriving in Vancouver in 2013, to study at UBC, she joined the Gado-Gado Indonesian Society there, helping members of her community to acclimatize to Canada, and handling the groups’ marketing.
Saturdays this season, she’s out to learn about her new home, as Canada celebrates our 150th anniversary. There are parties and festivals all over town, and Kez and Saturday kids will be part of the action, weekly from 10am – 4pm.
Denet Albores, BA., ECE – (Returning) Daycare Educator
Denet Albores rejoins our team this summer, for the third time, and this time, it’s the charm!
Joining us in 2014 after finishing her Early Childhood Educator’s certificate from Vancouver’s MTI College, she danced her way into our hearts, and brought an easy-breezy Mexican warmth to our program. Supporting her through her Permanent Canadian Residency has been more than a 2 year journey that included ups and downs and all arounds, but she’s back, and we’re keeping her!
Denet has a style and sweetness that children love, and a heart of pure gold. It’s been a year since she last left, so she’s doing an accelerated training, and we’re looking forward to having her back on the Big Kid team come autumn. If you know her from before, or just want to welcome her to the centre, she’d love to hear from you! Reach her at Denet@buddings.ca.
