“Sear-Sha” is spelled S-A-O-I-R-S-E


2021 is a new year, and with the ringing in, we welcome a shining new face to the team at Storybook. Saoirse Roycroft grew up on Vancouver Island, acting and dancing on film and in commercials for almost 20 years before looking for a change. The opportunity to the the Early Childhood Educators Assistant program through the YMCA and Vancouver Community College last autumn gave her the chance to try another lifelong goal: working with kids. 

Saoirse speaks French, makes soap, enjoys nature, art, dancing, and stories, and while she's in training with us this spring, she's getting to know the ins and outs of our East Side centre. 

As we expand our programs, she's interested in trying new activities and establishing herself with the kids. We love her calm attitude, and quick uptake. It's only been a couple of weeks, but we're already impressed with her conflict resolution skills. She'll be up to speed in no time! 

If you haven't met our new full-timer, you will soon enough, and if you're looking to connect with her online, you can reach her at saoirse@buddings.ca
