Professionally, Annie has also worked as Microbiology Research Technician at Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada.

Ms. Barbie-01.png

Childcare Worker

I graduated from University of Calgary with a degree in Criminal Justice in 2021. I had always wanted to be a police officer, but for some reason, I became interested in children. I've always loved children, but I never imagined I'd work in childcare because the only experience I have with children is I volunteer at church. I've been volunteering as a preschool teacher for about ten years. While seeking for positions in the criminal justice profession, I discovered that I wanted to learn more about children and teach, so I applied at a daycare. I truly loved and enjoyed it. Now that I've been working in this field for almost a year and a half, I've decided to further my study by returning to school and doing my level 2. My goal and purpose is to make a difference in the lives of every child I encounter and guide them in the right path because early childhood is the most essential stage of learning and growth. 

Mrs. Jina-01.png

Childcare Worker

I have a Bachelor's in Psychology with a focus in child development, and I am currently taking my Masters in Counselling Psychology.

I look forward to working with your children at Little Roots! I have over 10 years of experience working and volunteering with children, from volunteering with children in children ministry, to working in a school setting for 3 years with autistic children at Janus Academy. In my different roles I have had the opportunity to support and help my students build confidence and autonomy in themselves and their exposure to new experiences. My goal at Little Roots is to be able to use my experiences to help foster an environment that allows the children to be comfortable exploring their likes and dislikes and to see them discover themselves!

Ms. Kayla-01.png

I have always had a heart for children for as long as I can remember. I have always found joy in babysitting and watching kids grow from little babies into smart, independent, children.


My love for that really flourished when my niece was born and I had the pleasure of watching her develop into such a kind, gentle young girl. In my spare time, I am at my church volunteering in the nursery and as a youth leader, out hiking in the mountains with my dog, or catching the occasional movie or two at the theatre!

I am so excited to start at little roots and meet all of you and your children. My goal is to provide a safe space for your children to learn and develop while being there to guide them. 

Mrs. Mi Ra-01.png

After completing my bachelor's and master's degrees in art in Korea, I gained valuable experience as a kindergarten teacher.

Upon moving to Canada, I started my journey in childcare by volunteering at a daycare in Edmonton. Over the past decade, I've witnessed the remarkable capabilities of children, reinforcing my strong belief in their potential as mighty learners. I look forward to the surprises and growth that each child at Little Roots will bring, and I'm grateful for the opportunity to contribute to their educational journey.
