Meet Our Director Nicole Noriega

Nicole graduated from Capilano University with a degree in Early Childhood Education and Care, and has been working with children since 2010. In addition to working in Canada, Nicole has spent time travelling abroad including a year working with children in New Zealand. Nicole began working with Willowbrae Academy in 2017 as a preschool educator. Her experience and work ethic was noticed by management and soon obtained a position as Assistant Director which she held for a year until accepting the position as Academy Director. Nicole’s passion for travel and experiencing new cultures has influenced her own personal philosophy of education; bringing respect, empathy, and inclusivity to Willowbrae Academy. Outside of work Nicole enjoys scuba diving, riding her motorcycle, playing tennis, cooking, and continually learning new skills.

Toddler Room

While the focus is still largely on their primary care, toddlers begin to take their first steps towards greater independence. We promote their development through play and natural exploration of their surroundings. We begin to lay the basis for positive social interaction and support their positive relationships with peers. We focus on using our words, being gentle with our friends, sharing, and turn taking.

Infant Room

Infancy is a wondrous period of growth and exploration. Our infant programs focus on building meaningful relationships with our families, built on trust, care and attention. By recognizing and acknowledging the needs of each individual child, infants feel secure and safe in their environment and thus creates a strong foundation to support the rapidly developing social, emotional and physical needs of infants while they explore the world around them.

Pre school Room

Pre-school rooms are equipped with age and developmentally appropriate learning materials and activities reflect the interests of the group and are often child directed. We encourage and promote positive social interaction and develop the many tools necessary to ensure a positive transition to “big” school and a lifelong love of learning.
