Meet Our Director Leah Lutsenko

Leah graduated from Columbia Bible College with a diploma in Early Childhood Education and has been working in the field since 2012. Leah’s passion for early learning and care has led her to work with many different age groups and in many different capacities. She began working at Willowbrae Academy North Vancouver in 2017 as a preschool educator. Her passion, work ethic and leadership skills were recognized by the team and was welcomed into the management team as a Floor Supervisor which followed to the role of Assistant Director for two years before accepting the position of Academy Director. Leah brings joy and her love of life into all aspects of her work and deeply values interpersonal connection with the students, families, and employees within the centre. Outside of work, Leah loves to travel, read, cook, and spend time with her family.

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.
