“It takes a village to raise a child”
Hi my name is Zeljka! I moved to Canada 10 years ago from Croatia. I have 3 beautiful daughters and a small dog. I’ve been working at ASW for over a year, as I moved to Maple Ridge. Before ASW I worked at the airport but I wanted a local job so I could spend more time with my family. I love working with kids, and all my days at work are filled with children’s jokes and laughs. I used to want to be a P.E. teacher, because I really enjoy doing sports and activities with kids. I also enjoy crafts and painting. No matter how tired you are, or what kind of mood you’re in, the kids always manage to put a smile on my face, which is I love working here!
Hello, my name is Natalya. I came to Canada from Russia 9 years ago. I feel like the happiest woman in the world because I have my dream job: I work with kids! I can’t imagine my life without children. I started to work with them since I was 17 while volunteering in University back in Russia.
I have previously volunteered in a Family Education centre as a translator, where I helped parents complete Positive Parenting courses. I also manage a social networking group with over 500 people where I host tons of activities for adults and kids. I have extensive experience with different cultures from all over the world. I currently have two jobs: I work special needs children & teach at ASW. I enjoy crafts and am well known as a good seamstress. Even with all my responsibilities, I still have free time to explore our beautiful BC with my 2 sons. We also enjoy baking very delicious Russian recipes together
Hi! My name is Consuelo! My bio is coming soon!
Hi! My name is Makayla and I have been working at ASW for just over a year now! I am a university student who is working towards her dream of being an elementary school teacher in the future! I am passionate about working with children. I currently live in Surrey, and lived in Manitoba for the past 4 years going to university and playing on the school’s soccer team, which is also a huge passion of mine! I’ve loved seeing some of the kid’s passion for soccer and team sports while being a member of the team here. It’s been an eye opening and a truly amazing experience! Outside of daycare you can usually find me playing soccer any day of the week, or hanging out with my dogs at home!

Hi my name is Jssi and I started working with ASW at the start of the 2022 school year!
