Teacher with Pupils

Little Owl Educators

Little Owl staff, including the centre owner, are qualified Educators, each with years of experience and a few have their own children in our programs! Each staff member has certification from the ECE registry, valid first aid certification, a clear criminal record check, and not only everything else necessary to work in a licensed child care setting, but a passion for early learning and working with young children and their families.
