Welcome to Our New Teacher – Claire Cresencia

Hello Canmore Preschool Families,
We are pleased to announce that our board has hired Claire Cresencia as our new Preschool Teacher!
 claire
Claire comes to us with a wealth of experience and certifications in Early Childhood Development. She has worked at Canmore Community Daycare
since 2004 in a variety of roles – from classroom teacher to Before and After School Care program coordinator to her most recent role as Assistant Director.
All of us at Preschool have enjoyed working with Claire over the years as partners sharing the Roundhouse facility, so we are absolutely thrilled to work more closely with her in the future. Claire will teach a morning Pre-K 4-year-old class, a morning Preschool 3-year-old class, and the afternoon Preschool 3-Year-old class. We are confident she will be a great addition to our team!
From Claire: “I look forward to finding myself back in the classroom to inspire and be inspired by your children. I have a love for the great outdoors and taking every opportunity as a learning experience.”
Welcome, Ms. Claire! We are looking forward to September. Enjoy your summer everyone.
Sincerely,
Ms. Lindsey & Ms. Carmen
