Hello! My name is Kay Gimenez and I am the owner and director of Little Learners Preschool, which I opened in September of 2002. It was my passion for being around children and making a difference in their lives that inspired me to become a teacher.
My love for children, combined with my interest in early childhood development, prompted me to pursue my diploma in Early Childhood Education from Mount Royal University. I am proud to say this has now blossomed into a 20+ year career in the field.
True to my educational background, I try to encouraging creativity and exploration while bringing a nurturing side to my classroom. I support children as they step out of their comfort zone to learn new skills and concepts, all while moving forward through changes in their development.
Hello! My name is Connie Fralic and I have been a teacher at Little Learners since 2011 teaching both the 3 year old and 4 year old programs. In addition, I spent several years with the Calgary Board of Education both as a member of the staff as well as a parent volunteer. Currently, I am dedicated to our 3 & 4 year old programs helping our young friends become kindergarten ready!
I have over 10 years experience working with babies and young children since becoming a licensed Kindermusik educator back in 2006 (mainly focusing on whole-child development through music and movement), during which time I opened my own Creative Arts Center for children from newborn to age 7.
I am the proud mother of two children who attended Little Learners Preschool back when I was a parent volunteer.
My genuine passion for helping children to discover, learn and grow will no doubt continue to flourish through my love for my children at home and my children at Little Learners Preschool. Mother and teacher….best job ever! I am truly blessed!
