Congratulations Marie-Rose!

30 Years!

The Agency is proud to announce that one of our day home educators, Marie-Rose has recently

celebrated their 30 years of being a day home educator.  What an achievement!  As Marie-Rose pointed

out to me at a recent professional development event, she has raised 3 generations of children in her

time as an educator.  As a valued member of our day home agency, we are happy to share this

milestone. The Agency asked Marie-Rose to share about herself, please read below:

 

 

                                                                                                   My name is Marie Rose El Cid. My husband and I moved to Canada in 1988 and are the proud                                                                                                       parents of four children and proud grandparents of three grandchildren. I began my day                                                                                                             home in February of 1992 with North Edmonton Family Day Home and remained with them

                                                                                                   for 9 years. Throughout this time, my family and I built several relationships and connections

                                                                                                   with the families in my care, and I am blessed to share that those families are still in our lives

                                                                                                   today. In the year 2001, my husband and I decided to sell our home and move to the south

                                                                                                   side of Edmonton so our children would be in closer proximity to the University of Alberta. In

                                                                                                   July of 2001, I joined Southgate Medallion Family Day Home and I am incredibly proud to be a

                                                                                                   day home provider with them today! Specifically, I am thankful for the many educational

                                                                                                   sessions and professional development opportunities I have been given and I am proud to

                                                                                                    see how my day home is nurturing the lives of so many children. Much like my experience with North Edmonton Family Day Homes, I have continued to establish relationships with the families in my care and I am incredibly grateful to all of them, as they have not only trusted me with caring for their child, but they have embraced my culture and traditions. For example, it is incredibly rewarding when a child asks their parents to make a Lebanese dish! They even know the Lebanese terms!

 

Today, I am proudly celebrating 30 incredible years of running my day home.

I have raised several generations, built relationships with parents and children, and

established a home with much love and care. I am still connected with many families

that are no longer in my care and it is such an honour to have them in our lives. We

adore and love each child that has entered our home and they each have a special

spot in all of our hearts. I am incredibly proud to know that my two daughters became

teachers because they grew up with the children in my care, and were inspired to

want to do the same. They tell me that I was a role model for them and I am blessed

that I could be such an inspiration for them.

 

 

 

 

 

                                                                                                             As I step into this next phase of my life, I am still very excited and happy to continue

                                                                                                             working with children. I would like to genuinely thank all the staff in Southgate

                                                                                                             Medallion Family Day Home for their support and guidance in ensuring my home is a

                                                                                                             safe, happy, welcoming, and nurturing environment for all children to grow and

                                                                                                             become the best version of themselves.

 

                                                                                                             Sincerely Marie Rose

Agency Statement on Residential School Discoveries:

Southgate Medallion Family Day Homes Agency is deeply shocked by the news of the mass grave found on the site of the Kamloops Indian Residential School and continues to be shocked and saddened by ongoing revelations relating to such travesties.

Being part of the Early Learning and Child Care sector, the agency recognizes the injustices that have occurred and believes that this profession has no place for hate—or any form of racism, discrimination, intolerance, and bigotry. 

The agency recognizes that the early years are the most important years in a child’s development.  During this time children develop an understanding of tolerance, diversity and inclusion. As an agency we encourage educators to practice self-awareness, challenge assumptions and create a program that recognizes the unique and diverse families in which we serve.

As an agency we are always reflecting on how we can improve and do better, and we are currently reviewing how we share to our educator’s understandings of First Nations and Indigenous culture in a way that is inclusive, sensitive and invites a practice of care and education that is multi-cultural and diverse.
