Lindsay received her Bachelor of Arts Degree in Psychology from Mount Royal University in 2015, and also has her Level 2 Child Development Worker Certification. She began working as a Special Needs Aid in 2014, and has since developed a strong passion for providing support and encouragement to children in order to help them build confidence and develop to the best of their abilities. Lindsay is also working as a Preschool Teacher and enjoys coming up with fun and exciting ways to help children learn and develop through active play. She also loves expressing herself through hula hoop dancing which she has been doing for over 6 years, and enjoys showing children how to dance with and make their own personalized hula hoops.
From her experience as a Special Needs Aid and Preschool Teacher, she has found that one of the most productive ways to help children develop and improve is through exciting and engaging activities inspired by creative movement, song and dance, social engagement and mindfulness. Not only do such activities greatly contribute to the development of a positive self-concept, the little ones love to express themselves through creative movement and have so much fun doing it!
