Cindy Curry (Early Childhood Educator III, CAE)
I have been in the field of Early Childhood Education for over 30 years. I graduated in 1989 from Assiniboine College with a diploma in Child Care Services. Since then I have taken many workshops and also attained diplomas in Studies in Aboriginal Chid Care and Early Childhood Program Management. In the summer of 2020 I completed the course work and became a certified Forest and Nature School practitioner. I love learning and bringing my new knowledge to the work I do with children.
I have worked the front lines for many years as well as been a team leader, supervisor, and director of a group centre and a nursery school program. I also enjoy facilitating workshops and instructing at Red River College, Portage Campus in the Early Childhood Education program.
My husband and I have 2 daughters. Jordan and Randi
Stephanie McDougall (Early Childhood Educator II)
I have been interested in child care since 2008, when I volunteered at a daycare in Timmins, ON. I graduated from the Red River Early Childhood Education program, Portage Campus in 2014. I worked in a larger center in Portage before joining Children Naturally in 2016.
Some things about me; I LOVE animals. I foster through Portage PAWS when I can. I own cats, dogs and various pets. I enjoy writing, card making, and reading in my spare time. I am a new member of Toastmasters, to work on my writing and social skills. Also once a year I participate in an international scavenger hunt in the name of kindness.
Victoria McDougall (Child Care Assistant)
After working at the Portage Family Resource Centre for a year (2013) and a summer, I realized that I loved working with children. The primary age group I worked with was 2 – 4 year olds. When I came back as the Summer Program Coordinator (2017) I worked with children 3-12 years old. In 2017 I volunteered with Big Brothers Big Sisters and helped facilitate their Go Girls! Program for grade 7 and 8 students. I adore how honest and carefree children are.
My interests include Comic-Con, live entertainment, visiting my family, reading, photography and relaxing with my cats.
