OUR TEACHERS

First Steps Preschool Tsawwassen

Katie Yakiwchuk
First Steps Director

Teaching young children is a joy and passion for me. I love coming alongside a child as they learn and discover the world around them. As a mother of three children, I value and appreciate the importance of early childhood education and the role it plays in a child’s growth and development. I love that every day brings a new challenge, a different question to answer, and exciting discoveries. My husband and I, along with our children, attend South Delta Baptist Church.

Laurie Jackson
Teacher

I believe that children learn through play. I love watching the faces of children as they discover the world around them, the role that they play in it, and being there to help them navigate their way. I have been immensely blessed to have watched this process on many occasions by teaching preschool on and off for close to 30 years. In the past, I’ve worked as an education assistant. I am a mother of two, live in Tsawwassen, and attend South Delta Baptist Church with my husband, Martino.

Megan Dyck
Teacher

I have been in the ECE field since 2009. I studied at Thompson Rivers University and am a certified Montessori Preschool teacher. I have worked in almost every aspect of Early Childhood Education from director at a YMCA Childcare Centre to a floor and lead teacher at a daycare centre. I am passionate about teaching and guiding children towards the goal of reaching their full potential. I enjoy connecting with preschool families and supporting them during this exciting season of life. My husband Josh and I, along with our two children, Lyndon and Hannah, attend South Delta Baptist Church.

Kathryn Poulin
Teacher

It is my privilege and purpose to collaborate with families and community members to influence a child's love of learning in these wonderfully formative years. After obtaining my BCYC from UVic in 2014, I have been sowing into the Ladner/Tsawwassen community. I look forward to exploring different avenues for children to express themselves and incorporating their interests into my teaching. My husband, son, and I call Surrey home and attend Village Church.
