Amanda Blunden:


Hi, My name is Amanda and I've been working in/with the Children's Centre for over 6 years. During those years I have had the pleasure of working in all the programs offered; after school care, daycare, preschool, multi age and have also worked as a support worker. I'm very excited to be taking on the assistant role in the preschool this year. I am continuing my education through online college courses and hope to complete my Early Childhood Education in the next few years. I would like to thank the families for the encouragment and welcoming me into every program I have been in.
