Hello! Hi,
My name is Sherin Gayed. I am a wife and mother of two wonderful children. I have a Bachelor of Education from a university in Egypt. I have ECE Diploma from Algonquin College in 2015. Now I am RECE. Recently I am the Supervisor of St. Mary's Daycare. I love children and enjoy working with them. I am so proud of being a member of St. Mary's amazing team. 


 Hello, my name is Pui Wah. I have worked at St. Mary’s Daycare Centre for 3 years. I graduated in 2009 from the ECE program at Algonquin College. I also took undergraduate studies in psychology/sociology. I worked in a variety of teaching practices such as Montessori, Waldorf, and Reggio Amelia. I am able to extract valuable information and knowledge components from each field of study to incorporate into the classroom setting. I have also done frontline work in the first words and speech therapy as well as worked alongside children with disabilities through one-to-one correspondence. My philosophy in teaching is to nurture and guide. I acknowledge their differences and similarities that are unique to each individual child. I also take professional development courses in behavioural studies and creative arts courses relating to toddlers. My personal philosophy in life is to live in the moment, love and provide for others and laugh at every possible moment.

I do my best to arrange beautiful lunch tables and healthy tasty snacks for the children to enjoy. I enjoy planning and implementation various programs for Preschool Children. I also enjoy working with this lovely, hardworking, and caring group at St Mary's Daycare.


Hello, My name is Sarita Sharma and I am a Registered Early Childhood Educator. I graduated from Algonquin College with an early childhood education degree. I have been working as an early childhood educator since 2013. I always enjoy teaching and caring for children at various stages. I have two wonderful daughters. As a mother, I believe that the early childhood period is the foundation period for establishing a child’s future learning, social strategies, behaviour management, and beliefs. This implies that the responsibility of an early childhood educator is extremely important in the holistic development of children. Therefore, it is always important to treat children with a kind heart. It is such a pleasure to be able to watch and assist the children as they grow and move to higher grades. I am happy to be a part of the St. Mary’s daycare.

I am very excited to be working with all the amazing children, parents, and staff here at St Mary’s Daycare Centre.
