A Message from our ELCC Supervisor
At Eric Harvie we want our students to take ownership of their learning and to feel like it is their second home. Working with the children from their interests as co-learners, co-researchers, and co-imaginaries. We feel it is more important that the children discover new ideas and concepts rather than just being ‘taught’ them. Children having fun learn so much quicker without even realizing they are learning! They are also offered outside learning, building nests, burying ‘fossils’ to dig for them later, playing soccer, or just having a good old run around. Life skills are very important to a child's development and learning, so we integrate those skills into all of our activities.

Hi everyone, I am Sarvpreet. I moved to Calgary in October 2020. Before that, I was in Saskatoon and had spent almost nine years there. This is my first year of working with Coded Minds. I was born in India and came to Canada in 2011. I have nine years of working experience with children ages 18 months to 12 years. I really enjoy baking, cooking, gardening and yoga. I like spending time out in nature with my children. I am also fond of watching cricket and hockey games. I love kids and it fills my heart with joy to watch them grow. I believe children are our future. I feel very privileged to be joining this amazing team of educators and to facilitate growth and learning for the children.
My name's Kara and I am incredibly excited to be part of the Coded Minds team. I have my diploma in Early Childhood Education from Lethbridge College. I have 10 years of experience in a day care setting, working from newborn to 12-years-old.
I grew up in Strathmore, and have called Calgary home for the past nine years. Outside of work, I enjoy time with family. Whether it be family dinners, road trips to Manitoba or Zoom call with my sisters. I enjoy the mountains, board games, card games and taking our lab Popcorn on adventures.
I cannot wait to see what Coded Minds has in store and I look forward to learning and growing.
My name is Miriam Ghebrehiwet, and I am originally from Eritrea, East Africa. I am married and have two kids. I moved to Canada in October 2016, and now I live in the NW Dalhousie community with my husband and my children. While in my home country, I completed two certification programs: secretarial science and office management, and the second one was supply chain management. I worked as an executive secretary in civil service administration in Asmara, Eritrea, for around two years. I moved to Calgary, and I worked with children ages six to eight for four years in my community church as a Sunday school teacher. From that time on, the notion of being an early childhood educator comes to my mind, and I accomplished the level two certificate. Currently, I am working for level three, and I am in the second-year program. I love working with kids and making a difference at an early age. I believe that children are mighty learners, so I want to assist them by being alongside them. In my free time, I like to listen to TED-Talk, and watch TV I enjoy playing with my kids, usually outdoors. I like drinking traditional coffee with my family and friends.

Hello! My name is Priscilla and I am Brazilian. I have a bachelor degree in Business Administration, but since my daughter was born, I found out that I love being around kids, teach and learn from them. I really enjoy seeing the world through children's eyes. Before moving to Canada I lived in USA, China and Ecuador. My native language is Portuguese, but I can also speak English, Spanish and a bit of Mandarin. Talking about China, Chinese food is one of my favorites. I value my cultural heritage and I have learned throughout the years to respect and appreciate cultures diversity.
