A Message from our ELCC Supervisor
At Tuscany, we have an open-door policy between children, families, and staff. Program planning is crafted so that our students are always engaged in fun and learning activities taken from their interests. We ensure the environment is inclusive for age and developmental levels, while still challenging their growth mindset. The children explore areas of Math, Art, and Science (exploring the state of matter - solid, liquid, and gaseous through the water cycle as well as the animal kingdom). Sensory activities such as making magnetic slime, salt dough, etc. Technology activities include engineer challenges utilizing Minecraft or Lego WeDo, and creating music with MakeyMakey. Weather permitting, play outside every day so children can explore nature and play outdoor games. The best part is whatever children do, they enjoy and have fun with, brightening our staff's day.

Hello! My name is Priya, and I am a graduate from Sheridan College from Ontario! I have completed my studies in Early Childhood Education. I have over three years of experience working with children in the field. I am also a tutor, which is something I have been doing for over 6 years. Being recently married and moving from Toronto to Calgary has been a great challenge, but I am open to new opportunities and embrace them with open arms. As an educator and now the Supervisor here at Tuscany- Coded Minds, I want to ensure the well being of all children in the program, give them the love and support they need and provide the children with a variety of materials which will help them enhance their knowledge and grow as individuals. I enjoy my time working with children, providing them with an environment which they feel safe and comfortable in. My passion for working with children grows day by day and I believe that every day is a new learning experience.
Bio coming soon! :D
Hi, I am Sara Calesso and I am currently in my third year at Mount Royal University in the Bachelor of Child Studies majoring in Early Learning and Child Care. I currently am a Child Development Worker, and I have four years of experience with children of all ages. This is my second year with school age children in a before and after school program, and my second year with Coded Minds. Having the opportunity to work for Coded Minds has allowed me to fulfill one of my biggest passions in my career which is allowing children to learn new concepts through fun activities. I believe children are motivated to learn new concepts if it is done in a fun and engaging way, especially if they are allowed to get their hands dirty. Through play, we are able to see children’s interests and watch them grow emotionally, physically, and most importantly intellectually. I cannot wait to meet all the new families entering the program and see the returning families, and to create fun and engaging activities.

Hello! My name is Grace. I have studied Early Childhood Education at Conestoga College in Ontario. I have been teaching students in Korea and when I moved to Canada, I wanted to continue to work with children. I believe every child is unique and brilliant in their own ways. I plan activities according to their interests, but children’s creativity always surprises me. I enjoy coming to the classroom everyday to engage and learn with the children. I am excited to meet Tuscany children and looking forward to having fun with them.
