Splash Child Enrichment Centre Educators

Andria Martens

Early Childhood Educator II

Hi I’m Andria. I am a trained Early Childhood Educator, with over ten years experience in both child care centers and nannying. I am a patient, fun and encouraging mom of two, who strives to provide a safe and nurturing environment for children while allowing for them to learn and play. I love being outside and expressing myself creatively in art and music. I understand the importance of learning and reading too but it’s always best to learn while having fun. I will help children develop all aspects cognitively, physically, emotionally and socially.

Anna Bell

Child Care Assistant

Hello my name is Anna, I’m originally from Ukraine. I’m bilingual in Ukrainian and Russian, and also besides English, I can speak Chinese. I started to work with children in 2015 as an ESL (English as a second language) teacher in China.  I continued to work as an Early child educator in Tajikistan. All my classes are usually play-based, because my philosophy is: Children learn through play. My goal is to help children develop their physical, cognitive, social-emotional and language skills and at the same time enjoy their childhood.

Jaimie Emberhawk

Early Childhood Educator II

Jaimie discovered the Splash team while she was in college completing her Early Childhood Education diploma program. The Forest School program and the community involvement of the centre highlighted what she considered foundational to her own teaching style. Jaimie has been a part of the SPLASH family since the summer of 2018. Her interests in Emergent Curriculum and Child-led Discovery made Splash an ideal place to create meaningful connections with families and the surrounding community. Jaimie’s experiences as a life-long volunteer with the Winnipeg Folk Festival have provided her with the opportunity to develop a deep appreciation for the power of the people to create beauty and connection regardless of geographic or cultural differences. She brings this appreciation of diversity into the classroom through music, storytelling and art. She encourages the children to explore the world around them with enthusiasm and an open heart – highlighting the ways we are all connected with each other and the planet we all call “Home.”
