Mme Urvashee is fluent in four languages, including French, English, Creole, and Hindi. She has come to Regina from Mauritius where she spent 3.5 years teaching at Lucky Kids Preschool.

Mme Urvashee has a very kind heart and a love for children. She brings training, experience, and wonderful personality with her to Mes Amis.
Mme Julie is returning to Mes Amis Preschool for the 2017/18 school year. This will be her second year with Mes Amis Preschool. She is experienced in adapted education and specifically in children dealing with separation anxiety.

Julie has studied the Reggio-Emilia approach independently. Julie has additional formal education in the medical field (CT, Mammograms, Xray, and EMT). She is well educated in communication, with training specific to children. With her work experience in medical field, she was the person who was sought after when children needed care and she worked in a child focused medical facility in Calgary, AB. She has volunteered at the YMCA daycare, assisted her mother and sister who ran dayhomes, and has volunteered for her own six children's various activities. She has done presentations for kindergarten and grade 5s and recognizes the need to adapt the teaching to the different age groups.
