MES AMIS TEACHING TEAM
Mme Urvashee is returning to Mes Amis Preschool for the 2018/19 school year. This will be her fourth year with Mes Amis Preschool. Mme Urvashee has completed her Early Childhood Certificate Level 1 and will begin taking classes towards her Early Childhood Certificate Level 2. She has studied Phase 1 for Play and Exploration: Early Learning that was released in the Spring of 2008 by the Ministry of Education. This is a resource for the entire early learning and child care sector and is available in English and French. She has her CPR and First Aid certificate. 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 began teaching in Mauritius out of interest for teaching her oldest child and found that she had a passion for early childhood education. She moved to Canada in 2013 and Regina in 2015. 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 Laurie had a French education all through her school years and is Mes Amis' Teacher Assistant. She has been married for almost 12 years with 2 kids; Everett, 11 and Abilene, 6. Both her children are in French Immersion at Ecole St. Mary. Mme Laurie assisted in the Kindergarten classroom at Ecole St. Mary for a significant part of the 2016/17 school year, having been a stay-at-home Mom for many years.
We were lucky to have her return to the workforce and join the Mes Amis Teaching team in fall 2017. Mme Laurie and Mme Urvashee make a fantastic team at Mes Amis. Mme Laurie really, really enjoys working at Mes Amis, saying "it's a positive work environment, loves being able to speak French daily and the kids are wonderful."
