My Name Is Ruqaya Renwick. I am commonly known to parents and children alike, as Kaya. I am the Director at the Alta Vista Cooperative Nursery School .
I have been working as a Continuing Education Kindergarten Language Instructor with the Ottawa Carleton District School Board on Saturdays since 2003.
I graduated with honors from the Early Childhood Education program at Algonquin College in 2009. Shortly after graduating, I was offered a Senior Kindergarten teaching position at a private school. The only reason I left my teaching post was to pursue a degree in Developmental Physiology at Carleton University in 2010.
Although my true passion is working WITH the children, Someone must be responsible for the administrative part of this job, and the luck of the draw landed on me :D.
I've been working at the Alta Vista Cooperative Nursery School since 2012, and I enjoy every minute of it.
