Our AmazingVCNS Staff


Kaya Renwick, RECE

My Name Is Kaya Renwick. 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.     


Megan, RECE 

My name is Megan. I am the Preschool and School Age program head teacher here at A.V.C.N.S. I am an ECE graduate from Algonquin College. I have a strong admiration for kids. Working with children has been my passion since I was 13.I started off by simply babysitting kids around my neighbourhood. In addition to being an Early Childhood Educator at AVCNS, I also work as a supply teacher for the Ottawa Catholic Child Care Cooperation during the summer. When not working with children, you can find me on the beach soaking up the sun.
