Meet Shannyn Rus, ECE, CIAPP-P

As the operator of Kitimat Day Care Inc., I am proud to be an experienced Early Childhood Educator (ECE) with over a decade of expertise in providing excellent childcare services. Since 2007, I have dedicated my career to Early Childhood Education and hold a diploma in Early Learning and Childcare (ELCC) from Grande Prairie Regional College (GPRC). I have successfully operated daycares in remote areas, catering to families seeking exceptional learning and play environments for their children.

As an ECE, I am proud to have established Kitimat Day Care Inc., where I prioritize excellence and quality in childcare. I also value inclusivity and respect for every family that entrusts their child to my care.

I possess a valid certification in First Aid Level C CPR/AED. Additionally, I have attained the esteemed position of Triple P Parenting Practitioner with Steppingstones, where I specialize in providing support to parents of children with disabilities through Triple P Parenting Levels 1-4. Furthermore, I am certified as a Brain Architecture Game Facilitator, Google Educator, and volunteer as a TELUS Wise Ambassador. My dedication to empowering families with young children extends beyond the physical world, as I am also a Certified Information Access and Privacy Professional (CIAPP-P), committed to ensuring safety in our digital realm.

I aim to establish the Daycare as a vital component of the Kitimat community and the preferred option for parents. I am appreciative of the chance to positively impact the lives of the families.

Cablecar Childcare, operated by Kitimat Day Care Inc., has achieved successful registration as a business.

Philosophy and Goals

At Kitimat Day Care Inc., we value and respect each child as a unique individual. We encourage them to explore their environment and learn through challenging play experiences while ensuring their safety. Our environment nurtures creativity, curiosity, and free expression, providing a flexible but familiar routine with realistic limits that make them feel secure. We involve families in their child's experiences, recognizing them as the primary influence on their development. Children can share their happy, sad, and proud experiences with individuals who acknowledge and respond to their feelings. And most importantly, we aim to create an environment where children can have fun!
