Meet Our Teachers


Jennifer Jones

Jen had a wonderful time teaching at The Mudpuddle for 7 fun filled years and is thrilled to continue on in the same tradition at The Friendship Tree. She is active in her community and has been involved with Girl Guides of Canada, working with girls of various ages, for 25 years. She is the proud mum to three beautiful girls. Her enthusiastic approach to teaching through lively songs, games and stories is a wonderful introduction to the French language


Nancy Brayton

Coming from a long line of teachers, it's no surprise Nancy has devoted her life to education. After earning her Bachelor of Arts in English and her graduate diploma in education - speciality: pre-kindergarten to grade 6 (both from McGill University), she began her teaching career at the elementary level, but soon found her niche in preschool - where she's been teaching since 1988. Her goal is to provide her students with a nurturing and stimulating environment in which to start their educational lives. And, it's the enthusiasm and enjoyment for learning that preschoolers show that keeps Nancy inspired in her professional life after all these years.
