MRS. FRICKER: Our Kindergarten Teacher

Our outstanding and dedicated teacher, Lindsay Fricker, takes great pride in introducing ‘formal education’ to her students in a positive way, using a combination of creative, innovative, and traditional teaching strategies. Mrs. Fricker is new to the Dalhousie Community Kindergarten but brings a background in educating young learners. She takes great pride in the efforts and achievements of her students.  More about our teacher here……

You’ll meet the teacher… before school even begins!
Prior to the start of the school year, Mrs. Fricker visits each student in their home. The visit allows you and your child to meet the teacher individually, get to know her, ask questions and talk about the approaching school year. Mrs. Fricker brings a special craft or activity that she and your child will work on together during her visit. We find this unique home visit practice helps to alleviate any anxieties that children might have about starting school, and gets them excited about the journey ahead.

MISS DESTINY: Our Educational AssistantDestiny Reading

Dalhousie Community Kindergarten classes are enriched by having Miss Destiny in class daily, acting as our Educational Assistant. Miss Destiny is wonderfully sensitive to the needs and strengths of children. She is very observant, and having made note of some particular progress of any child, she is sure to help celebrate the achievement.  When she sees a child who is challenged by any part of a project, she can call on her background experience working with speech pathologists, occupational therapists, psychologists, physiotherapists and teachers, to find a great strategy to help that child find success.

Miss Destiny loves being with the kids, and they love being with her. Parents find Miss Destiny approachable and cheerful. At those busy times before and after class, parents can always find a friendly knowledgeable person to ask their questions, or to pass along messages. Together with Mrs. Fricker, this teaching team provides an exceptional experience for students and parents.
