Tracy has been an Early Childhood Educator and part owner of Little Friends since 2001. Although, apparently she has always known that she wanted to “have a daycare and four kids” and even wrote about it in her Grade 1 journal. Tracy loves to spend her days playing and implementing learning environments for children and then capturing their expressions in photographs. She finds it fun to create new and exciting sensory and art experiences and loves to hear all the funny and inspiring things children have to say. Tracy also feels very fortunate to work in the preschool along side her amazing husband Ben (ECE). Together they have four beautiful children. They enjoy camping, cooking, beach combing, watching their kids activities (baseball, soccer, gymnastics, jazz, ballet, swimming, Guides) and spending time with their large extended family.

Kim has been caring for infants and toddlers since 2001 when she opened her first toddler center. Kim is known for her huge heart, loving arms and absolutely falling in love with every single child who comes into her care. Kim could literally sit with a child and lovingly read them the same board book over and over again to their hearts content. Kim loves to read, sing, and snuggle children all day long. She truly believes she has the best job in the world! Kim is also an exceptional mother to two crazy little boys and a thoughtful, caring wife to a crazy Australian. When she isn’t taking care of others, she tries to take care of herself by playing baseball, doing cross fit, reading, cooking or catching a movie with a friend.
