My name is Joanne Boyd and I have recently taken on the role of Early Learning Pedagogical Specialist at the Parent Resource Centre. I have 20+ years experience in the childcare sector. Throughout my career, I have had the wonderful opportunity to work in daycare centres, home daycare, schools and family resource centres. In addition to my role at the PRC, I currently work as a freelance community educator / trainer developing and facilitating dynamic workshops for children, parents and professionals working with families. I have a strong interest in temperament and how stress and anxiety impact learning, behaviour and relationships. I also support families one-on-one through my private parent coaching practice. I love learning and growing with the children, families and educators I have the privilege to work with.
