We strongly believe that children deserve care that is not only educational, but also fun, in an environment full of opportunities to learn and grow through play. Children need a healthy, nurturing environment with loving, educated Early Childhood Educators.

Our Amazing Team

The goal of early childhood education should be to activate the child’s own natural desire to learn.

Brianna Winters

Hi, my name is Brianna Winters and I am the owner of Colour My World Childcare. I am an Early Childhood/Infant/Toddler/Special Needs Educator and have been in the childcare field for 9 years. I have lived in Kamloops my whole life, however I moved to Kelowna from 2014-2016 to work in a large childcare facility.

I am passionate about Early Childhood Education and teaching young children. I love being on the floor and interacting with the children, however I wouldn’t pass up an opportunity to sit back and observe them. One of my favorite things as an Educator is to create pedagogical narrations (learning stories) to share with families. It’s a great way to show families what their child is learning and engaging in throughout the day.

Another one of my favorite things as an Educator is Professional Development. I love attending workshops and seminars to further my education and bring new ideas back to the programs. I love connecting with other Educators and collaborating ideas. To be a part of a group of Educators that are just as passionate about this field as I am, is an incredible feeling.

I graduated from Vancouver Career College in Kelowna as an ECE in 2014 and have been happily in the career ever since. I love working with children and building connections with families, but most of all i love the smilies and laughs that brighten your day.

I came into this career to educate, support and have fun with children while engaging in free play and activities throughout the day.

Play gives children a chance to practice what they are learning. -Mr.Rogers

Melissa

I’m Melissa Schultz. I moved to Kamloops 13 years ago from Goderich, Ontario. I always dreamed of becoming an Early Childhood Educator since I started babysitting at age 10. I have always wanted to help children learn and grow, and to help families. In my spare time, I love to be outside being active. I also look after children from daycare to help when needed, and now that I have a daughter of my own, I love spending time with her. Children are, and always will be my passion!
