10 Year Club!
It takes a very special person to work in child care for many years. With our 30+ years of history, we have had the pleasure of having some of the best care providers in the Yukon Below are the caregivers who have given 10 years or more in service. Each one of them could have easily chosen to work in another daycare.We are proud of them all!
Sheila - Former Director
Sheila was hired as our Daycare Director when the daycare was just a few months old. What began with a handful of children and one room in the building developed into a great daycare centre in just a few short years.
Sheila gave 20 years as our director. She was always dedicated to the children first and foremost. She was the first one to arrive and the last one to leave. She did what was needed in order to make the centre a better place for all the kids, regardless of who they were.
After serving as Director for 20 years, Sheila retired and relocated out of the Yukon. Her impact in Yukon childcare continues even in her absence.

June started at the Nazarene Daycare in 1986 and gave 15 years of service. Her English wasn't the best but she knew how to communicate with the children and they all loved her dearly. She was a great example of a caregiver who worked well with others. After 15 years of service she decided it was time to retire.
Jan worked in the Nazarene Daycare for 10 years, including several years as a supervisor. As with many long time employees, she worked in many different areas, but her specialty was working with infants and toddlers. She added many personal finishing touches to the toddler area, making it very bright, beautiful and comfortable home-like setting.
