Our Staff

 Pat Thompson, Executive Director
With over 40 years of experience and continued involvement in all aspects of child care from Director of Operations for nine centres in the GTA to Executive Director of a thriving daycare in North Oakville, I am excited to now bring my child care vision to Little Feet Big Dreams.

My goal is to bring an enriched, stimulating curriculum to all our classes, from infants to preschool, emphasizing the need to balance a nurturing environment with a strong educational program.

I am dedicated to improving the level of quality at Little Feet Big Dreams where all our children will have an opportunity to learn and gain self-confidence while interacting with their peers. They will develop social skills as they participate in planned music and story time and demonstrate their creative abilities through sensory and manipulative play.

A nurturing environment is the foundation for all our children to grow and develop in a positive learning environment, and our dedicated teachers are committed to upholding this principal.

Each and every child is valued at Little Feet Big Dreams and they will leave our centre having been challenged and motivated.



 Christine Sharp, Assistant Supervisor and Head Toddler Teacher
I decided to become a child caregiver because I want to make a difference in the lives of children. I am passionate about being a part of their upbringing and watching them grow.

I am an Honours ECE graduate from Mohawk College, and have experience in various levels of childcare including special needs children.

I love being a part of Little Feet Big Dreams because of the opportunities it opens for me. I am led by such great management, and I am given the chance to develop my skills at the same time as developing this new centre from the bottom up.

In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family, and friends. I also enjoy reading.



 Heather van Konynenburg, Head Preschool Teacher
I am an Early Childhood Educator graduate from Sheridan College. I graduated in 2007, and have worked in various childcare centers since then. I have also worked with children with special needs. I enjoy spending my free time with my friends and family as well as volunteering within the community as a Girl Guide leader.

I am honored to become a part of the team at Little Feet Big Dreams. I look forward to learning many new skills from the great management of the center. It has given me the opportunity to better my self as an early childhood educator as well as to share my skills with both team members and children. I am looking forward to becoming the lead E.C.E opening the infant classroom within Little Feet Big Dreams.

I look forward to providing quality care for your children and welcoming their smiling faces each and every day!
