Myra Johnson- Head Director

My name is Myra Johnson and I am the Head Director.

I completed the Early Childhood Education program in 1999 and have been in the field ever since.  I completed the Infant Toddler program in 2008. Over the years I have worked with children from 6 months to 11 years; as an educator, supervisor, manager and coordinator. I am passionate and committed to working with young children and look forward to making great memories with the families at Little Willows Child Care.

I live in a float home community on the Fraser River with my husband and dog. We enjoy traveling the world, fishing and camping!

Loredana Dima OSC/Preschool Supervisor

My name is Loredana Dima and I am absolutely thrilled to be part of Little Willows’ team!

I was born and raised in Romania and my husband Liviu and I moved to Canada in 2011.

I hold a Bachelor’s Degree in English Literature and Teaching from Romania and I completed the Early Childhood Education Program at Ridge Meadows College, in June 2016. I love working with children as I believe that by giving them love, opportunities and confidence, we can help them reach their full potential and support their dreams.

I live in Maple Ridge with my husband, and in my spare time I love traveling, swimming and reading.

Kellie Pay- Preschool/OSC Educator

Hello, my name is Kellie and I'm so excited to be a part of the Little Willows team. I've been working in the Early Childhood field for about 14 years. However, I have been working with children off and on since I was 16 years.

I have two beautiful girls who are the light of my life. Lillie is 6 yrs old and Selina is 4 yrs old. When I'm not playing with my girls you can find me reading books, knitting a new exciting pattern, or doing something crafty. 

I can't wait to meet all of you and your children.
