Our Teachers

Sabrina Allain- Director

My name is Sabrina and I am absolutely thrilled to be a teacher at Little Willows!  I am currently the Director/Manager at our 119th and Edge St locations.  I have had the pleasure of working with Reaghan for many years and so happy to be a part of Little Willows! We share the same vision of working closely with families to provide the best quality childcare. I am a mother to 3 young children and this makes it easy for me to relate to families and their busy schedules!

In Reggio Emilia the saying is "It takes a Village to raise a child" and I look forward to being a part of that with Little Willows and all the families!

Lisa Bennett- Assistant Director

My name is Lisa Bennett and I am the Assistant Director. I am an educator in the 3-5 room. I completed my ECE program in 2007 and have been in the field ever since. Prior to that I taught gymnastics to children of all ages for many years! I have been with my husband since 2008, we got married in 2011 and I gave birth to our son is 2015.

Helen Marquez

My name is Helen and I have worked with Little Willows since 2017. I love working with the Toddlers and watching them grow everyday. 
On my free time I like to spend time with my children and husband. I always enjoy spending time with the Toddlers and all their creativity and imagination. 

Chantel Rawson- Infant Supervisor

My name is Chantel Rawson and I love working with children. When I went to school for my Special Needs Education I decided to go for my Infants and Toddlers training as well. Little did I know that I would fall in love with teaching them. When a child learns a new thing on their own and they feel that accomplishment nothing else can compete. The best part of my day is going home with a big smile on my face because of the things I helped the children accomplish.

I believe the families of the children are part of my family. It really does take a community to raise a child and I'm glad that I get to help so many families raise wonderful children.

Sabrina Spencer- Infant Educator

I have Early Childhood, Infant and Toddler as well as Special Needs Education. I have worked with children for over 8 years and I absolutely love it with a passion. The majority of my employment was at Seabird Island Daycare in Agassiz. It was most enjoyable working with the children and their families.

I recently moved to a wonderful farm in Maple Ridge where I live with my family. I have been with my terrific husband for fourteen wonderful years. and have a beautiful 3 year old daughter who I adore. She is my pride and joy. My favorite Colour is Purple. and my hobbies are swimming, horses, and family outings. I look forward to being a part of this daycare. working and caring for the children and building a relationship with the parents.
