Pedagogy of play certificate and Non- violent crisis intervention training.

B rittany has over 12 years of experience working with children and youth. She has a child development assistant certificate, children's mental health certificate and attended MacEwan University for a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology and Psychology. Brittany started her career as a preschool teacher. After 6 amazing years there she had the opportunity to be an aide for an incredible child with autism for her final year. Following that she was employed as a child development facilitator coordinator and worked closely with Speech language pathologists, behavioral therapists and occupational therapists while she trained interventionists to support their clients with creative and educational activities specifically designed to achieve their developmental goals. In this role many families shared their struggle to find reliable and consistent childcare. After seeing this need Serenity Respite was created.
