  About Me

My name is Tessa Edgar. I am a certified Level 2 Child Development Worker with diverse background and experience. I attained my Level 2 through a Psychology degree in which I focused on child development. While completing my psychology degree I volunteered at ABC Head Start, a wonderful organization that lends immense support to children and families, and at a psychology research lab that focused on children social emotional development. Through these two volunteer experiences I learned the intricacies of children’s development and how important it is to have a strong system of support in place for not only children but also their families. Following my graduation I set out to attain a job wherein I could become part of a support system that fosters children’s growth.
My employment at a daycare in Camrose, AB led to a greatly increased understanding of the needs and delightfulness of children. I initially worked as a secondary staff in a toddler and preschool room and then in a few months took over the primary role in the preschool room. I have worked closely with Inclusion Alberta, which gave me professional development to set up strategies in my room to assist me in the development of inclusive practices. After moving from Camrose to Calgary I worked both in a Kindergarten classroom and with the Society for the Treatment of Autism as an Early Intervention Therapist. I also worked as a nanny for a sweet 2 year old boy before returning to a child care centre after my contract ended.
The knowledge I have gained from a psychology degree, my experience in different settings, and my work experience makes me a worker with a unique set of skills that could add new energy and ideas to any setting.
