Alexandra May (M.Ed, B.A) is the Director and Founder of Rhyme and Reason Early Learning. As a children's programmer she has worked for years in the fields of Childcare and Education in organizations around the city such as Gymboree Play and Learn, The YMCA, The City of Calgary, the Calgary Public Library, and as a friend of the National Parent-Child Mother Goose Program of Canada. She received her degree in English Language and Literature from the University of Calgary and studied at Lancaster University in the UK. She received her Masters of Education in Educational Psychology and Multiliteracies Pedagogy, with a focus on ADHD in the Early Years. She is an active volunteer with the First 2000 Days Network, ECMMA, her local ECMAP Coalition, and in various Community Arts programs in Calgary. Alex is happiest working with children, who make much more sense to her than grown-ups.
Becky recently graduated from the Early Learning and Child Care Diploma Program at Bow Valley College in pursuit of her goal of becoming a Preschool Teacher. She has many years of Childcare experience, including as a Preschool Instructor, Private Nanny, Advanced-Kindergarten Teacher, and as a volunteer for various children's programs in Calgary and Cochrane. Working in this variety of child care settings has given her the profound gift of watching children of every age grow, explore, and create, and she can't wait to co-learn with hundreds of more children in the years to come. A career in education has been her dream since she was a preschooler herself, and she looks forward to the learning experiences she will get to foster in her own classroom at Rhyme and Reason.
