Meet the Inspiring Minds Team


The most important indicator of quality in an early learning centre is the teaching staff. The educators at Inspiring Minds are trained, registered Early Childhood Educators or apprenticing as a Child Development Practitioner. All are educators are selected for their warmth and enjoyment of children as well as their knowledge of child development and their mastery of skills involved in the field of Early Childhood Education.

Director: Krista Schott, RECE:

I am Krista Schott and am the director of Inspiring Minds. I have been in the Early Childhood field for 30 years and at Inspiring Minds since its inception. The best part of my work day is the pitter-patter of little feet entering the office to either share a story, wave good-bye from the window, read a book together or for some hugs! I am inspired by the joy and sense of wonder in a child’s eyes as she or he goes through their day. I believe that when one gives the best, one gets the best in return and am awed by the dedication of  the educators and Board. I am truly honoured to be part of our team!

Supervisor: Faye Jantzi, RECE:

I am Faye Jantzi and I have been part of Inspiring Minds from its beginning.  I have had the privilege of watching IMELC grow from a vision, to serving a handful of  families, to providing care for over 75 children each year.  Each child and family plays an important role in our centre and there is an overwhelming sense of support and caring for one another.  It is just like having one large extended family! I currently work part time in the office as the supervisor, as well as the being the educator in the Part Time Preschool program. I appreciate the support and guidance I receive from the staff and Board to continue to learn and grow professionally.  One of my mottos is “You can do anything with help!”

I have worked at Inspiring Minds since the summer of 2017. Prior to that I was fortunate to complete one of my field placements here. During my placement, I was able to begin making connections and build relationships. I currently work in Toddlerville and have had the opportunity to work in the school age, kindergarten and summer camp programs. I love working at Inspiring Minds because of the children, families and my co-workers! They make work and learning fun for us all!
