Laneathea Headrick

Early Childhood Educator

Hello, my name is Laneathea, Lyn for short :) Ever since I could remember I have always wanted to play a big part in children's education. As I was growing up, I would play "school" and have always wanted to be a mom. I was most certain that I wanted to work in childcare in high school and took the Early Childhood Education course after graduating. I have been in the child care field since 2004 with time off in between raising my 3 children. I'm dedicated to creating stimulating play experiences, imaginative arts and a safe atmosphere for each child's individual needs. I believe in working in partnership with parents, welcoming ideas and encouraging comments and suggestions regarding their child(ren). I enjoy family fun activities, including camping tobogganing and going for walks. I look forward to meeting new faces!

Kyla Joyal 

Responsible Adult

Hi my name is Kyla Joyal, I started working at Teeter Tots in March 2021. I have my responsible adult certificate, first aid and I'm determined to expand my knowledge in Childcare Education! I've always loved working with children from the many babysitting jobs and growing up with younger siblings. It's definitely rewarding watching them grow & learn and knowing that we had a part in creating a positive environment where they can enjoy and feel safe. During my free time I like to be outdoors, either travelling new places, hiking, camping or fishing! I also like to spend my time with my son, other family members and friends. I'm grateful to be working with such an amazing company that has all our children's benefits in mind!
