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!

Jenna Gough 

Responsible Adult

Hey everyone, I’m Jenna and I’ve been working at Teeter Tots since the summer of 2020. I have my responsible adult, first aid, and other smaller training certificates related to childcare. It’s been awesome getting to know all of the kids so well … I miss them when I’m not working! I am currently in my fourth year of nursing at UNBC and after I graduate I would absolutely love a position on the pediatrics unit. When I’m not working or studying, I enjoy being with friends and family, camping, fishing, snowboarding, or just curling up on the couch and watching Netflix. Thanks for reading a bit about me

Madison Hoy

Responsible Adult

Hello! My name is Madison! I am 19 years old and a student at the University of Northern British Columbia looking to become an elementary school teacher. I have just recently moved to Prince George from Williams Lake and am enjoying it so far! The biggest difference for me is having to leave my puppies with my mom! I have always loved animals and have always had one at my side. I have 2 dogs at home - Trudy and Ralphie. They both have a huge unique personality of their own and never fail to lighten the mood or make you laugh. Also living in Williams Lake, is my little sister. From the time that she was born she was my person. I have always been there for her, and her for me. Working at Teeter Tots, obviously, gives me the chance to have the interaction with children that I miss from her so much. So far, working at Teeter Tots has been an amazing experience and I am thoroughly enjoying getting to know all of the kiddos!
