Vanessa Al Achkar

Early Childhood Specialist and Childcare Supervisor
My job is not only teaching french and giving the kids all the care they deserve but also to make each parent feel the secure atmosphere and be proud of our team.

I can tell that I'm a multitasker, filled with positive energy always, especially when I'm next to the kids.

My work is my passion, and it’s where I spend a huge effort knowing that in return I'll see my class’s success and my children’s improvements.

I call them “my children” because their success is mine. I give each one of them the same love, but teach them based on their capacities and their needs after observing their strengths and weaknesses.

Rein El Maarawi

Early Childhood Specialist and Education Supervisor
I’ve graduated from LAU with a bachelor's degree in education. I’ve been part of Milestones team for a year now.

I can say my work here is another “milestone” of achievement. Where I stand now is because of the experience I’m gaining everyday and every minute I spend with the kids.

Watching them grow wiser, learn new things and improve their skills brings joy and satisfaction to my heart.

I’m looking forward to my journey at this extraordinary center.

Stephanie Prince

Caregiver
I’m half french and half Lebanese. I joined Milestones team not long ago but I already feel part of the family. I like the joyful environment that working with children can bring.

I’m a clinical psychology master degree student with a psycho-analysis orientation.

I believe that if we teach children to be independent from an early age, they will have the skills to manage whatever situation they will face in life and I’m happy to contribute to helping them become the best version of themselves.

Mouni Maatouk

Caregiver
I feel beyond lucky to be apart of Milestones team for 6 months now. It's been a blast working with such smart, attentive, and crazy kids!

I immigrated to Canada at the age of 17, finished my education and then graduated college with a personal support worker degree.

Caring for humans has always been a passion of mine. I like being the positive vibes at work, and home! I'm very energetic, and love when my positive vibes rubs off on the children.

I adore the children I see, talk, and eat with everyday.

I am thankful to be apart of their lives and hope I can enhance and strengthen their future.

Education is like building a house; it's base is much more important than the decor...that's why my main focus is to help my students build that base.

Hiyam Alti

I graduated from Saint Joseph University with my License in Special Education, focused on Human and Child Development.

Working with kids has always been a passion of mine, that’s why I am now part of Milestones team for nearly 6 months.

Working with children makes me happy and fulfilled. There is no better feeling than knowing you have helped to brighten a child’s day and seeing their faces and expressions while they experience and learn new things.

I look forward to what the future will bring for me at Milestones and making long memories with the little ones.
