To motivate children and stimulate their natural curiosity, Marie-Êve Thérien practices active listening and involves them directly in creating their education program. She conveys her values of respect and acceptance of differences, allowing them to develop a positive image of themselves.

Support for child development

  • Gives shared reading sessions in which the children must take part by making comments and asking questions.

  • Demonstrates an exemplary ability to work as part of a team and support trainees' skills development.
