By Simone Penner, Director of BH Beginnings

Arpna Kansara, Child Care Assistant at BH Beginnings, is the 2019 recipient of Manitoba Child Care Association’s Exceptional Caregiver Award, which recognizes an individual who has demonstrated outstanding ability in the work environment thorough professionalism, team spirit, and pursuit of excellence in the child care field.

In November 2014, Ms Kansara began her work with BH Beginnings child care program for girls ages 2 and 3 as an Inclusion Specialist. It quickly became clear how passionate Arpna was about children. She went above and beyond, ensuring that all the children in her care were safe, happy, and given opportunities to grow and develop. What was originally intended as a term became a full-time employment opportunity, and she has been offering her incredible care, empathy, and dedication ever since.

Arpna is an enthusiastic, efficient, hardworking, and proactive educator with strong interpersonal skills who decided (after completing a Bachelor of Commerce) that her lifelong passion is to work with children.

"I love being surrounded by them, and I get immense pleasure in nurturing their abilities," she says. "As a Child Care Assistant, my goal is to promote the physical, social, emotional, and cognitive development of each child under my care."

Arpna is a valued employee of Balmoral Hall School, and we are thrilled that she has been recognized for her outstanding dedication to being her very best self as an educator.

She will receive her award at a special MCCA event in late May.
