Rachel Labranche, RECE
Rachel Labranche was always passionate about Early Childhood Education and therefore decided to pursue further studies in ECE at Conestoga College. After graduating from the ECE program in 2004, she was hired as a preschool/toddler teacher at Owl Childcare Services in Kitchener Ontario. She gained valuable experience at this licensed center for 2 years before moving to Ottawa. As an RECE, Rachel worked in different jobs such as a nanny and a YMCA childcare centre. After the birth of her second child she started a home based daycare which she ran for 6.5 years. Rachel has had a very close connection to TOPS since her daughter and daycare children used to attend the preschool. She was very pleased with the positive experience that her daughter experienced and is very excited to join the TOPS teaching team this year. Rachel is one of our full time teachers and teaches in all of the Full-Day Preschool Program.
