Hi, my name is Tashelle, and I am the Operations Manager at Muskoka Lakes Preschool! I am a Registered Early Childhood Educator with a variety of experiences working in childcare centres, the school board, recreation centres, and managerial positions. My role consists of ensuring efficient admin operations of the centre while working alongside the Management Team and Board of Directors to best serve children and families! I relocated from Ottawa where I was born & raised and I am so passionate about the field of Early Childhood Education! I will prioritize ensuring licensing requirements are met in compliance with Child Care Early Years Act (CCEYA) and the Ministry of Education. I am excited to plan and oversee all aspects of the preschool and ensure a smooth operation!

          Carrolyn Voisin

Hi, my name is Carrolyn and I am the Cook at MLP! I have owned and operated a small Deli and a family restaurant in Bala known as the The Hook & Ladder! I attended Glen Orchard as a child and it’s great to be back walking the familiar halls again, after all these years. In April 2021, I was diagnosed with Primary Progressive Multiple Sclerosis.
I love cooking and working with children, so joining MLP was a good fit! I am very happy to be a part of the MLP Team! The children are so sweet and I have really enjoyed getting to know each one of them. The staff is wonderful and has made me feel very welcomed. If my MS allows me, I will be here for years to come!
