My name is Viktoriya Rimdap and I am the Hawks Kids Program Coordinator and a Level 3 Early Childhood Educator. I have over ten years of experience working with children from 0 to 12 years old in a variety of settings including family daycare, Forest kindergarten, private schools, and church ministries. I am excited and blessed to be able to serve you and your children through the Hawks Kids program at HCA. Every child is unique and so is the care we need to provide them with. I love children unconditionally and believe in inclusion and opportunities for each and every child. I love nature, camping, biking, running and sushi; but most of all, I love spending quality time with my three children. Please come and speak with me if you have any questions about Hawks Kids.
"Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men..."

"'Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus."

Hello Hawks Parents!! My name is Erin Mandan and I am an Early Childhood Educator. I grew up in Calgary but spent my 20's living in Ontario, Quebec & traveling the world. 4 years ago I made a Career change and decided to finally follow my passion of working with children.
I am educated as a Montessori Teacher but have had the pleasure to work in a Reggio school as well, so I am familiar with different aspects of teaching children. I am so grateful to God he has lead me to where I am today and that I am blessed to be able to teach your children through God's words. I have a beautiful 5 year-old daughter who is my best friend! We love being outdoors camping, hiking, quadding, snowboarding, skating, tobogganing and riding our bikes.
