Ashley Wynne

Aaniin, Ashley n'dizhnikaas, Miskwedesi Dodem niinda'aw, Nogojiwanong n'doonjibaa.

I see your light, I am called Ashley, I belong to Turtle Clan, and my community is Peterborough. 

I am an Anishinaabe woman with a passion for learning my indigenous language and culture and sharing it with others. I am an Early Childhood Educator and a Recreation and Leisure Services professional who has worked with children in licensed childcare settings for over 15 years. An even more motivating driver for my interest is being an indigenous mother of 4 who is always looking for ways to connect my children to their culture and support their learning.

I have home-schooled my 3 children throughout the pandemic and have been successful in bringing not only language but also many other cultural practices into our daily education routine and have ensured my children have kept up with the Ontario curriculum which is our families’ goals. 

I have strengthened and updated my communication and computer skills throughout the 4 years of post-secondary that and have taken 2 business courses, introductions to 'Small Business Strategies', and 'Finance, Administration, Revenue'. I have also taken college courses in child development, guidance, and health. I have learned about culture and inclusion and how to work with families.  

I have an up-to-date Standard First Aid and CPR Training Certificate and a current Criminal Record Check with vulnerable Sector Check.
