Malmo Elementary School
Welcome to Malmo Site! We are a three room day care and out of school care providing childcare for children attending both Malmo School and Greenfield School. Our educators strongly believe in taking our curriculum where it goes with the children. Our practice is to build a path alongside the children, rather than paving it for them. At Malmo, we have a diverse team of educators coming from many different teaching and learning experiences.
“Observe and listen to children because when they as “why?” they are not simply asking for the answer from you. They are requesting the courage to find a collection of possible answers.”
- Carlina Rinaldi

For those of you I haven’t had the chance to meet yet, my name is Lindsey MacNeil, and I am the Director here. As you may know, this year Greenfield School Age Day Care Association (GSADCA) has opened 4 new programs, totaling 7 programs on the south side of Edmonton. 3 of our new programs are located in brand new Edmonton Public Schools: Shauna May, Jan Reimer, and Svend Hansen. It is going to be a great school year with many learnings and growths. At GSADCA, we believe that our childcare rooms are places of vitality that welcome and invite the participation of children and their families. If you have suggestions on experiences, or want to donate materials, please do. We are open to your ideas, and want this program to truly be a reflection of the children and families it serves. We also follow the Alberta Early Learning and Child Care Curriculum Framework. This framework acts as a guide to our practice and helps us be reflective, thoughtful educators. We view children as learners and citizens. The role of the GSADCA Educator is to work within a practice of relationships, this is with both children, and their families. Educators make learning potential visible when they notice, name and nurture children’s learning dispositions. We build the path with the children. From this, you can look forward to receiving Learning Stories. Learning Stories are written by the educator, about you child, which make their learning and growth visible. They are quite meaningful and I hope you enjoy receiving them, as much as we enjoy writing them. If you have any questions or want more information, please do not hesitate to talk to myself, or your Assistant Director. We are here to help and ensure that your time with us is meaningful and valuable to your family All the best, Lindsey MacNeil
