Meet Our Teachers

Gabrielle Brune

As a registered Early Childhood educator, I have over 25 years of experience working in the field. I am a member of the College of Early Childhood Education as well as the AECEO.  I am also trained in First Aid and CPR.

I have enjoyed being a teacher at the Carp Cooperative Nursery School since 2012 and I feel fortunate to be part of this school community.  I love interacting with the children and encouraging their curious, creative minds. I take great pleasure in watching them learn.  My goal is to ensure that every child thrives in our safe, loving and nurturing environment.  I am also passionate about inclusion in the classroom and I believe all children can succeed in a positive setting.

In my free time, I love to read and I enjoy camping, canoeing and being outdoors in general.
