Nicole Cedeno
Executive Director
Hi my name is Nicole Cedeno and I am the Executive Director at Glenora Child Care Society.

I first became apart of the Glenora Child Care community in 2001 when I did a practicum field placement and then became an Educator here the following year. During my time at GCCS I have worked in the OSC, chickadee, shark, Sunshine room and then moved into Program Director role in 2016 and Executive Director role In 2017. In 2015 GCCS became not only a place I work but also the centre that my daughter would also attend and be her community and early learning foundation. I have been very fortunate to find a work place where I am able to incorporate my passion for working with children, families and alongside an amazing group of Educators. 

The thing I enjoy most about working with children is their curiosity and smile. Children have this natural sense of curiosity that can make adults stop and look at things from a different perspective, and through them giving us a new lense, perspective and understanding of the world. Children’s smile, no matter what could be happening in a day when you walk into a room full of smiles it’s contagious, there is nothing more pure, funny, sweet and mischievous as a child’s smile, and you can’t help but smile and laugh in return.

Melissa (D) here! I am here in Edmonton all the way from the north shore of Quebec, where I was born and raised and spent every day of my childhood on the beach! I studied at Bishop’s University there, where I got a Bachelor of Education and a Bachelor of Arts. In my spare time I like to spend quality time with my family and my pets. I also volunteer for a local animal rescue, where I help with social media and fostering rabbits and other critters! I’ve been working in childcare for nearly a decade, and I love how every day is something different and new. I enjoy getting to see the world through the child’s eye, and getting to laugh and play every day!
