Roya Martinek – Owner/Operator
I am Roya Martinek the owner of Ilderton Bizzy Bees Day Care Center. I am honored to provide such a service for my community. I’ve been in Canada since 1995. I graduated from grade 12 in 1997 and in 1999 graduated as a PSW (personal support worker). While I attended school I worked in the restaurant industry and worked my way up from dishwasher to restaurant management. I moved to Ilderton in 2002 with my husband Michael. In 2007 we had our biggest surprise, our son Stefan. I love to be active and work closely within my community. I have lots of friends and enjoy spending time with them. I also enjoy organizing the Ilderton Craft Show, which is held twice a year before Mother’s Day and Christmas.
My name is Lisa Nightingale. My educational background includes a Bachelor’s Degree in Political Science from the University of Western Ontario and a Diploma in Business Administration from Northern Alberta Institute of Technology. Over the years I have taken several courses that specialize in Early Childhood Development and am currently working towards my Early Childhood Education Diploma through Loyalist College.
Prior to working at Bizzy Bees Daycare Center, I spent 11 years working with families and young children from Middlesex County and surrounding area, as a support facilitator. During this time, I delivered a number of literacy programs to assist children with school readiness skills, as well as facilitating other programs that foster independence, self-regulation, and positive social skills. I have a genuine love for working with children as they are often the best teachers in the room.
I live in Ilderton with my wonderful husband, three fantastic kids and our beloved dog Winnie!
