I am writing this letter to recommend Victoria Bayer and the Play Full Minds Pre-School.  Vicki is an outstanding early childhood educator.  She was a dedicated DECE at Ballantrae PS for the four years that I was a principal at Ballantrae PS, from 2014 to 2018.  Her passion, enthusiasm, and commitment to children was demonstrated daily through her work with both staff and students. 


Vicki is a lifelong learner who searches for new and innovative strategies based on educational research to meet the differentiated needs of the children she works with.  She collaborates with the families of her students to ensure that their academic, social, emotional, and physical needs are being met.  Her outgoing personality and approachable manner enable her to build relationships with people and work with colleagues and families. 


I have known Vicki to be professional, accommodating, and conscientious at all times.  She demonstrates excellent rapport with children, colleagues, and families and is aware of the need to be flexible and adaptable.  She also shows great initiative in looking for ways to make learning experiences fun and meaningful for all children.  I wish her much success with the Play Full Minds Pre-School.

I have had the privilege of teaching with Vicki Bayer in a full-day kindergarten for several years. She brought many strengths to the classroom. Vicki was always caring, empathetic and patient with our students. As a teacher she brought with her the knowledge and understanding of the development of young learners. She designed activities, games and art projects meeting the children at their level but at the same time prompting them forward in their skills and understanding. Vicki’s enthusiasm, creativity, sense of humour and passion for working with young children is outstanding.
