Preschool Teachers

Doris Lloyd

Hi, my name is Ms. Lloyd, and I am the early learning educator in the Tuesday/Thursday preschool program. Since 2012 I have been working in various early childhood settings. FCB has been my work home since 2018 where I have been an educational assistant working in both the FCB kindergarten and preschool programs. My passion is working with young minds and seeing them develop throughout the year!

I have 3 amazing sons who I love spending time with. I enjoy music, working out, organizing, and spending time with family and friends in my free time.

Michele Steier

I am Mrs. Steier and I am the Preschool Director for both our Cochrane and Calgary locations along with the Monday/Wednesday/Friday early learning educator in Cochrane. I have been working in preschool settings since 2007 both as an educational assistant working with children with exceptional needs and as a preschool educator. I studied early childhood education and development, I am a level 3 early childhood educator (child development supervisor), and certified in Flight; Alberta’s early learning and care curriculum. I have been an educator at FCB since 2013 and became the Preschool Director in 2020.

I believe that preschool is an opportunity for children to develop their love of learning and grow within a caring learning community. I am passionate about actively supporting children’s unique development and providing occasions for children to acquire knowledge and skills by building on their existing competencies. I pride myself on building secure relationships with each child and creating a responsive, play-based environment.

I live in Cochrane with my husband, daughter, and our 3 cats. In my personal time I, enjoy camping, gardening, and painting.
