Who We Are
Profound Play and Learning strives to create a safe learning and care experience for young children ages 12 months to 5 years and their families - enabling them to feel confident, heard and appreciated while supporting children’s desire to become life-long learners. Through developmentally appropriate and stimulating learning opportunities for children, we will promote the holistic (social, emotional, physical and cognitive) development of each child. We endeavour to have families feel valued and to be a welcomed part of the long-term growth of Profound Play and Learning.

Jessica is a mother, passionate educator and Founder of Books, Bees and ABCs. Having taught in New Brunswick schools, Jessica has become aware of the crucial first experiences with education outside of a child’s home. As a member of the Research in Early Childhood Development Initiative Team at the University of Prince Edward Island, Jessica contributed her expertise toward a major research project involving Action Research in the Early Years field. In particular, she researched the role of play on the holistic development of children and the efficacy of play-based learning in Early Years on Prince Edward Island in partnership with the Early Childhood Development Association of Prince Edward Island. From this, grew an admiration for those who work to enrich the lives of children and the role that these individuals play in the learning journey of children. Having her own child solidified the need for an Early Years learning centre that allowed for holistic development.

From this, grew the vision for Profound Play and Learning.
