Erica Lui RECE

Registered Early Childhood Educator

My name is Erica Lui and I have been working as an Early Childhood Educator for 11 years. I graduated with a diploma from Humber College and a Bachelor's degree in Sociology from York University. I joined the LCCC team in 2015 and it has become my second home. Shaping and nurturing the development of little ones has always been a passion of mine, including building relationships with children and their families because I believe it is an imperative aspect of our field. You may see me around laughing and dancing with the children as it is one of my favourite things to do so don’t hesitate to say hello if you do!

My name is Meredith and I have over twenty years of experience working in childcare. I have a Montessori diploma in Early Childhood Education. I believe wholeheartedly in following the child’s lead and that education goes beyond the classroom. I love music, dancing and arts and crafts. I try my best to make all of this part of my classroom program. I like to incorporate fun and creativity in our classroom and provide new ways of learning. It is my job to ensure that your child loves coming into the classroom and leaves happy at the end of the day.

Cathy Noseworthy

Lead Educator

My name is Cathy. I started out my career in childcare, offering families a safe, loving and nurturing environment in my Etobicoke home that continued for over 15 years.   

In 1999 I attended the Learning Enrichment Foundation and obtained my  ECA Certificate.  In 2000 I accepted a position at LCCC and then took many childcare-related courses at St. Lawrence College.  I've had the opportunity to work in School-age, Kindergarten, Preschool and Toddler rooms over the last 20 years. I enjoy every aspect of teaching and have realized in my years that my kids teach us as much as we teach them. In the summer you can find me at my trailer up North tending my garden and enjoying great evenings with friends around our bonfires.
