The Dream Team

Who We Are

Megan Graham

Operations Lead & Facilitator

Megan is a mother of three who has been working with children and families for over a decade. She has worked in childcare settings with children from infants to school age and has been honoured to support growing families as a doula as well. 

 

Megan is passionate about helping children unleash their creativity and explore the world around them! She is especially interested in connecting children with nature and the important role that the natural world can play in a child's development. Megan is keenly aware of the crucial role that parents and caregivers play in a child's early development and is eager to support families as they take an active and intentional role in their child's early learning!

 

In her free time, Megan enjoys exploring Toronto with her 3 kids and partner. They especially enjoy High Park, Centre Island, the Toronto Zoo, Glen Stewart Ravine, and Riverdale Farm (fun fact: Megan also has a certificate in Animal Care from Durham College, which she completed by doing a field placement at a goat farm!).
