Great Nana- ECE Assistant


Flo Van Essen has worked at Wee Scholars since opening in 2012 and has truly been a blessing for Miss Vanessa and the children. Not only is she an extra pair of hands throughout the week when she volunteers, but the children truly enjoy having a grandmother figure to cuddle, sing songs, read stories, and spoil them. Flo says often, it is the children that keep her young and she is excited to spend many more years with Wee Scholars.
