Who We Are

Edinburgh PSA is parent-run and community-based. Our board members and many of our staff are parents from within the community with a vested interest in the programs and activities we offer.

A Word From the Staff

Jacqui, director

Edinburgh PSA has always been special to me. My children both attended Edinburgh and PSA, and it was always a home away from home for them. I started working in the PSA 23 years ago, during which I also worked with children suffering from autism, and PSA has always been a friendly, family environment where the children are the priority.

During the past 6 years as director, my goal has been to make PSA even more accessible and flexible for all of Edinburgh’s families. From working with the children, to helping out families through the many challenges of life, I love my job, and having the children tell me they love an activity or wish they were with us every day makes it one of the most gratifying things I do. A smile and a hug are what make our jobs the best!

Stephanie, assistant director and grade 6 homework supervisor

Having been a student at Edinburgh myself, I find it very rewarding to be in an environment where I can give back to the community and the children. Both my children attended Edinburgh and PSA, and these experiences left a lasting impression on them; to this day they love to return.

I’ve worked in the PSA for 20 years now, and when I encounter parents who used to go to school with me, and are now bringing their children to Edinburgh and PSA, it reinforces how special PSA really is. I am so thankful to be able to take part in the day-to-day running of our wonderful program.
