  • Haley Lefebvre: Having spent most of my life growing up on the West side of Winnipeg and in the Interlake, in 2016, my husband and I decided to relocate our family to Ste. Anne to be closer to our family cottage. This simple, convenient decision unexpectedly opened up a multitude of opportunities I had never imagined. I became the Executive Director at Children of the Universe and quickly fell in love with this community, its services, and the wonderful people I met through these connections. Since then, I have enjoyed engaging with various sectors in the community to support the growth of child care services in the town and networking to bolster various community events and organizations. I look forward to continuing to cultivate these personal and professional relationships, with the goal of fostering positive growth for the future.
