Extra Steps Owner/Company Director
Robb received his Early Childhood Education Diploma from Mount Royal University, Alberta and has worked with young children for more than fifteen years in a wide variety of fun-filled programs. He is well known in Vancouver where he co-owns and operates Extra Steps Learning Centres and been an advocate for children for many years.
During his long career, Robb has directed childcare centres and family childcare homes, designed and worked with summer camps, taught workshops, owned and operated three preschool programs, and assisted with facility openings. He was also an instructor for an ECE college program. When in the centres, if possible, he works directly with children, something for which he has both natural talent and boundless enthusiasm.
“I have enjoyed my career path and my choices over the years,” says Robb, who has also enjoyed overseeing the growth and development of his own grown boys. Robb is especially eager to share his talents and knowledge about early childhood education with other educators and with the families of children at Extra Steps.
