Darlene Zamluk


Darlene Zamluk, a west coast gramma from Campbell River, BC, has spent a lifetime playing with children. Her career as an Early primary teacher has enabled her to weave her love of music, art and the outdoors into her daily play with the children.

Her idea of an ideal day is grabbing her jacket and a grandchild and going to the ocean or rainforest for a walk or play.
