Vision & Mission
Committed to making a difference in the life of a child, their family and the community by offering Christian education, academic curriculum and opportunities to grow in God's love.
Founder & CEO
Angela Girgis has been in the business of owning and operating childcare centres for 25 years.
She is a Registered Early Childhood Educator with a depth of experience in the field as an educator, lead teacher, cook, Supervisor and now, Senior Director and Operator. She established a childcare centre to ensure that children had an environment in which they would thrive in a Christian setting. Her involvement as an advisor and consultant has given her the experience and equipped her with the skills to initiate and build a model of her current childcare business. Angie founded the original Angelic Treasures Christian Childcare Centre in Mississauga in 2003. Her love for children coupled with her passion for the childcare industry has propelled her in building several successful centres over the years. She also volunteers on various Boards and has accumulated a wealth of experience in the construction, design and operations of childcare centres.
Angie's hope for the future is for Angelic Treasures to grow and expand worldwide so that every child in every one of the Angelic Treasures Centres has a voice. They are cared for like home and loved and cherished as the treasures they truly are. Angie's heart is set on establishing a charity that will raise money to build orphanages around the globe.
Managing Partner & COO

Sylvia Martignani, Chief Operating Officer and Managing Partner with Angela Girgis, is a seasoned Registered Early Childhood Educator and Ontario Certified Teacher. She considers her three children her greatest work thus far. She is a mommy blogger, columnist, public speaker, instructor, trainer and mentor. Sylvia enjoys ongoing learning and values integrity and honesty above all else. Her expertise in working with special needs children combined with her education, including a Specialized Honours Degree in Child and Adolescent Psychology, makes her the perfect fit as managing partner for the Angelic Treasures brand. Sylvia brings her 12 years experience in the franchise industry to Angelic Treasures and this is why, as Angie always says, they are "equally yoked".
Sylvia's hope for the future is for Angelic Treasures to grow and expand worldwide so that every child has access to an equally caring and warm childcare centre. Her ulterior motive for this business has always been her true heart's desire, to make enough money to build orphanages globally so that no child is ever left behind.
