We currently employ 2 regular educators at our St. Elizabeth location. We strive to hire qualified, knowledgeable educators with an educational background and experience in the field of Early Childhood Education. A knowledge of child development, an awareness of the Indigenous traditions, culture, and language is essential. Everyone at our centre works together as a team to provide a positive, responsive environment geared towards children and families.
The school age program is based on meeting the unique individual needs of the school-aged child in an informal, relaxed environment in which each child can make activity choices within a recreational atmosphere. The educator will provide stimulating, challenging, and fun experiences through creative art, science and exploration, language, and physical activities. These activities intertwine with the Indigenous culture, promoting identity, language, and culture retention for the children.
