Strong Start Facilitator
A casual on-call position working in Strong Start programs.
Promoting academic, social and personal development; honouring diversity; encouraging equity and practicing democratic governance—these are our guiding principles every day. With the wide variety of programs we offer in 32 schools, every one of our almost 16,000 students has an opportunity to be successful. With specialty programs like Band and Strings, French immersion, Artists for Kids, International Baccalaureate, Aboriginal education, Distributed Learning and our Outdoor School, as well as a commitment to extracurricular athletics, choir and student leadership, there is something for everyone.
In this important, play-based early childhood learning environment, you will encourage adult and child participation in a variety of developmentally appropriate activities including stories, music and art, providing support for family literacy, and helping to connect families with community resources. One of the goals of this program is to model for parents and caregivers a variety of strategies and learning environments designed to enhance optimal early childhood development.
Your days will be busy and rewarding as you supervise the activities of pre-school aged students, working with parents and caregivers to maintain good order and safety in the classroom and on school grounds.
Equipped with a Early Childhood Education (ECE) certificate with a current licence to practice and a Food Safe certificate, you are knowledgeable in best practices related to parenting and the wide variety of community-based resources available to families. In addition to the ability to maintain program records (including those of a confidential nature), you are able to plan and implement a play-based education program for pre-school aged children.
Ideally, you have also supplemented your ECE certificate with Infant/Toddler certification, basic First Aid and at least one year of experience working with young children, from infant to pre-school, in a registered or accredited child care centre. Successful applicants will have the opportunity to be called out up to 4.1 hour per day and 20.5 hours a week.
