All staff at Childsplace Learning Centre Ltd. are hired with respect to their Early Childhood Education, and their experience. An important factor of their personality is the ability to interact well with parents, other staff and the children. Flexibility is important in teaching young children, and resilience is required! It is necessary for all staff to respect and relate well to the children, and maintain a positive atmosphere and attitude. When hiring new staff, all of these factors are considered, and our dedication is to hire the best candidates to fill these requirements. All staff holds valid First Aid and CPR Certification, and all are subject to a Calgary Police Services Security Clearance.
We are all looking forward to a year full of learning, growth and development.
