They are the people whom you will interact with most; and most importantly the staff will be your child’s acting role model & teacher. We pride ourselves in hiring exceptional staff and keeping them.
When hiring, we ensure that successful candidates have a solid educational background, hands on experience in the field and that they are passionate about working with children.
Quality Foundations Childcare exceeds the Ministry requirements for Early Childhood Educators in each class. We also work to build a multi-disciplinary team within the centre. A successful center has a team composed of staff with varied but complimentary experience, qualifications and skills that contribute to the successful implemention of our philosophies. This truly creates a positive, child focused environment.
When you meet our staff you can be confident that our staff have completed their Early Childhood Educators Diploma & are registered with the College of Early Childhood Educators.
Further, each of our staff must provide a “Vulnerable sector Check” from a local Police Station and have a valid first aid, CPR certificate. Also, due to the new Health Guidelines; one staff must be onsite who has a “Food Handlers Certificate”, we work to exceed guidelines and require all our staff to get certified.
