Our Professional Staff

Staff members at Busy Hands 'n' Minds are our greatest asset. All of our staff members are trained professionals with expertise in caring and educating young children. One of the owners of Busy Hands 'n' Minds Childcare Centre holds a Bachelor of Education Degree and has several years of experience in curriculum planning and teaching a Kindergarten program in the school system. Our Supervisor holds an Early Childhood Education Diploma and many years of classroom experience. Each classroom is supported by at least one teacher who has obtained either a College Diploma or University Degree in Early Childhood Education, is a registered member with the College of Early Childhood Educators and has experience working in a childcare centre environment. Our Assistant Teachers possess a certificate from an accredited College, other post secondary education or have several years of experience working with young children.

During our hiring process, applicants are thoroughly screened based on child caring experience and ability to implement age-appropriate curriculum. Staff members, supply teachers, student teachers and volunteers are required to have an updated Immunization Record and a criminal reference check on file with the Centre. Student teachers work under the direct supervision of qualified staff and receive valuable educational experience while providing additional support in our programs.

Once hired, staff members receive Centre orientation and training to ensure that our policies and procedures are followed and our curriculum priorities are met. Their skills in caring for the children and program delivery are monitored on an on-going basis.

Security

Our Centre has its own security system in place to keep the facility as secure as possible. You will be given the Centre's master code on your child's first day of enrollment. In the event that you forget the code, there is a door bell located outside of the main entrance. To help us maintain an optimum level of security, we ask that you DO NOT provide the access code to those people authorized to pick up your child. This code is changed periodically throughout the year to ensure safety.
