Day Care Staff
In Alberta, the highest possible child care certificate is referred to as a Child Development Supervisor (formerly known as a Level 3 staff). Our Society tries to ensure that all full time, permanent staff have their Child Development Supervisor designation, because trained and experienced staff are a key element of a high quality program. All staff also hold a current First Aid certificate and undergo a police security check with a vulnerable sector check.
Qualified staff use specialized skills to meet the needs of the group as a whole, yet maintain a focus on the needs of the individual child. They act as a valuable resource to parents as they can respond knowledgeably to questions pertaining to the child's development.
Staff members understand the importance of the family unit and take family needs into consideration when implementing the program. Our early childhood team supports, guides, and facilitates development and learning for the child through the daily play and routines of the day care centre.

Out of School Care Staff
Out-of-school care staff understand the developmental and emotional needs of school-aged children. We strive to create a supportive environment; an atmosphere of caring and trust so that children can talk to us about their problems and concerns.
We provide a link between you and your child and between your child and school. We encourage children to take responsibility for their actions and to make responsible choices.
All child care staff have child development certification and first-aid. As well, staff are required to undergo a police security check - another insurance we feel is necessary when caring for your children.
