Staff are classified as either a Child Care Assistant (CCA), or an Early Childhood Educator II or III (ECE II or ECE III) by the Early Learning & Child Care Program. CCA’s are required to take a 40-hour course specific to child development within the first year of their employment.
All staff keep current First Aid and Infant/Child CPR certification.
Every employee is expected to participate in 24 hours of professional development on an annual basis. This enables us to continuously assess and improve the quality of care that the O.K. Before & After School Child Care Centres Inc. provides.
All employees complete an investigation authorization form (which includes a Criminal Record Check and Child Abuse Registry) that is submitted to the Early Learning & Child Care Program and to the Winnipeg Police Department.
