May become a scheduled position of up to 5 mornings and/or 2 afternoons a week.
Little Mountain Parent Participating Preschool and Open Sesame Headstart Preschool are jointly looking for supply/part-time RECE. Both programs operate out of the same room but on different days, having a different focus and separate boards. Also note that both programs are currently looking at the feasibility of hiring a second staff as the new CCEYA requirements affect volunteer recruitment. Both programs are play-based with Open Sesame having a skill development component based on the individual children’s needs
- The Supply/Part time RECE would be responsible for working the days when the current RECE is sick or needs to attend to other matters.
- The Supply/Part time RECE will be able to present and carry out a program that is stimulating and educational and one that meets the needs of the children present.
-The RECE will work with volunteers – high school and university students as well as adults.
- The RECE will work closely with parents and outside agencies that assist in the programs.
Open Sesame Headstart Preschool operates from Monday to Wednesday from 9 AM to 11:30AM. Staff hours are usually 8:30 AM to 12PM. This program is a free program offered to families who have preschool children with special needs or have needs within their family. A parent or caregiver must attend a parent group on Monday mornings which is run by our parent group facilitator. The special needs the children have had in the past include – ESL, Speech and Communication delay’s or disorders, Autism, Aspergers, cognitive delay’s, or behavioural disorders. Currently there is one RECE and two volunteers to a class of up to 12 children ages 2 ½ to 5 years. Some children do their JK year with this program. Open Sesame works closely with therapists and consultants from Kids Ability, KW Habilitation Preschool Services and other agencies.
Little Mountain Parent Participating Preschool operates from Thursday and Friday from 9 AM to 11:30 PM. Staff hours are usually 8:30 AM to 12 PM. In January we are looking at offering an extended program to 1 pm and/or an afternoon program on Monday – Wednesday. We have space for 16 children ages 2 1/2 to 5 years. We are a co-operative program with parents participating in the classroom in place of a second paid staff. Some children attend both morning preschools and/or do their JK year with the preschool. Little Mountain also works closely with therapists and consultants from Kids Ability, KW Habilitation Preschool Services and other agencies.
