Role Of The Staff

In order for children to become happy, self-confident members of society, they must learn to deal successfully with interpersonal problems. This involves learning self- regulation, self-discipline and inner control as well as positive and constructive ways to problem-solve. As such, it is the role of the staff to support a child’s sense of self-worth while providing opportunities for the child to learn appropriate ways to interact with others. The staff will act as positive role-models, setting clear limits and expectations for the children. They will also provide experiences for the children that are free of bias and stereotypes. The staff will be guided by their knowledge and understanding of child development, as well as their recognition of the individual needs and personality of the child.

Staff members are the people you will see daily, having a direct relationship with you and your child. Each staff member has your child’s best interest at heart. Our ratio of adult to child is within the guidelines of the Child Care and Early Years Act. Learning Together Childcare is staffed by qualified Registered Early Childhood Educators and Early Childhood Assistants.


All educators and supervisors are trained in Standard First Aid and CPR-C, Accessibility for Ontarian’s with Disabilities (AODA), and Health & Safety Awareness. Designated educators are trained in Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System (WHMIS) and hold Food Handling Certification.

All educators, supervisors, volunteers and students require a Police Vulnerable Sector Check (PVSC) prior to interacting with children and every five (5) years thereafter. In addition, Annual Offence Declarations are completed. Individuals (with other agencies) who attend our programs e.g. early interventionists, therapists, yoga or music instructors will provide vulnerable sector screening verification prior to interacting with the children.
