7am-9am, Mon/Tues/Wed including second week of Winter Break and both weeks of Spring Break. (It's possible to get holiday coverage as needed.) Our care kids grades K-5 slowly get dropped off into your care, 9-11 kids total. They hang out with you and play, colour, read, snack and wait until it's time to walk to school. Around 8:15am you get them set with the high-vis vests, shoes, backpacks and walking rope and head off for Margaret Stenersen around 8:20-8:30am (technically only a 5 min walk away but with the kids it take a bit more time). You will have a second staff member with you while walking to help. After drop-off you'd walk back to the studio to drop off the vests, rope, etc. and you are off.


Preschool Hours (M/W 9:15am-11:30am: $20/hr) This position will also include working in our preschool as an ECE Assistant, with our two ECE teachers. Currently the Preschool shift is Mon/Wed 9:15am-11:30am with the possibility of also adding Tues at some point.
