Aerie Early Care & Learning Centre

Start your career with us!

We believe child care should foster the development of the whole child – socially, physically, intellectually, creatively and emotionally and it is with these principles in mind that we designed our inclusive licensed Early Care & Learning Centres.

We offer competitive wages, a fun casual work environment with lots of unique training and opportunities to grow within and across Atira! Our competitive benefits packages include three weeks paid vacation to start, extended health and dental coverage, registered pension plans, our Employee Referral Program, and much more!

We are committed to hiring women who reflect the women who access our services and the communities in which we work. As such, resumes from qualified First Nations, Métis and or Inuit women are encouraged, as are resumes from Black women, women of colour, trans women, women who are disabled and women from other equity-seeking groups. Fluency in a language(s) other than English is an asset.

CURRICULUM

At Atira, we use an emergent curriculum, a play-based model that helps with school readiness. The emergent curriculum allows our educators to plan activities and programs based on the children’s interests and skill sets of the children enrolled at the time. Atira’s Early Childhood Educators take into consideration the environment within the programs and have small learning groups to keep children engaged. It is a collaborative approach between the children who initiate the process and the educators who know what is necessary for children’s education and development. Educators discuss what is observed in the classrooms and come up with plans and ideas around what to implement next. Some interests last one day, some can last months. Atira early year centers include the following learning areas in all lesson plans:

  • Language and Literacy
  • Art
  • Physical, Social and Emotional Development
  • Science
  • Mathematics
  • Social Studies
