Training or experience in Child Care and in Special Needs training is a strong asset. Having access to a vehicle is essential, as our school is located in West Edmonton (Glastonbury).

The necessary hours are from 7:15 AM to 9:00 AM as well as 3:00 PM to 6:00 PM on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays. Position will require full-day care during PD Days and days in lieu (we are closed for all Statuatory Holidays).
