Jasper Out of School Care staff are dedicated to supporting children and aiding them in developing a positive self-esteem and a positive attitude alongside opportunities for social interaction, learning, independence and responsibility.
All staff employed at Wildflowers Childcare are qualified Early Childhood Teachers and, as such, are issued with one of the following certifications by Childcare Staff Qualifications through the Provincial Childcare Licensing Board:
1. Child Development Assistant
2. Child Development Worker
3. Child Development Supervisor
Some newly-hired staff may be granted an exemption until they complete the Child Development Assistant requirement within the first six months of employment. These certifications are based on a combination of experience and training in Early Childhood Education. All full-time staff also have a valid Emergency Childcare First Aid Certificate. All staff, paid or volunteer, are required to have a criminal record check and a Child and Family Services intervention record check before working with the children at the Centre.
Jasper Out of School Care is located in Room 10 at Jasper Elementary School. Our licensed space includes the Gymnasium, library, kitchen and computer lab. We are very fortunate to have access to the school playground and can use it year round. Click here to see a photo of the Out of School Care room.
