MCRC goes beyond the traditional ‘check in the box’ approach to employee development by
recognizing creativity, innovation and the work contributions of each employee that aligns with MCRC’s
strategic objectives. We have a wide variety of programs and services that allow our staff to explore
various career opportunities within the organization. All employees are provided with a free

children with behaviour difficulties and with children of differing abilities. The successful candidate
should have experience with a variety of teaching techniques including modeling, active listening,
observing, questioning, demonstrating and supporting children. The preferred candidate should
observe children for the purpose of creating learning opportunities that promote development within
social, emotional, cognitive, language, sensory and physical domains.

Every day, you’ll encourage purposeful play and build upon the interests of children by:

  • Working alongside the Before and After School Educators with all children in the classroom.
  • Being culturally sensitive and endeavoring to remove all barriers which prevent acceptance and
    accessibility for children in the classroom
  •  Creating warm, welcoming interactions that protect the health, security and well-being of
    children.
  • Being committed to raising quality care indicators through participating in the Quality First
    model.
  • Supporting inclusion of children with special needs, working collaboratively with their
    parents/caregivers and early childhood specialists
  • Developing and implementing an emergent curriculum applying core concepts of a Reggio
    inspired philosophy.
  •  Creating an atmosphere which builds upon individual learning styles, interests, and celebrates
    the cultural and ethnic diversity of the children and their families

 

MCRC is committed to diversity and accessibility. To this end, MCRC endeavors to reflect the cultures,
languages and abilities of the families we serve, in our programs, services and employment
practices. Please identify if you require any accommodations during the recruitment process in your
