Summerhill Day School is a childcare centre located in Burlington, Ontario at Walkers Line & Dundas. Summerhill is recognized in the community for being a high quality learning centre for young children. We take it very seriously that parents choose Summerhill to provide care for their special little people and it our goal to exceed their expectations! While very proud of our strong reputation, we know it's a direct result of our highly talented staff and we are all about making Summerhill a great place to work!
Currently, we are seeking an experienced Centre Supervisor to join our team and provide leadership for our staff and manage the day to day operations - this is a BIG job and requires a strong work ethic (this isn't your typical 9-5 job!) - you have to demonstrate professionalism at all times (you are a role model for others)...be a strong communicator (to both parents and staff), you can't be afraid to get your hands dirty - you will cover for staff absences, help with serving lunch, clean up paint spills and yep, change diapers too! You also have to be super organized! Ask anyone in this type of role and they will tell you it is BUSY!
In this role, the Centre Supervisor will be specifically responsible for managing staff performance, overseeing lesson plans and observing staff in program and providing direct feedback. As well, the Supervisor will conduct parent tours, manage enrollment and wait lists, create weekly staff schedules, arrange for supply teachers when required, create monthly newsletters, communicate with and resolve any parent concerns, work with the Ministry and Halton Region on meeting their requirements and expectations and work closely with our bookeeper. Also, it is very important that the Supervisor is a good network builder...it is critical that this person be able to build and sustain good trusting relationships within the ECE community!
It is an absolute requirement that this person has at least 5+ years ECE experience, holds an ECE and be registered with the College and has 5+ years of Supervisory experience (these are MUST HAVES!)...ideally, s/he would also hold a University degree, preferably a Bachelor of Education degree. If this sounds like you, please consider applying! If you don’t meet the qualifications, please refer this job to someone in your network that might be a good fit!
Thank you for considering this opportunity to join Summerhill!
