Position Description

In this placement you will be immersed in daily practice alongside Early Childhood Educators and experience first-hand methods of guiding young children in an early learning program. The goal of this field experience is to plan and implement fun activities that engage young children in developing fine and gross motor skills. In practice, you’ll find different ways to engage a large group, redirect behaviors, comfort, and support children in their learning about the world around them.

You will also have the opportunity to attend bi-weekly field trips to the Treehouse Forest Classroom and the Clubhouse Farm.

Organization Information

The Clubhouse at Cottonwoods provides a full day early learning program for children ages 2 to 5, and an after-school program for Kindergarten children from Casorso Elementary. We operate Monday to Friday from 7:30am to 5:30pm.

This program is held in Cottonwoods Care Facility, where programming can interact with the residents of Cottonwoods Care Facility, benefiting the children and residents alike.

We visit the Clubhouse Farm or Treehouse Preschool on bi-weekly field trips. The ideal platform for early learning education promotes the emotional, social, intellectual, and physical development of each child. This development is best nurtured through play, music, stories, games, art, and access to nature. Dedicated, caring educators offer a child-centred foundation: through kind example and loving care, we emphasize appropriate behaviour and problem solving skills. Skill advancement and school readiness are achieved through these key concepts used to encourage the growth and development of all our children.
