Early Learning and Extended Day

​The Early Learning Team consists of a Certified Teacher and an Early Childhood Educator (ECE).  Both work collaboratively as a team in order to provide the best start for our earliest learners by:

  • planning for and providing education to students in the full-day early learning program;

  • observing, monitoring and assessing the development of the students;

  • communicating with families;

  • maintaining a healthy physical, emotional and social learning environment; and

  • performing all duties assigned to them by the principal with respect to the full-day early learning program.

Both ECEs and Teachers bring individual strengths and perspectives to the classroom, as well as a set of professional competencies, knowledge, skills and abilities. The Teacher-ECE team will work together to:

  • jointly develop and deliver the daily activities in the classroom, including an emphasis on spontaneity to respond to the children’s needs and interests;

  • organize indoor and outdoor learning environments;

  • use a range of pedagogical strategies to challenge and extend children’s learning; and

  • conduct monitoring and formative assessment of children’s learning.

Extended Day Program:

The extended day program is a before and after school program that allows students to remain in one consistent learning environment.

  • Early Childhood Educators will also use their knowledge base and abilities as they implement the integrated extended day.

  • Because Early Childhood Educators will be present during extended day timeframes, they will also have a significant role in liaising with families and other community partners.

  • Discipleship

    We accept the call to be imitators of Christ by embracing the Beatitudes through authentic witness at the school, community, and global levels. Rooted in our commitment to transmit our Faith and Catholic tradition, we are inspired to build communities dedicated to the formation of young people who recognize their gifts and responsibilities to contribute to the transformation of the world into a more just and loving society for all.

  • Scholarship

    We believe that each student, made in the image and likeness of God and being hope for the future, can be engaged in their learning and achieve at high levels with appropriate supports. We are committed to ensuring that the potential of each student is realized through the achievement of ambitious outcomes and improving in their learning to the highest possible level.

  • Stewardship

    We embrace our responsibilities for the prudent and judicious use of the resources we have been allocated. In our context, we are committed to the development and growth of all employees, responsible and accountable practices and our call to care for all of God's creation.
