At Good Beginnings we believe authentic caring relationships among children, adults, Educators and communities, contribute to the healthy growth and development of children. We believe in a holistic approach when recruiting new members of our Educator, Dietary Planner and Administrative teams. Good Beginnings is a licensed child care organization that is regulated by the Ministry of Education. Individuals who are hired to work for our organization must possess the following: current Standard First Aid Including Infant and Toddler CPR, a satisfactory Police Record Check-including Vulnerable Sector and a completed Health Assessment and Immunization Form.
Educators, as researchers, co-plan with children by involving them in the decision making process to have shared input over the direction of their learning. As co-learners, Educators actively engage in learning with children while supporting them to explore their world with their body, mind and senses. As Educators ask children questions, they learn how to further enhance children’s interests and curiosities by expanding and scaffolding their ideas and creative learning.
Good Beginnings’ Educators are Registered Early Childhood Educators, graduates of the Recreation and Leisure Program, Child & Youth Workers and Educational Support Workers. Good Beginnings also provides career opportunities to students of the above noted programs.
Our Dietary Planners are committed to providing the healthiest and most delicious foods to the children in our care. All Good Beginnings’ Dietary Planners have their Safe Food Handling Certification. Our menus and food premises are reviewed by the Oxford County Board of Health. At Good Beginnings, our Dietary Planners provide the recipe to children’s success!
The Administrative Team works diligently to meet the needs of our families, community partners and the Board of Directors of Good Beginnings. The Administrative Team assists with the daily operations in areas such as finance, human resources and business administration.
Good Beginnings believes in investing in our employees through professional development opportunities and by hosting workshops that are often open to our Community Partners.
