Work With Us

Blue Heron Montessori- James Bay location ECEA/ECE for September 2022

Are you looking for a centre that truly values you? We strive to create an exceptional work culture of empowered people. We treat our educators with respect and have a deep understanding of the challenges of working in Early Childhood. Come join a community where time off is accepted and encouraged to care for your overall well-being, where we support each other whole heartedly on and off the floor. There is a movement happening in the way ECE/ECEAs should be treated, and we aim to be the lead.

We follow Montessori philosophies and use Montessori materials, but we have an updated approach that is in line with current best practice standards. We incorporate play-based learning experiences into our program to provide a dynamic and exciting environment. We utilize pedagogical narrations on a weekly basis to share the learning with our families. We value active community involvement and invite our educators to contribute their ideas and passions as much as possible. We also recognize our responsibility to honour the Truth and Reconciliation Act and work to incorporate indigenous curriculum into our program.
We are looking for a candidate that will be in line with our values and is passionate about their work with children and families. The right candidate will also be interested in Montessori, and open to learning about the materials and philosophies. Educators are encouraged to plan experiences and create materials for the children to work with. This position will be permanent and full-time, as we are looking for long-term educators who we can welcome into our community.
We receive the Wage Enhancement funding and pay an additional $4 per hour for ECEs. We offer excellent health benefits from the Chamber of Commerce Johnson group package, and we cover 50% of the costs. We offer one hour paid breaks, 10 paid sick days per school year and 4% paid vacation on each paycheck. We also offer an additional 2 weeks paid vacation at Christmas.
