Trained and experienced
New Steps is staffed only by caring professionals. Our highly trained teachers are all graduates of recognized Early Childhood Education programs. All our program teachers (RECE’s) must be current registered members of the College of Early Childhood Education. To be considered as a Program Teacher within a licensed Childcare Centre this registered designation is compulsory.
Our Teaching Staff:
Teachers Assistants, and RECE’s are committed to continually upgrading their education and teaching methods. We are committed to providing educational opportunities and financial support to our staff as they endeavour to improve and upgrade their skills.
Raising the Bar
New Steps Childcare has voluntarily participated in the “Raising the Bar” program. This comprehensive program is a Child Development Resource Connection Peel endeavour. It encompasses every aspect of Early Childhood Education including knowledge and maintenance of current policies and procedures. It has been introduced to enhance the quality of care within the early learning childcare field. A certificate of completion is awarded when compliance with requirements have been met.
Just another step we have taken to ensure excellence : keeping all our staff current with new Day Nurseries Act changes, and maintaining our high standard of Childcare.
We have completed the “Gold Maintenance Level” : March 2015.
We are innovative in our teaching and throughout the school year we partner with Post Secondary institutions to help provide monitored and mentored hands-on training experience for up and coming Early Childhood Educators.
