Teacher candidates will be able to engage with children between the ages of 18 months and 5 years old, and have experiences with child growth and development. There are opportunities to program plan and implement activities for children who will be going to kindergarten in the fall. Teacher candidates will be encouraged to provide resources and information for the staff in the childcare program on transition to school, activities to promote kindergarten readiness and anything else they feel would be beneficial.
Every Wednesday from 5:00-7:00 pm we have a family night dinner at the Centre and teacher candidates will be encouraged to set up an information table for parents and family members to share information and resources (i.e. transition into the school system, kindergarten expectations ect) or answer questions they might have. Also, the students can plan and implement activities during the dinner for the older children who are elementary age.
