The Educators at the North Shore Child Care Centre have all had Early Childhood Education.   Over 3/4 of our staff studied at Capilano University which is renowned, and leader in the industry, for their Early Childhood Care and Education Program.  We are fortunate to have many of our Educators continue their learning in the Early Childhood field by completing their degree in Early Childhood Education at Capilano University.

The Educators at NSCC are invested in the children’s learning and want to ensure the children’s passion, curiosity, and joy towards learning evolves and deepens.  Educators listen, question, and reflect the vast ideas and interests of the children.  They actively respond and support emerging ideas through play-based and child lead activities and experiences indoors and outdoors.

All Educators have had a criminal record check and first aid training prior to working in the classrooms.
