New Year, New Job! Join our J Staff team and wake up every morning ready to make a difference.
Are you ready to make the best decision of your life?
The Schwartz/Reisman Centre (SRC) is a vibrant and welcoming hub that connects people to the Jewish community and inspires meaningful and healthy lifestyles. As primary destinations of Jewish engagement, the JCCs strengthen individuals and families through their dynamic program offerings. We are looking to add caring, committed, and creative Early Childhood Assistants to our ECE Centre team (Daycare, Preschool and Before/Afterschool):
What’s in it for you?
While we offer competitive ECE Centre compensation rates and benefits, it’s so much more than just a pay cheque. Be inspired every day as you walk into bright, sun-filled, well-fitted classrooms. Grow as a professional through our staff development program with mentorship and coaching. Shape the lives of children by teaching through the philosophies of ELECT, How Children Learn and JCC Sheva (exclusive to the JCC Association!). Surround yourself with supportive, enthusiastic, and experienced colleagues that make coming to work rewarding and fun. Embrace your inner child while participating with the children in sports, art, music, drama and swimming lead by enriched specialist instructors. We also have very generous staff perks and program discounts - what better way to start the new year than with a free gym membership?
Responsibilities and Duties
What are we looking for?

Demonstrating strong skills in program planning, curriculum implementation and documentation skills and excellent command of the English language will help you excel. Although not essential, Hebrew proficiency would be an asset. You understand the importance of relationship building with parents, colleagues and children - this is your home away from home, after all! You have a positive “can-do" approach, solutions-based problem solving skills and the ability to multi-task.
