A & D Child Care, The Learning Tree, The Meadows | Careers

Are you ready to make a difference in the lives of children and join a winning team? We are always looking to add talented, energetic, positive, honest, and fun people to our team.

If the following statements resonate with you, come see us immediately.

  • You must love to give hugs, hold a crying toddler, get a dental inspection by a two-year-old, have pretend-conversation “on the phone” into a block, and most of all, eat pretend-food like a champ!

  • You must be able to sing “Let it Go”, “Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star”, and any other songs requested by the children. Your tune is not important, your performance is everything!

  • You must be able to see and count a sea of moving heads instantaneously and locate anyone playing hide and seek by themselves (or with an imaginary friend).

  • You must be able to read a story while one child crawls in your lap, another tries to grab the book, and another one is telling you a completely different story.

  • The ability to read in different voices is a major bonus as it will keep them engaged long enough for your co-educator to get diaper changes done!

  • You must be comfortable navigating on the floor, sitting on a chair that is a foot off the ground, crawling through a tunnel to save a scared child, and of course, using tot-sized toys!

Ideally, we are seeking candidates with coursework or degrees in Early Childhood Education or a related field. Child care experience is also a valuable asset. However, we will consider people without formal Child Care Education. While experience is not required either, preference is given to persons with experience in a licensed early childhood centre. Preference is also given to applicants having Early Childhood Education.

We appreciate our staff and know they are a huge part of why families love us. We award the Employee of the Month to those who go above and beyond their daily duties. Celebrations for work anniversaries, birthdays and special holidays as well as referral bonuses to staff are other ways we like to say "Thank you" to our staff!

A & D STAFF Reviews



“My whole life, I’ve been involved with children, babysitting and being super involved with
all the little people I grew up with. That passion sparked my interest in working with
children, and have now worked in the field for 3.5 years. I worked at two previous
daycares before coming to work at A&D where I felt so put down that I wasn’t sure I
wanted to continue working in the field as a career. A&D has been the most welcoming
establishment that I have ever worked in. The open door policy with the owner and...

“A & D Childcare has for many years held a reputation that is second to none. The
waiting list speaks for itself. I worked there for over 5 years and was very proud to do so!

“As a current employee, I would say that this early learning centre exceeded my expectations. I have wanted to work there since the centre opened. Both my professional and personal goals as a child and youth care worker have been met and I continuously have opportunities to create and work on new goals. As a full time student, The Meadows Early Learning and Child Care is flexible to my needs and never makes me feel belittled for having other priorities. The team at the centre never works in isolation. Everyone relies on each other's experiences, skills, questions, and desire to create an enriched learning experience for the children and the staff. I am always received with a smile when I start my day and an expression of gratitude when I leave. My experiences, education, passion, and questions are valued and never dismissed.

The centre is very transparent about what they can offer to the parents and children of various communities. They enjoy showcasing the growth and fun had by every child while maintaining strict AHS guidelines due to Covid.”

“Have been employed with THE MEADOWS AND EARLY LEARNING AND CHILD CARE for two amazing and fruitful years. It has been a privilege to be part of this team and to be given such wonderful opportunities to grow in a caring and supportive environment. In every aspect of my life from being an educator, wife and mom, I can say with all my honesty that my director KARI and Asst. Director CRISTINA and fellow educators have been a constant source of encouragement, motivation and love. THE MEADOWS AND EARLY LEARNING AND CHILDCARE offers training which contribute to my higher learning. I have been able to grow within this centre as well. I love working at THE MEADOWS AND EARLY LEARNING AND CHILDCARE because of the friendly, happy atmosphere! We share ideas and help each other when needed. It’s just great teamwork. “I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND THE MEADOWS

AND EARLY LEARNING AND CHILD CARE BEING A GREAT PLACE TO WORK.” I plan on staying here for a very long time, no doubt about it.”
