ECE Assistant Preschool Teacher

Facility: Tom Thumb Preschool
City: Vancouver
Type of Child Care Preschool

Tom Thumb is a well established Parent Involvement Preschool with a solid reputation in the Dunbar area. We offer a morning program for 3-4 year olds from M-Th and a 2 year olds and parent/caregiver program on Fridays.

The Parent Involvement Preschool model is a cooperative model in which parents work alongside teachers in the classroom, so teachers can be freed to develop a program of excellent quality and to spend more one on one time with the children. In addition, parents play and important role in administrative tasks, meeting the teachers once a month and providing support to the community through various events including Parent Educational Talks.

At Tom Thumb, we believe that play is really the cornerstone of quality early childhood programs and that it is through play that children learn about themselves and their world.
