Out of School Care Leaders

Join our Quadra Village Out of School Care Team!

Quadra Village Community Centre is a vibrant organization offering relevant programs in the Hillside-Quadra Neighbourhood. Our core values include care, respect, inclusivity and community. We pride ourselves in making a positive difference in the lives of children, youth, families, adults and the wider community.

We are currently looking for staff who are available for Monday, and Tuesday afternoons, with a combination of some morning, and afternoons for Wednesday – Friday as well as full days (pro-d and school breaks) shifts (part-time, on call) for our Licensed Out of School Care Program at Quadra Village Community Childcare.  The program runs Monday to Friday, September to June, and full days for all School District 61 breaks and closures. Full time or part-time summer employment is also a possibility.

This is an excellent opportunity for a post-secondary student as the hours are flexible and fit easily around most academic schedules. It also could be a great fit for a community member that loves kids and is looking for part-time work. Educational Assistants at George Jay and Quadra School would also be able to make many of our shifts work due to how the role fits around the school day.  These positions provide the opportunity to work with and collaboratively design fun experiences for a diverse group of elementary school aged students.
