Co-op / Student Placements

For years we have enjoyed welcoming students on ECE placement as well as highschool students wishing to join us throughout their co-op placement. We offer a variety of workplace skills as well as opportunities to improve and learn about communication, planning, leadership, and working as a community partner.

As with all of our volunteers each student will be involved in an interview and orientation process prior to beginning his or her placement with Ontario Early Years Centre Simcoe North. Students will also be required to provide a current (not older than 6 weeks from commencement of placement) criminal records check including a vulnerable sector screen. Students should be prepared for the reality that the process of obtaining this screen could take up to 12 weeks in some areas and should also be prepared that most police departments charge a fee for this service.
