Being a supply staff has more pros than it has cons. You get various experience working in several different sites and you're not confined to just one location. You get to meet wonderful staff and amazing kids each time. You basically set your own schedule and can work between 0-44 hours which is amazing especially if you have school or another full time job. The interview is difficult but if you get an interview GO and be your best self!

The Millidgeville community centre was the worst place I ever worked. The supervisors were horrible and did not care about staff. She yelled at staff in front of other staff and the children. Working there gave me workplace anxiety that I had to go to therapy for. They appear like they are so inclusive, but that is not the case. My job was threatened many times and when I took my issues to HR nothing was done. I do not recommend working for the YMCA!!
help children with their day to day routines. play and learn experience. assist ECE staff with their routine and help wth smooth transitions. Help children find their interests and hobbies by giving them activities which could help them academically.
Very underpaid, but an awesome way to help the community. It is a wonderful company for the community. It offers a variety of things for children and adults. The staff are incredibly hard workers and friendly.
Incredibly supportive, personable and professional management. Consistent, well organized, fun and rewarding. Benefits available and family memberships for employees almost free. Fast paced and high energy required. Being organized, creative, and flexible for day to day changes will assist in individuals success.
Almost free family memberships, many opportunities for helpful training, benefits, EAP access and other personal services available, room for growth if motivated
I have worked for the YMCA as a student volunteer during my placement and enjoyed it so much that after graduation I applied to the before and after school program as my first ECE job. I have made many friends, learned so many new skills and have been fortunate enough to work with the greatest children that I will cherish always.
Being able to be creative and inspire young children and see them develop
Not exactly a con, however, you need to be comfortable with putting in the effort and sometimes bring work home with you.
