Parkwood Children’s Centre is a licensed child care centre located within Parkwood Institute and is part of St. Joseph’s Health Care London, London, Ontario. Our organization works in partnership with St. Joseph’s, providing education and care for children of employees as well as families from the community. The Board, Educators, and Support Staff of Parkwood Children’s Centre have been learning and collaborating to ensure the organization operates in a democratic manner and creates diverse and inclusive spaces for learning for the children, their families, the employees, and other community partners.
Who We Are Looking For
We are seeking an Executive Director who will work in collaboration with a volunteer Board of Directors to oversee the operations of a non-profit single site licensed child care centre. The role of the Executive Director at Parkwood is both inward facing to include responsibility for budget and payroll, adherence to Ministry policies, and communication with families as well as public facing to act as a liaison with City committees, the Ministry of Education, grant funders, and serve as an ambassador for the Centre.
The successful candidate will be open-minded, a critical thinker, a leader who who empowers others, and an individual who embraces change. The Executive Director must value democratic practice (i.e. collaboration and inviting all voices into decision-making) to ensure accountability to the Board of Directors, Program Team, Educators, Support Staff, Intern Students, and Volunteers.
