Step By Step Teacher Appreciation Week - February 17th to 21st
There are several activities going on this week coinciding with Teacher Appreciation Week at Step By Step which we're celebrating from February 17-21st. You may have noticed the Brown Bag Project displayed at reception. Parents, children, and staff are encouraged to post short messages that radiate positivity, kindness, love and appreciation towards the children, parents and/or staff. The idea is that when you read the anonymous notes you will feel positive, appreciated and maybe even happy at what those around you have written.
Summer Students employment program 2014
Step By Step is now inviting applications for summer student employment through the First Nations and Inuit Health Careers Program. The purpose of the program is to provide work-related experience to aboriginal students pursuing full-time studies at a federally recognized post-secondary institution. Master's or doctoral students are not eligible.
To be eligible to apply, the student must be registered full-time at a University or College and must be planning to return to school in the fall. The student must have the intention to complete their studies and receive a diploma which qualifies them for employment in health care or social services professions such as: nursing, psychology, optometry, pharmacy, social work, etc.
Priority will be granted to eligible students who have never applied to the Program. The work term will be a maximum of 16 weeks (from May to August). The salary of the student is based on a salary scale that reflects years of schooling completed.
The positions available at Step By Step are Teacher Assistants and efforts are made to accommodate the particular interests of the students involved.
If you are interested, submit your resume, cover letter and 2 professional references to Marie Lahache Horne, Human Resources Coordinator by March 14, 2014.

SBS a winner in FNQLHSSC Photo contest!
In December, Step By Step entered a photo contest held by the First Nations of Quebec and Labrador Health and Social Services Commission (FNQLHSSC) to celebrate Universal Children’s Day.
Universal Children’s Day is held to recognize the adoption on November 20, 1989, of the Convention on the Rights of the Child. This Convention is one of the international legal instruments that guarantee and protect human rights. Its purpose is to protect the rights of all the children of the world.
The article highlighted by the contest was Article 31 - "I have the right to play!" (1. States Parties recognize the right of the child to rest and leisure, to engage in play and recreational activities appropriate to the age of the child and to participate freely in cultural life and the arts.)
