Kati Smallman, Owner and Operator of Wee the West Early Years Centre in Bloomfield, says with the reduction in costs, they will see a growth in demand. They presently have 57 families on the growing waiting list.
“I am not overly concerned about the lack of space at this facility. I know if I were to open a second facility, I would have full support of government, and there would be enough children to fill the seats. My biggest concern is finding staff.”
“This is an excellent field for individuals who love and want to care for children, with much opportunity for lifelong learning and raises in pay,” says Kati.
“New hires can begin at entry level and work and educate themselves up to excellent wages. When hiring, a post-secondary education is an asset, but training can be provided.”

“I presently have 15 full-time staff and I am always looking to add to my casual list,” says Kati. “The one important question I ask applicants is: ‘can you walk the mile with these children?’ These very special little ones require much attention and care!”
