Essential Requirements for Field Placement
Police Reference Check Required.
Field Placement is physically demanding. It involves the following tasks:
• carrying and lifting children and objects
• responding quickly to emergency situations which may involve assisting with first aid and/or CPR and Epipen
• physically intervening when children are aggressive with materials or other children
• monitor the children’s safety, nutrition, health and general wellness.
Students in Kingston must obtain the CPIC from the Kingston Police Dept.
While every effort is being made to accommodate individual student’s learning needs, the field placements require more flexibility on the students’ part as we are invited guests of the agencies. The needs of the children and centre are the first priority. There are five (5) placements in the ECE program and these are to be completed in five (5) different childcare facilities.
Conditions of Enrollment In Field Placement:
Valid certification of Level C First Aid and Basic Rescuer CPR at the student’s expense. A clear police reference check for students. Up-to-date record of immunization.
