WORK STUDY SPRING/SUMMER 2023: Daycare Program Reviewer

  • Location: Cape Breton University
  • Deadline: June 20, 2023 at 11:59 pm

Early Childhood Education Centre

Daycare Program Reviewer


The Program Reviewer will execute and deliver on a full report with various future options made available to the Director, Student Affairs. This report will be critical in formulating the go-forward plan for Daycare operations at CBU.

CBU has operated an Early Childhood Education Centre (“Daycare”) on the campus of the University since 1998. There has been a sole operator of the service at the campus since that time.

There are presently several factors influencing the need for this review including:

  • Introduction of Nova Scotia’s $10/day early childhood fee for families
  • Changing student demographic at CBU with more students in need of Daycare services
  • Opportunities with new campus infrastructure


Some, not all, duties will include:

  • Interviews with key stakeholders (ECE Advisory Board members; Staff of Daycare; Parents; other ECE Centre’s in area; other University Daycare’s in NS; Students on waitlist)
  • Review of provincial information relating to $10/day fee
  • Literature review on best practices and innovative daycare operations in Canada
  • Site visits to other ECE Centre’s
  • Provide options for new space considerations:
    • Age bracket change
    • Site locations

The Program Reviewer will report to the Director, Student Affairs on progress on a weekly basis. Given current on-campus space restrictions, the candidate may be provided the flexibility to complete most tasks remotely and will be introduced to those at CBU who may be able to provide knowledge into the project development.
