After-Four Staff

OSCA’s After-Four coordinators and counsellors are dedicated to providing a fun and safe after-school environment for every child. Many of our staff have participated in the After-Four program as children, volunteered in the program and are now passionate about their opportunity to give back to the Firehall.

 

Each staff member is required to obtain the following qualifications: valid Standard Level First Aid, Level C CPR, and AED certification; Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act and Integrated Accessibility Standards Regulation training; Worker Health and Safety Training; and a vulnerable sector police records check. OSCA After-Four staff also receive training on a monthly basis in many areas such as dynamic and age-specific programming, health and safety policies, special needs, behaviour management, and much more!
