At JMCC, our staff, students and volunteers work together as part of a collaborative team dedicated to providing family-centred, hollistic care to the community, enriching the lives of children and youth with special needs by helping them reach their full potential.
Let our staff tell you why they love working at JMCC:
"I am a Senior Occupational Therapist at the John McGivney Children's Centre. I work in community schools, client homes and within the Centre helping facilitate functional change with my clients and their families in their daily lives. I assist schools and families to plan for and obtain equipment they need to help care safely for their kids. My favourite part of my job is being invited into a family's home to help them problem solve accessibility difficulties. I consider it a privilege when I am in a family home providing my ideas. I am very fortunate to be part of a team of caring therapists and colleagues whom are invested in serving our families."
"I have worked at the John McGivney Children's Centre for almost eight years. I primarily work with clients in our community schools. My job allows me to help children improve independence with their activites of daily living, like writing with a pencil, cutting with scissors and eating lunch at school. The aspects of my job that I love the most are supporting the children and working closely with a positive inter-professional team."
"I have worked at the John McGivney Children's Centre for almost 15 years. My role has evolved over time and I am always challenged to expand my skills. It is a great environment to grow as an employee and as a person as you have the joy of impacting the lives of very special people. We are a family that works together to make a difference every day in our special way!"
"I am very grateful to be part of the John McGivney Children's Centre Team! It is the most welcoming place I have ever worked. I love my role at JMCC because it encompasses some of my favourite things including organization, attention to detail and helping others. The sense of community amongst the staff and with all the families we serve is wonderful. It is very fulfilling to work somewhere that makes a difference in people's lives every single day. There is such a wide diversity of knowledge and expertise here and I find I learn something new from every person I talk to."
"I love working with the great team from the John McGivney Children's Centre and Thames Valley Children's Centre as we work together to support children with a diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder and their families. We are fortunate to work in an environment that recognizes that each of our clients is unique. The best part of my job is working with families to develop strategies to help their child reach their individual treatment goals."
