School Cleaner

Pear Tree School is transforming education so that people will be able to live happy, fulfilling lives and become positive agents of change.

Every member of the Pear Tree plays an important role in that mission.

That’s where you come in. Your vital role ensures that our school continues to look sparklingly clean and helps keep students and staff healthy!

School Cleaner Role

We’re looking for a kind, responsible and hardworking cleaner with a passion for making a positive impact: someone who not only takes pride in their work, but also wants to make a positive difference in the world.

We aren’t looking for someone to work alone. Our school is a busy environment, and you’ll be a visible, integral part of our community. A job well done will result in high esteem and vocal appreciation from our close-knit community. 

During your workday you can expect to:

  • vacuum classrooms and offices
  • sweep corridor areas
  • empty garbage and recycling bins
  • take out garbage and recycling to outside bins
  • clean surfaces
  • clean washrooms
  • sanitize iPad screens (weekly)
  • clean glass on doors
  • monitor cleaning product stock levels and inform directors of supplies needed
  • do weekly deep cleaning (incl. carpet shampoo)

Aside from your qualifications and experience, you’re perfect for this role because you have the following in spades: 

  • Growth Mindset – you’re a lifelong learner, and love trying new things.
  • Consistency – you’re not satisfied with doing something well just once, but strive for consistency with the quality of your work
  • Interpersonal Skills – you’re very good with people, and are as comfortable talking with children as you are with adults
  • Empathy

Also, make sure to check out our Vision & Mission and Points of Culture.

You also “fit” in a school environment. You carry yourself in a warm and professional manner that children find approachable, and parents/staff find trustworthy.
