We are looking to fill one opening for a Closer in our Toddler 1 room. This position assists the assistant teacher with managing the Toddler 1 classroom. The hours are 3:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m., Monday through Friday.
The Closer works closely with the Assistant Teacher to ensure that each child’s developmental needs, as well as the long-range goals of the program, are being met. This includes creating an environment of caring and warmth, arranging and maintaining equipment and the environment, and meeting all program requirements. The Closer may be asked to fill in when the Assistant Teacher is absent. Staff members are expected to support and adhere to the Center’s mission, philosophies, and policies; maintain confidentiality regarding personnel, families, children, and program matters; and meet the New York State Office of Children and Family Services (OCFS) regulations. They are also expected to serve as role models to promote an atmosphere of good will, team spirit, openness, and sharing in all interactions with children, staff, and parents.
Requirements include a high school diploma and two years of experience working with children between the ages of 6 weeks and 12 years. Employment is contingent upon passing a successful background check, three state clearances, and a physical exam. Hourly pay is at minimum wage.
