The WJCS ParentChild+ Program is currently recruiting part-time staff to work in their home visiting program. Early Learning Specialists are needed to serve eligible families in White Plains, Port Chester, New Rochelle, Greenburgh, Mamaroneck, Mount Vernon and Tarrytown/Sleepy Hollow. The ELS is trained to support parents as their children’s first teachers and promote school readiness for their toddler aged children. In the comfort of the family’s home and on Zoom, parent, child and Early Learning Specialist participate in fun and stimulating activities using specially selected books and toys in twice weekly half hour home and/or remote visits.
This meaningful and exciting work requires a minimum commitment of 9 hours per week. Early Learning Specialists need no special educational background but must have a personality suited to home visiting and enjoy working with parents and toddler-aged children.
ParentChild+ runs from October 2021 to May 2022 following the school calendar. Training will be held the first week in October for successful candidates both in our WJCS Hartsdale office and over Zoom. Although Early Learning Specialist hours are flexible, attendance is required at weekly staff/training meetings held on Wednesday mornings throughout the school year. Early Learning Specialists receive compensation for their work.
