On your work day you will have many responsibilities:

  • Running a station with children
  • Preparing & cleaning-up after snack
  • Helping supervise children on the playground
  • Directing children to an activity or friend
  • Assisting the teacher with children, projects, etc

We welcome parents and grandparents to participate in the classroom on workdays. All adults in the classroom must have a negative TB test, Measles, & Pertussis immunization on file with the preschool.

All our parent workers must be able to understand and communicate in both written and spoken English. In an emergency, working parents assist the teachers in keeping our children safe.  They must be able to read, listen, and follow directions to see our children to safety.
