- Experience with Children
Since Boston is announcing prolonged school closure upon the outbreak of COVID-19, and as most childcare facilities follow suit, healthcare workers, first responders, and other emergency personnel have been left with no obvious solutions for childcare. The bottom line is that the continued functioning of the essential services of the United States demands a solution for the identified and urgent need for qualified and reliable childcare options.
We want our essential workers to execute their services in the exceptional ways that they do and will do, we must offer them the full knowledge that their children are in the care of loving and supportive adults able to meet their physical and developmental needs, and to provide them with the stability, calm, and serenity that it is the obligations of all adults to offer children in times of crisis.
Guidepost Montessori is stepping up with options during this time, and looking for passionate educators ready to support children's development during these uncertain times. We are activating our network of parents, teachers and contacts to create in-home care locations and pop-up locations near essential workers.
We're looking for an enthusiastic, adaptable Emergency Childcare Workers who have a passion for working with children.
This position is a temporary role for the duration of the COVID-19 response. You would provide care for a small group of children while diligently following safety and sanitation requirements and recommendations by the CDC. The services would be at our existing Guidepost Montessori schools, in-home care locations, or at pop-up locations to provide emergency services.
This role is a great opportunity to support the essential workers that support the health, safety and welfare of the public. While most positions will end when childcare and schools are able to re-open, Guidepost is a growing network of schools that is willing to sponsor Montessori training for exceptional staff.
