Early Head Start Family and Infant-Toddler Educator

 

Child and Family Centers of Excellence is looking for YOU if you are committed to helping very young children and their families thrive and succeed. We are a federally funded nonprofit organization based in Waukesha and Washington Counties.

As a part of our Early Head Start team, your responsibilities will include doing weekly in-home visits with a caseload of 12 families and their children 0-3 years of age on a year-round basis. Caseloads may also include pregnant women. Visits are individualized according to each child’s developmental level and the family’s goals. In addition, family events are held twice a month.

Coming from our family-centered, strengths-based approach, your work will include assisting parents in their role as the primary educator of their young child. Together with families you will develop an individualized curriculum for each child based upon ongoing child assessments. You will work with parents to ensure that enrolled children’s health and nutrition needs are met. In addition, you will work to match families with the community resources they seek to enable them to meet their identified family goals.

We require a minimum of a bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood Education, Social Work, or Child and Family Studies, along with experience and knowledge of infant and toddler development. A successful candidate must possess great interpersonal skills and flexibility. A valid Wisconsin driver’s license and reliable transportation are required. Fluency in Spanish is a very valuable asset, but not a requirement. Current opening is in Washington County area.

We offer a full benefits package, including health insurance, child care, wellness dollars, training opportunities, a generous earned leave time package and a very supportive and pleasant work environment within a great team.

We are an organization committed to excellence in service to young children and their families.
