Career Opportunities

The Parent-Infant Center is a rewarding place to work. We are a community of teachers, administrative staff, and families working together to create a high quality and loving environment in which our children can grow, play and learn.

We prefer applicants for early learning positions with degrees in early childhood education and who have previous experience working with infants, toddlers, or preschoolers. However, we know wonderful teachers with unrelated degrees, so if you have strong experience working with children, please send us your resume.

A candidate for the After School Center should hold a degree in elementary education or recreation. After-school teaching positions are part-time and applicants must be available at least three days a week.
