More About the Position:
Many parents and children are much more comfortable getting care and nurturance from family members, friends, and local neighbors than they are sending children into centers and school settings that may not fit with the families’ language, culture, schedule, or health/special needs. Moreover, these familiar adults provide care for community children as a profession, source of income, and service to the families they know and love.
Because home-based child care continues to be the option most parents choose, home-based child care providers need support in school-readiness strategies that they may not be able to readily access. At ParentChild+ we meet families’ caregivers to provide culturally-responsive, linguistically-matched support, in-home with a one-on-one coaching model that engages the caregiver to promote school-readiness skills and create an environment for optimal child development from the start. Parents are able to work, go to school, seek out child care at unusual hours, and take comfort in knowing that the person caring for their child is a familiar, trusted and adult who is being coached in the best practices of early childhood education.
