Work hours may vary to meet the needs of the children in our care and to maintain state requirements. You may be asked to work more or fewer hours than originally scheduled. After proper training, you should be able to anticipate classroom needs and follow through without direct supervision or prompting.

It is sometimes necessary for staff to move between classrooms and to work with different age groups, so your classroom assignment may change according to center needs.
