Job Description:

John W. Hoffman Early Learning Center is searching for Infant and Toddler Early Educators for the 2018 - 2019 school year. Infant and Toddler/Early Educators will be responsible for maintaining a loving, kind, rigorous, and joyful learning environment for children and families. If you are relentless about seeing students achieve at high levels, this is a chance to work at a network that does whatever it takes to ensure college success for all children.

Background:

New Orleans College Prep’s (NOCP) mission is to prepare each of our students to enter and excel in a rigorous four-year college or university. Over the past 10 years, NOCP has grown from a single school with a single grade of 100 students, to now operate 4 charter schools spanning grades PK-12, serving over 1,500 students on 4 campuses.

In June 2017, NOCP will expand its existing early learning program at John W. Hoffman, to establish a large, world-class early learning center that meets the needs of a growing, socioeconomically diverse population in New Orleans. The early learning center will serve approximately 228 children aged 0-4 and offer an unparalleled array of enriching, experiential learning experiences for children. 50% of the seats will be funded through Head Start, offered only to low income children, and 50% of the seats will be tuition-based, offered on a sliding scale of tuition rates based on family income. A coalition of charter school organizations will contribute to the operating costs of the center, in return for offering preferential access to employees of their schools, which will also support improved staff retention in our K-12 public schools. With this unique model, we will create a preschool that is truly accessible to all families, regardless of income, and expand early childhood capacity in our city.
