The Intake Worker position kept me constantly busy and I enjoyed that aspect. I enjoyed daily enrolling new families into the Head Start Program.
Pros: intake position kept me constantly busy.
Cons: lack of consistency between centers often repeative work when it was not necessary.
Daily interview families to enroll into Head Start. Constant contact with public and staff. Maintain full classroom enrollment, carry out administrative support duties, including answering phones, filing, copying, faxing, emailing, etc. Daily I had to maintain organize case files on all families. Make sure all necessary documentation was entered into – more... database. Demonstrate accuracy and thoroughness on a daily basis. Have the ability to read and interpret documents. At the center I worked our Social Service staff worked very well together and often would offer help or assistance when needed. The most enjoyable part of the job was working in a pre-school environment and the children. – less
