Job Overview

We are looking for an experienced early childhood professional to coordinate and facilitate weekly playgroups using the Kaleidoscope Play and Learn model.

The facilitator plans and sets up activities for the children and their caregivers to play together. The facilitator works to build ongoing connections, relationships, and a circle of mutual support among people who care for children.
