Tuesday, January 24, 2023

The YMCA of Strafford County is seeking energetic, creative and nurturing Float Teachers to support our Early Learning classrooms and Before/Afterschool elementary-aged programs. We are growing and thriving and seeking a few more dedicated educators to round out our incredible team!

We have 3 – 4 float positions available with both part-time and full-time hours available.

Our Early Learning Center in Rochester, NH serves ages 6weeks through 5years and operates Monday – Friday 7:00a – 6:00p. Our Before/Afterschool programs operate out of elementary schools in Dover and Farmington and operates Monday – Friday 7:00 – 8:30a and 2:30 – 6:00p. A consistent schedule would be determined based upon candidate availability and program needs.

This is a wonderful opportunity for educators who might be looking to sample different age groups, for those who can never sit still and enjoy having each day be a different story, or for those candidates looking to support the youth in our communities but broaden their impact outside of just one classroom unit.

Join us at the Y and be a part of something bigger by helping to lift others up!
