CuRRENT NEEDS
  • Lunchtime Assistant

    Lunchtime at FernLeaf is an important part of our students’ school experience. Not only are they fueling their brains and bodies with important nutrients to help them learn and grow, but it is also a time for them to develop critical social skills as they navigate interpersonal challenges and build relationships with peers. It is of course also just a break from the academic rigors of the school day. FernLeaf’s Lunchtime Assistants provide direct supervision during lunch time but are also there to help students navigate social dynamics, digest the happenings of their day, and to make the most of this important unstructured time. Candidates should have a demonstrated commitment to and ability to build relationships with children. 11:30 AM - 1:30 PM Monday through Thursday.
