EXTENDED TIME CARE WORKER

Type: Part-Time Staff
Application Deadline: Open until filled 
Start Date: As soon as possible
Maumee Valley Country Day School seeks a reliable, enthusiastic, and patient Extended Time Care Worker to help facilitate our before and after school programs.

At Maumee Valley Country Day School, children dream, explore, and cultivate their passions and strengths. Our faculty and staff do the same. We are more than a school and more than a group of people — we are a community of lifelong learners who inspire joy. As the only PK-12 independent school in northwest Ohio, we support an accomplished and diverse student body within a progressive academic program. 

A Maumee Valley education is Personal, Experiential, and Global — it is a journey of discovery and of action that defines each child’s learning experience. Through an intentionally crafted curriculum including active lessons as well as serendipitous explorations, a Maumee Valley education launches children toward the investigation of the world and helps them find their place in it. With our students at the center of our decision-making, we aspire to seek understanding, grow in our compassion and empathy, and adapt to the ever-changing world our students will one day lead. Maumee Valley is grounded in our Mission, Vision, Portrait of an MV Educator, Portrait of an MV Graduate, and commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion.

We believe in collaboration, innovation, and the power of community.

Extended Time Care (ETC)
The extended time care program is an extension of Maumee Valley Country Day School’s academic program.  There are three divisions of ETC. Each serves the needs of children grouped into appropriate age levels. The program has organized, supervised activities specific to each area. We also offer outside clubs during the hours of 3:00-6:00 pm. The ETC staff will manage the activities for students not enrolled in clubs. They must know where all of the children are at all times and manage moving students to and from the proper location at the proper time throughout the working hours. All children will be logged in and out of the program on a daily basis. ETC staff interact with students, parents, faculty, and staff and must be able to communicate with our constituencies in an appropriate manner.
