Hiawatha Academies is a network of college-preparatory schools focused on closing the opportunity gap in Minneapolis. We seek to create a K-12 school experience for scholars that empowers them with knowledge, character, and leadership skills. At Hiawatha Academies, we are committed to making our city and our world a more inclusive, equitable, and just place.
Our equity vision: to honor the humanity of all people, we actively disrupt systemic inequity in pursuit of an equitable world. Hiawatha Academies permanently disrupts educational inequity by ensuring a great school for every child.
Hiawatha Academies seeks a dedicated School-Age Childcare Assistant and teammate to join our team. This is an immediate opening.
In accordance with Minnesota state guidance, Hiawatha Academies will provide childcare for school-age children (ages 5-12, grades K-6) of critical workers in Tier 1 of the state critical workers list. Childcare will be provided at no cost during the typical school hours. Hiawatha Academies’ childcare program will be led by a Childcare Coordinator and will be staffed by current Hiawatha Academies staff members and a team of Childcare Assistants.
Childcare Assistants are responsible for providing direct support to the students, ages 5-12 (grades K-6) in the network’s childcare program. Childcare assistants will ensure students are in a safe and healthy environment, one that follows the network’s COVID-19 guidelines. Childcare assistants will work alongside the childcare program team, and under the guidance of the School-Age Childcare Coordinator.
