Description: Child Care Program Director - We are looking for cause-driven leaders who model values of honesty, respect, responsibility, and caring; who are ready to be invested in and grow, to take a risk and be stretched; and who want a job that is not transactional, but transformational.
As the Program Director, you will provide leadership, direction, and vision to the day-to-day operations of child care sites. You will manage child care programs that serve our community with a variety of programmatic and activity options to explore and develop interests and talents with a focus on safety, health, social growth and academic enhancement so that children have fun, grow and thrive in our care.
If hired for this position you will plan, develop, administer and evaluate off-site before-and-after school child care. You will provide leadership and direction for staff and children, ensure positive communication with parents, children, schools and other staff, practice risk management, and develop positive community relations.
You will be able to promote a positive environment that fosters fun, safety, and our YMCA values which includes implementation of proximity praise, specific action compliments, and our 8 Points of Leadership. You will help in providing balanced recreation, education and character development by designing, implementing, and evaluating enriched activities full of fun and friendship.
As a full time employee, you will receive a medical/dental/vision benefits package, retirement savings plan, Employee Assistance Plan (EAP), life and long term disability benefits, Paid Time Off (PTO), Extended Leave Plan (ELP), and a family membership to the YMCA of Pierce and Kitsap Counties.
