Under the direction of teaching staff, assists in meeting the developmental needs of children at Dartmouth College Child Care Center. Participates in implementing the program and supervising children’s activities.


Working at the Dartmouth College Childcare Center has several benefits, ranging from the careful design of our facilities to joining a friendly team and exceptional benefits and compensation packages.
