Hoffman Early Learning Center is searching for an Early Childhood Paraprofessional for the current School Year. Early Childhood Paraprofessionals work with the lead teacher to maintain a loving, kind, rigorous, and joyful learning environment for children and families.

Background:

New Orleans College Prep’s (NOCP) mission is to prepare students with academic and life skills for success in college, career, and beyond. Over the past ten years, NOCP has grown from a single grade of 100 students, to now operating 3 schools spanning Birth (6 weeks) to 12th grade and serving over 1,400 students.

In June 2017, NOCP expanded its existing early learning program at John W. Hoffman to establish a large, world-class early learning center that meets the needs of a growing, socioeconomically diverse population in New Orleans. Our early learning center serves children aged 0 - 4 and offers an unparalleled array of enriching, experiential learning experiences for children. 50% of the seats are funded through Head Start, offered only to low income children, and 50% of the seats are tuition-based, offered on a sliding scale of tuition rates based on family income. With this unique model, we are creating a preschool that is truly accessible to all families, regardless of income, and expand early childhood capacity in our city.
