The Burlington Children’s Space, housed in the McClure Multi-Generational Center, is an economically and culturally diverse NAEYC accredited program offering early care and education for children from 6 weeks to 5 years old. BCS partners with Early Head Start and the HowardCenter to provide a range of supports to families and a high level of training for staff. Additional dynamic collaborations support curriculum and inspire new ways to be a part of the community.   BCS has a 35 year history as an innovative and active member of the community,  participating in many initiatives to improve the quality of life in Burlington and create a sustainable early childhood system that works for children,  parents and staff.   

Programming is based on influences from Reggio Emilia,  Italy,  the interests and curiosities of the children,  and the unique culture and resources of our local community.  The Burlington Children's Space is dedicated to serving all populations and tuition is based on a sliding scale.  Additionally,  BCS has a strong commitment to  food justice,  offering a highly regarded meals program and participating in innovative projects to ensure families have access to healthy food at home and school.  

BCS is offering a paid intern to assist the Director with special projects and some tasks related to daily operations.  These include:  

  • Collaborating with the Food Services Manager to ensure families can access local resources such as Everyone Eats,  Burlington School Food meal kits,  and grant funded CSA shares with local farms.  
  • Assisting a group of teachers who are documenting a school wide project on civic engagement for students and families.   
  • Publicizing events and sharing resources using the school’s social media platform. 
  • Collecting and compiling data  to be used for grant writing and reporting as well as advocacy efforts,  including  feedback from program participants. 

Candidates should have good communication skills,  proficiency with computers and social media,  and a passion for community engagement.  Individuals with a background in food systems,  social work, or community development are encouraged to apply.  Hours will be based on the candidate’s availability,  but are most likely M-Th between 8:00 and 4:00.  Some work may be done remotely,  but the majority would be onsite,  with a designated office space not shared with other staff.   

 The Burlington Children's Space is an equal opportunity employer and affords equal opportunity and equal treatment to all persons in all employment matters without regard to race, color, religion, gender, national origin, age, military status, sexual orientation, pregnancy, ancestry, disability, or any other protected category.
