ABOUT CHILDREN’S COUNCIL:
For more than 45 years, Children’s Council has been the heart of child care and early education in San Francisco, advancing the belief that high-quality child care can transform lives and communities. Our more than 120 team members help families navigate their child care and preschool options and secure financial assistance to pay for it. We provide home-based child care businesses with the training and resources to succeed. Through a wide range of free programs and workshops, we support parents and caregivers as they build child development skills. As the city’s second-largest nonprofit contractor, with an annual budget of over $100 million, we are a major stakeholder in the child care system. We educate the public and advocate for increased investment in early education at the local and state level. If you are a child care champion, we want you on our team.
The Associate Director of Health and Nutrition works in partnership with early childhood education programs and a range of community stakeholders to design and implement programs and supports that build caregivers’ capacity to provide all children with a healthy start. The Associate Director works with a team to oversee and expand our health and nutrition-related work, including the United States Department of Agriculture Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP), the Healthy Apple Program, and food security interventions designed to improve access to and availability of healthy food and to support child care programs’ efforts to promote health and wellness and establish life‐long healthy habits for children in their care.
Children's Council of SF is committed to building a staff that is rich with cultural, social and experiential diversity. Candidates who want to join us on this journey and who can uniquely contribute to that goal are encouraged to apply.
