Our vision at A House on Beekman is to come alongside babies when they are in their mother’s womb and follow them all the way through college and beyond. We started this three years ago with our first class of Mommy and Me. The newborns that started with us then are now turning 3 and we intend to start a Preschool for them in the fall of this year. As a part of this growth, we have two job openings at A House on Beekman. Our current Mommy and Me Director will be pioneering our new Preschool program so we are looking for a new Mommy and Me Director who can build on the strengths that already exist in the program while bringing a fresh vision to take this program to the next level. We are also hiring a Lead Teacher for our Preschool that will also serve as its Assistant Director. See details for both positions below.
