DESCRIPTION OF WORK
Nido: Coworking & Childcare, a 501c3 nonprofit in the heart of Durham, North Carolina, is dedicated to providing a work-life balance for families of young children. Nido’s vision is a world where parents can be wholly accepted for who they are, where every child receives quality care, and where we build community and create opportunity—together.
We blend coworking and childcare to form a supportive, inclusive space. Our preschool is an intentionally small program serving ages 6 months to 6 years. We maintain optimal teacher:child ratios to ensure a truly personalized program for every child. We offer a half-day program during the school year and summer. Our goal is to ease the family’s transition to childcare by creating an extension of the home environment.

Communicate daily (online and in person) with parents about their children’s school lives, and educate parents in Montessori philosophy.
Maintain ongoing communication with team members, including the Toddler House assistant/co-teacher and other Nido teachers.
Serve as the liaison for the classroom to the Board to ensure that Nido’s policies (including safety, school licensing requirements, and staffing minimums) are adhered to.
