Currently working weekends? Join us and say goodbye to WEEKENDS! Blossom is seeking a part time responsible employees to join our Dietary Team! The ideal candidate will be passionate about working with young children and the nutritional component of child development, as well as know their way around a kitchen. Washing dishes, prep work, delivering food, picking up bus tubs and cleaning/closing down the kitchen comprise the majority of the day. It is our hope to train the person in this position to also sub for the head cook. Supporting the teachers through stepping into the classroom to give short breaks is occasionally expected. The hours can be extended through subbing in the classrooms.
