Let's Play! A Place for Families is a 501(c)3 non profit weekly drop-in parent-child program located in Tarrytown, serving families in our diverse community with children from birth to age 5.
Let's Play! meets every Tuesday from 9:30am to 11:30am at the United Methodist Church in Tarrytown. We offer a preschool curriculum that includes free play, circle time, arts & crafts, music, stories, snack, and parent discussion groups. Led in Spanish and English, the parent discussion groups offer parents & caregivers an opportunity to discuss parenting issues in a safe, caring environment.
Recently we have partnered with the Public Schools of the Tarrytowns to present the Tarrytown Sleepy Hollow Basics to our families. The Basics equip families with the building blocks to future academic success that will give all children, regardless of socioeconomic background, an equal playing field when they enter the school system.
Families are charged $15 per week per family to attend. We offer financial aid, and no one is turned away for inability to pay.
The intern would be a key member of the 5 person staff. Duties would include helping to run the morning's schedule (see above), interacting with children and parents/caregivers, assisting with clean up, front desk sign in, and other duties as needed. Bilingual/Spanish preferred but not mandatory. This is an unpaid internship. Interest in a career in education, social work, working with young children and families strongly preferred. Looking for a full year commitment but open to modifications.
