Whether it’s parents and neighbors banding together as informal groups or pods (KidSmarts@home) or companies deciding to invest in a solution for their employees (KidSmarts@work) a qualified, consistent, professional teacher is the key necessity to making your plan successful. Simply searching the internet and hiring a teacher can seem like the way to go, but there are also risks and other details to consider.
How do you know that this is the right teacher? What about their liability and HR needs? Managing an employee and providing the necessary structure may be more than a group of parents want to take on or may detract from a company’s line of work. Teachers are new to this type of arrangement too and it is important to them that they have stability, support for their own development and consistency. Finding amazing individuals who can manage this type learning arrangement is difficult and ensuring their commitment and growth requires an experienced partner who understands how to identify them and how to meet their needs.KidSmarts IS that partner.We will elevate your informal pod to a Learning Hub. We can help by recruiting the right teacher for your group, managing the logistics of their employment (payroll, taxes, background checks, HR needs) ensuring their commitment for the agreed upon time period and providing professional development and coaching so that the teacher’s needs are met. We take on the responsibility of managing the teacher and the Learning Hub so that you can focus on your children, your lives, your jobs and your needs.
