St. Peter Catholic Church

The nursery aide will work under the direction of the Pastor and the Director of Religious Education. As a nursery aide you will help children and families during and between the Masses on Sunday mornings. Our goal at St. Peter Church is to nurture the child’s relationship with God, and to help children come to know their faith so that they can more easily transition into attending Mass when their parents choose. The ideal nursery aide has already been exposed to the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd, but if not, is willing to attend training. Any candidate must be able to adopt a Montessori framework for the learning environment and interactions with children.

Estimated hours per week: 8:15 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on Sundays (Some additional feast days and holy days as needed.)

Hourly wage: $18

Job duties may include (but not limited to):

  • Provide a safe and loving environment for the children in their care.
  • Engage children in age-appropriate activities such as Montessori infant/toddler toys, practical life, prayer, singing, and faith-based materials.
  • Change diapers and assist with potty training as needed.
  • Assist with the toddlers’ communal meal (snacks).
  • Calm and soothe children when they are distressed.
  • Ensure play, food and changing areas are kept clean.
