The Children’s Museum of Cleveland seeks an Education Coordinator.
As a leader in imaginative and creative play, The Children’s Museum of Cleveland (CMC) gives children a place and the tools to write their own script and discover their own adventures through our interactive exhibits and programs. We offer an open-ended learning environment giving children the opportunity to imagine, experiment, problem-solve and communicate – building skills for a 21st-century learner. We are an advocate for self-directed play as one of the best ways for a young child to learn. We are a museum for all children – of all abilities, backgrounds, and ages. In our beautiful, historic new home, we respect not only childhood but also the parent and caregiver as the child’s first teacher. As a vital community resource, we provide experiences that can bridge a child’s learning between the Museum, home, and school.
This role is primarily responsible for facilitating experiences with group visits including tasks such as coordinating and executing the Museum’s large group programs, and assisting with the scheduling and execution of museum outreach programs. The Education Coordinator plays and interacts with visitors, and works alongside Visitor Services and Education staff to create a rich experience for visitors. The Education Coordinator will also assist with training staff in family engagement, and help design and lead both in-house and off-site programming that aligns with academic content standards and with appropriate usage of Museum spaces.
