Employment Offerings

At Just For Kids we treat everyone with kindness and respect as we work, play, and learn together.  Our mission is to offer safe, affordable, year round on-site care for children ages 5-12 in the Boise School District….something we have done for over thirty years.  When students are in our care, activities and relationships occur in a healthy, positive and relaxed environment in which well-qualified staff provide personal attention and guidance to each child.

All Just For Kids staff members are Boise School District employees and licensed childcare providers through the City of Boise. 

A Just For Kids team member can expect a schedule that is easy to fit around another commitment (i.e. school or another job).  We have thirteen locations across the District and offer shifts before school (7am – 9:15am), after school (3pm – 6pm), or before and after school.
