Assistants should be self starters and able to take on ownership in the classroom. As well as, work with as a team, since he/she will have two lead teacher to help throughout the day. Moving quickly is a big part of the day, since we are always 10 steps ahead of what the children are ready to do.
2+ years Classroom Experience is helpful
DCF 45 hours Childcare Training
CPR/First Aid Certification
Knowledge of Reggio Emilia & Conscious Discipline is a plus - we do train within our staff family
We are a partial day preschool program inspired by the Reggio Emilia Educational Approach. The Emergent Curriculum allows a teacher to listen to children's interests, and then design the activities and provocations that will enhance their learning. Our school is play based to develop skills of self discovery and exploration. Classrooms have a homelike quality and each teacher creates an environment that children can thrive in.... most children don't want to leave when school is over. We like that. ;)
