Melrose Preschool is a Reggio Emilia inspired early childhood facility. We believe in play-based environments, no flash cards or worksheets; and children are capable of expanding their knowledge through their own discovery. We have a fun work environment that incorporates mindfulness and the skills of Conscious Discipline.
We are a non-traditional play based preschool with a fun work environment. Our teacher assistant will help the teacher with daily activities, help keep the classroom clean and safe, and play with some fun little toddlers.
We need fun loving Lead Teachers who thrive planning curriculum based on the children’s interests. Melrose teachers create wonderful engaging activities and projects for the children to work on daily. We need people who are willing to help children think outside of the box, while also preparing them for the real world. Melrose is a private school with high expectations for our staff to enhance the learning of little minds. We teach through hands on learning and not worksheets or flash cards. Children help create the Reggio Emilia based curriculum and learn daily life skills on a regularly.

DCF 45 hours are required, or in the process of attaining them. We have a very supportive school family that believes in our vision and what we do.
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. ;)
