5301 8th Avenue Northeast
The University Child Development School Studio Infant/Toddler program, an innovative Reggio inspired program, is seeking an Extended Day Program (EDP) teacher to join our collaborative teaching team as a part-time, hourly employee. This position begins mid-August 2018 or later.
From the youngest age, infants and toddlers tap their natural curiosity and begin to learn through play and investigations. Our program draws from current research that supports the idea that young children need meaningful experiences and relationships to learn and grow. The program is student-centered and designed to celebrate each child as unique. Teachers use observations about children to design curriculum, giving students the assurance to explore, discover, connect and create on their own and in collaboration with others.
Designed to be flexible, our curriculum puts children at the center. Learning emerges from children's theories and ideas as they experiment, investigate, question and explore. The curriculum uses extended blocks of time for discovery, play and group projects that feed and inspire children's curiosity.
Successful candidates are collaborative, flexible and passionate, and have experience working with young children. Main responsibilities include collaborating with classroom teachers to create curriculum and projects based on the interest and developmental needs of students and facilitating the day-to-day operations of the EDP program.
Typical hours: Monday-Friday, 2pm-6pm, with the possibility of full-day substitute teaching as needed. We also provide the option of attending between 1-3 full-day professional development days throughout the year, with individualized professional development provided within typical work hours. This position offers opportunities for growth in to a full-time salaried teaching position.
We are currently scheduling interviews from this position.
