Job Description

Assistant Teacher

Who are we?

Our Co-op was organized in 1972 as an alternative to the established for-profit early childcare and preschool programs available at the time. We started as a group of parents who understood that young children learn naturally in an environment offering a choice of activities created with children’s needs in mind. We offer a high quality independent program that includes free play, games, self-help, social skills, creative expression, and field trips.

Cooperative Children's Center Mission

To provide a safe and creative environment that fosters our children’s social, emotional, cognitive, and physical growth, and instills in our children a respect for self, respect for others, and a joy for learning.

Teaching Position Overview

  • Parent-Teacher-Child Community: We support teachers and families working closely in partnership to ensure continuity between home and school, and to offer opportunities for the enhancement of parenting skills.
  • Anti-Bias: We value and nurture families with diverse lifestyles, cultures, worldviews and socio-economic status. We acknowledge and celebrate our differences and encourage our children and their families to recognize and actively challenge bias.
  • Positive Guidance: We set the stage for positive, inspiring interaction with others through a respect for self and others, characterized by warmth, personal respect, individuality, positive support, and responsiveness.
