GENERAL DESCRIPTION: Teachers are responsible for the design, planning, and implementation of a quality early childhood education classroom and the implementation of the program’s philosophy and curriculum. The position requires skill and expertise in curriculum planning, staff supervision, child assessments, and the ability to accept and work effectively with children and adults from diverse populations. This position is a role model for developmentally appropriate practices in the classroom and has shared responsibility for classroom setup and classroom management. This position may have direct responsibility for a specific group of children in a shared classroom.
Our primary goal with infants is to offer continuity of care with consistent caregivers that are sensitive to infants’ needs and cues. Infant philosophy is based on respect for each child’s rate of growth and needs. The caregivers are paying close attention to what a baby hears, sees, touches, and feels. Our programs do not use walkers, high chairs, or infant carriers. Babies are held when fed until they are able to sit up on their own.
