Job Description:

Job Description Full Time Infant Teachers (2 positions available) Our childcare center and preschool is looking for two teachers to join our current infant room staff in creating an enriching and loving environment for our youngest children. We are a true Reggio Emilia inspired school, focusing on the needs of each child and viewing them as truly capable participants in their own learning. We believe in the 100 languages of children-that each child has their own way of learning, playing, and developing. We are looking for loving and nurturing individuals who have a deep interest in enriching the lives of our children. We follow a NJ state aligned curriculum in all our classrooms that teachers must adhere to and implement daily. In addition to our daily curriculum, we work collaboratively on quarterly group projects. These long-term projects are a cornerstone of the Reggio inspired approach and the goal is to engage children in a project they can keep returning to throughout the months as they learn more about the topic at hand.

We are looking for energetic and enthusiastic individuals to engage with children throughout all times of the day.
