Hiring

We are looking for a teacher for our Threes class, as well as our new enrichment class for 2019-2020.

Threes:

Schedule: Part time; days TBD

Daily Routine:  Opening, Activity Centers (free play), Music, Sharing, Hand Wash/Snack, Large Motor, Closing

A little more “worldly-wise”, with greater vocabulary, and sense of self, this class offers fun ways for children to work together in groups through collaborative activities (building, imaginative play, etc.). With a two out of the three days drop-off, it’s an opportunity for children to learn to be even more independent and rely on trusted adults for assistance. Longer circle time, greater emphasis on story-telling, conversations, and following instructions are emphasized. Pre-academic skills, such as counting, spelling, using scissors, among others, are introduced.

The Enrichment Class:

Schedule: Fridays from 12:45-3:45 for existing students ages 3-5. This class is an optional add-on to the existing preschool students.

Daily Routine: The Enrichment Class is led by the teacher and focuses mainly on STEM concepts (science, technology, engineering and math). Students are led to explore their world through play and guided inquiry. During a typical class, children experience gross motor activities, music, stories, experiments, choice time and outdoor time.
