VIEW JOBS 9/8/2019 12:00:00 AM 2019-12-07T00:00 In our early preschool program, active older 2-year-olds participate in engaging experiences and environments that support the development of their brain, body, and social-emotional skills. The program is designed to provide the structure and support children need during this important transition from toddlerhood to preschool. The foundation of our curriculum is Creative Curriculum, a nationally-recognized, state-approved program that supports the development of critical skills. We enhance this curriculum with the latest research into brain-based development, available only at The Sunshine House. A typical day as an explorers teacher includes relationship building exercises, small group learning experiences, story time focusing on literacy skills and character development, plus music and movement and outside time! The ABCs required of explorers teachers (let's face it, it's not for everyone): * Adaptability in a continuously changing, fast-paced environment * Background check (including fingerprints) * CPR and 1st Aid Certifications (or willingness to obtain) * Degree or minimum of coursework in early childhood development * Experience working with children in a state-licensed childcare center or preschool * Fluency with spoken and written English (Spanish fluency a plus) * Great passion for children and early childhood education * Health assessments (including TB test) * Interest and participation in activities like dancing, jumping, running, etc. * Juggling skills (especially if on roller skates while performing karaoke) a plus!
