We believe in hands-on learning in all areas of curriculum. Children learn more from interacting with materials and the world around them than from adults trying to explain concepts to them. Play is life for young children. Play enables children to learn through curiosity, invention, and persistence. Children's attention span is surprisingly long when they are interested in what they are working on. Play allows children to master basic skills without pressure. Play encourages problem solving. Our role is to set up an environment rich with materials that offer children the ability to play and learn. By interspersing adult directed activities with child initiated play we insure the development of the whole child. To this end, our teachers must be energetic, strong, happy role models.
We are an established, developmental preschool looking for part time and full-time teachers to join our professional, fun-loving team. Teachers participate in creating curriculum based on the needs of their individual classrooms. Our culturally diverse school is a wonderful place to build relationships with children and their parents. Convenient to freeways, nestled next to a lovely park with walking trails.
We have adopted the RIE.method with our infants. Our babies are on the floor exploring their environment and are never put in play pens, swings or walkers. Our infants are each on their own schedule. Our day reflects the fact that children need consistency and thrive on routines, but we also provide an endless assortment of activities that engage their interest and stimulate their minds, our children can always find laps for sitting and hugs. The infant teacher is a full time position.Our youngest classrooms (ages 2 to 24 months) offers an age-appropriate environment, that encourages children to learn, play and explore. For little ones this means lots of large motor activities . . . balancing, climbing, jumping, and crawling, combined with a emergent curriculum that includes books, manipulatives, pictures, songs, stories and caring adults who foster healthy social, cognitive and physical development. It means an open ended curriculum. We have adopted the RIE.method with our infants. Our babies are on the floor exploring their environment and are never put in play pens, swings or walkers.
