We are a social-constructivist preschool in the center of Hollywood; we are just south of Sunset Boulevard. We are seeking several early childhood teachers to work with toddler, preschool, and pre-K ages, with different levels of administrative responsibility. Ideal qualifications include a BA in ECE, though undergraduate training can be in any related field as long as you have completed the required 12 ECE units. We prefer candidates with some teaching experience but have trained very recent ECE graduates with the right instincts for the job. Most important is having a positive attitude, a willingness to grow and learn with us, and a desire to become a partner in our learning community. Our teachers work with compassion, attention to detail, and openness to collaboration, as well as an appreciation of the process of creative problem solving. It would be helpful to have a working knowledge of theories of child development, ideally constructivist theories (such as Vygotsky, Piaget, Bruner), as well as different ways of supporting social and emotional development.
Must be physically fit with a recent health screening, also a TB test and Live Scan background check prior to starting. Our children often work in small groups where they explore ideas, formulate theories, and examine options with the help of teachers. Student interests are formulated with help and under the watchful eye and sensitive hearing of our teachers. Small groups provide the opportunity for high-level meta-cognitive ways of experiencing to come into play, as well as making for memorable shared experiences and the formation of lasting friendships.
Please include a cover letter describing your suitability for the job as well as several personal or professional references.
