The Boston University Children's Center is seeking a qualified and experienced lead teacher to join its collaborative teaching team. The BU Children's Center currently provides education and care to children ages two through five and will be expanding this summer to provide infant and young toddler care in a newly renovated Center. The Center serves families who work, teach, or go to school at Boston University. Lead teachers at the Children's Center work collaboratively to create a play-based, child-directed environment, in which children can feel welcomed and supported. The Center recognizes a child's need to learn to respect themselves and to gain the respect of others. This is an ongoing process involving all aspects of a child's being. Children at the Center are not separated into groups by age. They progress individually, regardless of age, as they do within a family and a neighborhood, where younger and older children learn much from one another. Together, they learn compassion and responsibility in a warm friendly atmosphere that builds trust. Children work and play at their own pace on projects that appeal to their individual interests. Various activities focused on different stages of development are provided for the children to explore and experience.
Lead Teachers at the Center plan and implement curriculum, interact with parents daily, document and assess learning, and supervise college-aged Assistant Teachers. We are looking for teachers who are interested in working as a part of a collaborative teaching team. They will need to be familiar with planning and implementing engaging and dynamic curriculum that is based on developmentally appropriate practice. They will exhibit strong organizational, leadership, and decision-making skills alongside a willingness to collaborate and be flexible. Candidates need to be familiar with NAEYC standards and EEC regulations.
Bachelor's degree with one to three years of experience required; Master's degree preferred.
