Elan Preschool is hiring a full time teacher for ages 3-5. Every aspect of the Elan Preschool program is designed to help each child reach towards his/her true potential. We have consistently found that children are far brighter and capable than they are allowed to be. Every child is waiting to be discovered then allowed to learn at a speed matched to that particular child. An Individual program is therefore an ideal that allows each child to flourish, rather than just a few.
We have a Pre-K Teacher position open. It is a full-time position (8:30 A.M - 5:00 P.M) position serving children ages 3 - 5 years old. We have well-equipped classrooms and an outside environment which includes a large playground with lots of area to run, climb and ride bikes. Elan offers a self-paced program that teaches the children responsibility, teamwork and of course all the basics.
The ideal candidate will take an active role in helping children and enjoy doing so. This position is responsible for the care of the students, managing diaper changing, potty training, sanitizing the classroom, cleaning after meals and activities and coaching the children as they develop self-help skills.
Some responsibilities include, but are not limited to:
Establish and enforce rules of behavior for children in their classrooms
Provide basic needs for children
Provide tools and resources for children to use and explore during learning and play activities
Adapt teaching methods and materials to meet the interests and learning styles of children

If you are experienced in working with a group of children that can run faster than you if the have their new shoes on and you can comfortably be asked "why?" a hundred times in a row without blinking, then this may be the job for you.
