Capitol Hill Day School seeks a full-time interim early childhood teacher. The School’s early childhood curriculum is modeled on the Project Approach. Teachers create integrated units of study that draw out children’s natural curiosity and sense of wonder and help them to develop schema and skills to understand their world. Teachers in early childhood classrooms are keen observers of young children and strive to meet children where they are in their development.
This is a co-teaching position, and teachers collaborate in planning and implementing curriculum, and in reflecting on their practice. This is an interim position, opening at the end of November and running through March, resulting from a maternity leave vacancy.
Master’s degree and/or teaching experience at the early childhood grade level; understanding of child development and experience working with a range of needs and abilities; interest in creating curriculum that balances socio-emotional, cognitive, and physical development; experience with Responsive Classroom is a plus.
