We embrace a respectful, sensitive, and proactive approach to each child and their family, and we use multicultural and anti-bias materials to ensure a diverse and inclusive classroom.

Your responsibilities will include assisting the Lead Teacher in promoting social competence, fostering emotional health, enhancing physical growth, and boosting cognitive skills in each child. With a special emphasis on literacy and numeracy, you will help prepare our little learners to take on the world with confidence.
