Early Childhood Teacher

Location:

Multiple locations in Denver Colorado

Start Date: March 29, 2021

Description, Responsibilities, & Duties

OPENair Academy is looking for passionate, creative and inspired Early Childhood Teachers. OPENair Academy is inspired by the preschools of Reggio Emilia, a town in northern Italy where the Reggio approach to learning was born. Reggio schools value children as capable and active participants in their own learning.

Children are celebrated: as competent learners, as active constructors of knowledge, and as pursuers of their own innate interests and curiosities.

Teachers act as guides, encouraging children to dive deeper into their understanding of themselves, their environment and their interactions with others. Special attention is given to the environment, which is seen as a third teacher that inspires children to explore and collaborate with peers, teachers and parents.

Reggio schools are largely built on four fundamental values: the child as a competent learner, the environment as a third teacher, the necessity of collaboration in learning and the importance of making learning visible.
