Start Date: January 16, 2018
Radcliffe Child Care Center, a Harvard University-affiliated center, is currently seeking an experienced preschool teacher to join their team of dedicated early childhood professionals. Successful candidates are energetic, compassionate, and eager to learn alongside children, colleagues and parents. Nestled in the heart of Harvard Square, and just steps away from the Charles River, Radcliffe is home to five early childhood classrooms with children three months to five years of age. Our teachers work collaboratively in teams of four to provide the highest quality early childhood education and care. We are inspired by the world-renown schools in Reggio Emilia, Italy. We share the belief that fundamental to our work is a respect for the capabilities and potential of every child and the hopes and dreams of every family. We believe that every child is naturally curious, and that no child exists in isolation from his or her peers, family, teachers or community - each child forms meaning through interactions with others.
We value the participation of families in enriching the child's learning experience, and forging connections between home and the classroom. In addition to being Reggio-inspired, we are an NAEYC accredited program. NAEYC represents a high mark of quality within early childhood education; we believe in maintaining the standards and best practices that are necessary to maintain our accreditation.
Qualified Candidates will have a Bachelor's degree in Early Childhood Education or related field, and a minimum of one to two years of working with young children is preferred. Experience documenting children’s growth is desirable.
Radcliffe offers a very competitive salary commensurate with education and experience, as well as an excellent benefits package and exceptional professional development opportunities.
