Lead Teacher

Location:

River East School
Atwater Village
Los Angeles, CA

Start Date: August 24, 2020

We are so excited to expand our team and are actively looking for the right candidate to fill both full-time and part-time lead teaching positions at our progressive and innovative preschool, located in Atwater Village!

Our ideal candidate has a diverse skill set and is a true team player; someone with extensive early childhood education experience, a strong command of intentional language, who is an enthusiastic, hands-on leader inspired by working with young children. Background experience in the arts, cooking, nutrition, the Reggio approach, emergent curriculum, play/inquiry-based learning and/or gardening is a huge plus! We prefer applicants to have a Bachelor’s and/or Master’s degree in Early Childhood Development (or equivalent) with experience in the Reggio approach and emergent curriculum, but most importantly are looking for an experienced candidate who has a passion for nurturing young children’s growth.

Our Mission | Philosophy
Our mission is to create an exceptional early childcare environment which focuses on key areas such as social-emotional growth, health, wellness, nutrition, movement, creative exploration, and collaboration, where young children are supported as they learn and grow during a formative period of development. We hope to create a community of conscientious and engaged, life-long learners, who are supported and encouraged to develop their natural interests and abilities to create positive change in the world around them.

We believe education is a journey we chart together. For learning and development to happen organically, it must be communal and symbiotic – meaning the Friends’ curiosities and observations guide our teachers and allow us to develop curriculum together, propelled forward by our experience of the world around us and within us. As one recent alumni said “River East School is where you learn how to be you.”

Key Tenets of our Philosophy
Instead of instructing students, we learn and grow alongside the Friends

We incorporate research-backed principles from the science of wellness, health and mind-body connection into our daily activities and interactions.

We elevate mealtimes by making and serving delicious (and nutritious) organic meals, which is an integral component of our learning process and school experience each day

Each meal is enjoyed while gathered around the table, exchanging ideas, and encouraging adventurous food choices to help facilitate a healthy relationship with food and nutrition.

We favor expansive thought processes and elastic knowledge over fixed information or rote response.

We see children\’s play as intellectual discourse, and a unique language for the expression of ideas, collaboration and movement.

Teachers are meant to encourage and guide play, to help create an optimal environment for socialization and development.

We celebrate “slow” experiences with food, such as baking bread in house, grinding our own flour blends, or heading out to the coop to care for our chickens, and thank them for supplying our school with eggs each day.

We move at each child’s individual pace, and encourage them to not only be self-sufficient, but also to help and guide one another.

We encourage creative collaboration and often work together on collaborative projects, focusing on the process and what we experience as we work together.

We see the environment as the third teacher. Based on this belief, a great deal of care goes into the physical space to make it as cognitively and emotionally engaging as it is aesthetically beautiful.

We consistently refresh the environment based on the friends’ needs and interests.

Our Ideal Candidate | Who You Are

You love to be around children and are energized by their presence.

You have the ability to hold their attention while guiding them throughout the day. You are the ultimate team player and are able to understand the needs of the group while contributing and implementing your own perspective and ideas. You self-identify as a creative or are fascinated by creative individuals and environments.

You are willing to roll up your sleeves and get messy, but are also the type of person to clean up as you go to make sure everything is in its proper place. You have a sense of pride and ownership in your work – you take initiative in getting things done. You are reliable and responsible, especially when it comes to health and safety.

You are an excellent communicator, both in how you speak and how you write – you know how to articulate your thoughts effectively. You have no problem wearing different hats throughout the day depending on what’s needed – from caring for our school chickens to communicating updates with parents.
