Tiny hands, bright eyes, growing minds, and endless possibilities.
Teaching in a preschool environment is like no other. One minute you may be teaching the ABCs and the next you may be tying shoelaces. Another minute you may be exploring ways to implement basic math and counting skills into your lesson plan and the next you may be calming a tantrum. It's a truly unique learning environment where the youngest learners are first introduced to academics, proper social behavior, and group learning.
Your job will include encouraging creativity, fostering academic growth, and nurturing your tiny learners. It's a rewarding and fulfilling profession reserved for those who love children and the learning process, who have equal parts enthusiasm and patience, and who feel right at home with paint on their fingers and a storybook in their hands.
