Position Description: 
The University Child Development School Studio Infant/Toddler program, an innovative Reggio inspired program, is seeking an Extended Day Program (EDP) teacher to join our teaching team as a part-time, hourly employee. Successful candidates are collaborative, exhibit a growth mindset and have experience working with young children. Main responsibilities include collaborating with the teaching team to implement curriculum and projects based on the interest and developmental needs of students and facilitating the day-to-day operations of the EDP program. This position offers opportunities for growth into a full-time salaried teaching position. This is a great position for students or those exploring a career in early childhood education. The pay rate for this position is $21/hour. Program Philosophy: From the youngest age, infants and toddlers tap their natural curiosity and begin to learn through play and investigations. Our program draws from current research that supports the idea that young children need meaningful experiences and relationships to learn and grow. The program is student-centered and designed to celebrate each child as unique. Teachers use observations about children to design curriculum, giving students the assurance to explore, discover, connect and create on their own and in collaboration with others. Designed to be flexible, our curriculum puts children at the center. Learning emerges from children's theories and ideas as they experiment, investigate, question and explore. The curriculum uses extended blocks of time for discovery, play and group projects that feed and inspire children's curiosity. We are currently scheduling interviews from this position. To apply, submit a resume and cover letter to: Katie Walters-Krohn UCDS Studio 5062 9th Ave NE Seattle, WA 98105 katiew@ucds.org Fax: 206-547-3615
