We are a learning community that adheres to a developmental approach and our classrooms provide a variety of sensory, hands-on, child-centered activities. The foundation of our practice begins with the philosophy that children are more apt to ask questions and approach challenges in a classroom where they feel safe and nurtured. The teachers at GCS are deeply committed to ensuring that every child feels respected and valued, with the understanding that a child’s first school experience can set the stage for a love of learning that continues beyond preschool.
Mentored by a Head Teacher, Associate Teachers participate in all aspects of classroom life.
- Bachelor’s degree, preferably in Early Childhood education or a related field.
- Experience with preschoolers.
- Warmth, patience and a sense of humor are essential.
- This is an ideal position for a graduate student, recent graduate or career-changer.
Competitive salary. The school covers 100% of Health Insurance for the employee and offers a Flexible Spending Plan. In the second year of employment, GCS contributes to a 403b retirement savings plan. Early Childhood Education graduate tuition is reimbursed at the CUNY rate beginning the 2nd year of employment.
