Job Description

Position components:

There are 5 essential expectations tied to the role of Preschool Teacher:

1. An image of a strong and capable child

Everything the teacher will do in the course of a school day will reflect an image of a strong and capable child. The teacher will be asked to revisit and explain their work based on this fundamental belief.

Teachers will maintain the highest standards of care, child protection and safeguarding at all times by upholding the 3Ps: Protection, Provision and Participation as outlined in UN Convention on the Rights of the Child

2. Growth mindset

The teacher will participate in professional growth that addresses and challenges their own self-belief. The ability to embrace new ideas- different truths- and move out of their comfort zone will be integral to the position. Teachers will commit to collaborating regularly with peers in order to understand and extend their own, and children’s theories, thoughts, ideas and questions.

3. The importance of the environment and provision.

The teacher will show an avid interest in setting up both the indoor and outdoor environment. Teachers will have the ability, or growing interest to work with a fluid environment, changing the provision in response to children’s interests. The classroom set-up will reflect the philosophy of the overall preschool and teachers will ensure it is ordered (allowing for self- access), inviting and beautiful.

4. Pedagogical knowledge

Teachers will show an avid interest in practicing in an authentically responsive way. Teachers will make their pedagogical knowledge visible through documentation via learning stories, reflective journals, transcribing scholars’ work, observations and narratives. They will use technology as a tool for learning, organizing and allowing scholars to gain deeper insights into learning projects.

5. Relationships

Teachers will understand the importance of building authentic relationships with parents who are a child’s first teachers. Teachers will be expected to communicate with children, colleagues, families and the wider community using a strengths based approach.
