We’re currently recruiting an artistic, experienced educator to fill an Art & Science Studio Teacher role at our Southeast Center!
Because we believe in the importance of the process of making art, rather than focusing on a prescribed product, our Art & Science Studio Teacher offers preschoolers time and materials for artistic exploration on a daily basis. Sometimes that means setting out creative supplies for those children electing to attend open art studio. Other times, they guide small groups on long–term, more involved projects.
The Art & Science Studio Teacher also collaborates with classroom Teachers to design new and evolving hands-on classroom sensory processes, each intended to scaffold art and science skills and conceptualization. Through repeated exploration of a variety of materials appropriate to age and developmental stages, students further develop their independence, curiosity, confidence and a respect for materials in the classroom.
A great candidate will possess experience in art and science instruction, preferably in a licensed child care center or school. Completion of college coursework related to early childhood education and art and/or science is also a wonderful asset.
To work with us - or any licensed Oregon child care center - you must be enrolled in Oregon's Central Background Registry. Also, within your first 30 days of employment, you'll need to have or obtain an Oregon Food Handler's Card and Pediatric CPR/First Aid certification. You'll also need to complete Oregon's Recognizing and Reporting Child Abuse and Neglect course, an Introduction to Child Care Health & Safety, and a Sleep Safety for Oregon’s Infants course.
This role currently starts at $14.00/hour, and since we’re raising wages company-wide this Fall, its hourly wage will automatically rise to $14.50 on September 1st, 2019! We offer opportunities for annual performance reviews and merit-based raises (up to $0.50/hour per review), bonuses, and paid time off, including holidays throughout the year and a Winter Break. We also offer health, vision, dental & life insurance coverage and a 401(k) with a generous company match.
