Bald Hill Rd
compensation: starts at $18/hr
employment type: full-time
job title: Daycare Assistant
Danby Daycare operates as a Montessori-inspired nature school. We appreciate the independence fostered by the Montessori method and the ability it creates in children to engage in a state of “flow” while focusing on their work. We believe it is at this age that we build the foundation of our future learning and we want to create an environment that prepares children for the modern and future world. We do this by working on practical life skills and socio-emotional learning while supporting children in developing their executive function at an early age.

We are looking for an assistant to support both the infant classroom and the toddler room as needed. The ideal candidate will be organized and able to multitask and pivot as needed. They would be good at taking a backseat and allowing the children to lead their learning, while following the lead of the Lead teachers. Good organizational and cleaning skills are a must.

Required Qualifications:
At least 1 year of experience working with young children, or 2+ years working with children of any age
A patient disposition and ability to respond creatively to children’s behavior
Ability to quietly observe children and discretion to step in when needed
Appreciation for beauty and a desire to maintain a clean, orderly and beautiful work environment for the children
Flexibility and desire to adapt to our approach and philosophy
Openness to learning about and implementing alternative teaching methodologies (Montessori, Reggio Emilia)
A willingness and desire to spend time outside in all weather conditions

Preferred Qualifications:
Spanish speaking
Classroom management skills
Experience in a Montessori classroom or in other alternative teaching
Knowledge of childhood development

You will need to go through a vetting process before starting which includes:
Criminal background
Health form completed with TB results
3 references (Non-family)
AED/CPR and First Aid Certification
Health and Safety certificate (5 hours of training)

Our schedule is 8:15 am-4 pm Monday through Thursday. We are open to part-time (8:30-12:45) or possibly full-time for the right person. Pay starts at $18/hour.
