Infant Toddler Teacher

For more than 100 years, the Christopher House mission has been to strengthen and empower economically disadvantaged children and their families by providing a continuum of educational and human services.  Our integrated web of support services helps build thriving families by equipping them with the tools they need to become self-sufficient and progress in their social, emotional, educational and economic development. 

We operate accredited early learning, elementary, and out of school time programs grounded in research-based curricula and high-quality instruction.  Christopher House values high expectations and an educational program that leverages arts integration, project-based learning, parent involvement, celebration of diversity, and a commitment to measurable results.  These values are the framework of our learning community and extend to students, parents, teachers, and administrators.  These values have resulted in educational services that produce significant returns in student achievement and parental involvement.  Our dynamic and innovative programs lead the field in accountability and achievement by establishing and exceeding rigorous academic, social and emotional outcomes.

In the fall of 2013, Christopher House will build on its portfolio of early learning centers and expand our transformative culture into a birth to eighth grade school composed of an Early Learning and an Elementary Learning House.  The Elementary Learning House will be a K-8 charter school.  The school will create unprecedented collaboration between early childhood and elementary educators as well as family support programs.  In addition, it will provide foundational exposure during the earlies years of life to our culture of high expectations and academic excellence. 

Christopher House is looking  for a motivated, responsible, and caring Master Infant Teacher for our Uptown Family Resource Center.  The infant teacher applicant should have the ability to provide leadership and supervision to assistant teachers; be deeply committed to working with children and helping families with challenging situations; adaptable; have a love for continually growing and learning about the field of early childhood and infant development; and be able to meet the demands of lifting, bending, and continually sitting down and getting up as is required in the infant room.  We are in the beginning stages of implementing Reggio Emilia practices and want team members interested in this approach.

Qualifications: Experience working with infants/toddlers in an Early Head Start program.  Fluency in a second language desired.

Education:  Bachelor Degree in Early Childhood Education or Child Development.  The infant/toddler credential is highly desirable.

Please do not apply if you do not have early childhood or child development credits as this is a requirement of our funders.
