Position: Substitute Preschool Teacher
Location: Community Arts Preschool in Walnut Creek, CA
Community Arts Preschool offers developmental early childhood programs inspired by Reggio Emilia practices and encourage child centered, play-based learning. Using elements of the Emergent Curriculum and standards adapted from the national Association for the Education of Young Children’s Developmental Appropriate Practices, our teachers educate the whole child through integrated curricula where children’s emerging ideas and interests play a vital part in our planning. Our programs offer a foundation for meaningful, experiential and creative arts-based learning. Children will experience learning in an inclusive environment – we want children to feel safe learning though making mistakes as well as experiencing the joy in success.
Community Arts Preschool has three locations – Civic Park, Heather Farm, and Shadelands. Each program site has its own unique approach and provides a safe, nurturing environment that promotes the social, emotional, intellectual and physical development of each child. We are seeking substitute teachers with the possibility of more permanent hours in the future for all three locations.
