You’ll be responsible for establishing and maintaining a safe, healthy learning environment by planning and implementing high quality learning experiences to advance the development of the whole child in partnership with families and other classroom staff.
Early Connections offers additional supports for our staff you won’t find in other early education organizations, including a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) and two Behavioral Health Specialists on staff to assist with children’s health and social emotional development. We also offer professional development opportunities and provide support for family engagement and curriculum and assessment.
