Position Summary:

Early Childhood educator IIIs (ECEIII) work with their educational team to provide high quality early care and education for infants, toddlers or preschoolers. They demonstrate an understanding of the NAEYC Code of Ethical Conduct and Position on Developmentally Appropriate Practices incorporate both consistently. ECEIIIs engage in collaborative planning and critical reflection to maintain a classroom where the environment, curriculum and responsive interactions are intentional and based on the most current research of the field. They provide a positive climate for children, families, early childhood students, team members and center staff. They create an environment where differences are valued and a growth mindset is expected.

While all members of the teaching team actively engage children and maintain classroom organization and routines using play-based and child-centered pedagogies, over half (54 %) of the ECEIII’s job responsibilities focus on implementing the curriculum and engaging with children. ECEIIIs contribute to assessment-supported curriculum by collecting and compiling children’s work samples to be used to document children’s learning. They are also responsible for collecting and compiling examples of high quality practice to share with university students, families and the early childhood community.

● At least 1 year of teaching experience with infants, toddlers and/or preschoolers.

● Demonstrates understanding of developmentally appropriate practice that is child-centered and play-based.
● Respects individual differences and demonstrates an understanding of culturally responsive practice in children, families and peers.
● Demonstrates the ability to communicate effectively orally and in writing.
● Demonstrates understanding of the collaboration skills needed to work effectively as part of an educational team.
● Demonstrates a high level of professionalism.
● Proficiency in Microsoft Office Suite, Google mail, docs, forms and social media tools.

● More than 1 year teaching experience with infants, toddlers, and/or preschoolers.
● Experience teaching an integrated, project-based, emergent and STEM curriculum.
● Experience with online communication and record keeping tools such as Moment Path.

Special Instructions to Applicants:

A federal court on December 7, 2021, issued a ruling that suspends the COVID-19 vaccine requirement that applies to federal contractors nationwide. With this development, the University will pause any enforcement action against employees who have not complied with the requirement to be fully vaccinated by Dec. 8, 2021 or to have requested an exemption to maintain their employment status.

The University will continue to monitor the state of the pandemic on campus and in the community as well as developments in federal and state requirements, and also will continue to regularly consult with public health officials and our medical panel. As has been the case throughout the pandemic, our protocols and requirements are subject to change depending on conditions on campus or in our community, and government requirements.
