Part Time Teacher at Red Hook Playgroup

When: Jan 11, 2021 12:00-4:00 pm

Where: Red Hook Playgroup - 295 Columbia Street

Red Hook Playgroup Part Time Afternoon Teacher Beginning January, 2021
Red Hook Playgroup provides a rich, progressive, community-based early education for children between
the ages of 2.6 and 5. We believe that all children have the desire, ability, and motivation to learn, and we
seek to nurture these natural impulses by providing a beautiful, supportive, and stimulating
environment to encourage all the young minds in our care.
RHP believes preschool education is an investment in the community, and we hope to encourage that
sensibility in each of our students. To this end, RHP fosters an environment of collaborative exploration,
investigation, and discovery where children are encouraged to think critically and creatively, to respect
and support their peers, and to empathize with and learn from each member of their community.
We are seeking a creative, reflective teacher to join our dynamic staff. Candidates should be
knowledgeable about early childhood development and passionate about building deep relationships with
children and meaningful partnerships with their families. The ideal candidate will be knowledgeable
about early childhood development and have experience designing emergent curriculum based around
the interests of children.
Description of the role:
This is a part-time teacher position that will provide afternoon coverage in each of our three classrooms
(2s/3s, Pre-K, K) on a rotating basis. In addition to a teaching partnership with classroom teachers, the
role requires close collaboration with a team of specialists in Art, Music and Science & Garden. Each
year, we spend the fall getting to know each child and the group as a whole. As their individual skills and
collective interests develop, we design long-term emergent investigations with roots in their questions
and passions. Investigations typically culminate in large-scale, collaborative projects that challenge
children and teachers to join forces in extended problem solving.
This role offers and excellent opportunity for a teacher to hone skills in curriculum development and
classroom community building. For the right candidate, there is a possibility of this role developing into a
full time teaching position for the 2021-2022 school year.
Support a warm, nurturing classroom environment where children are known, respected and
appropriately challenged. Foster independence, a spirit of responsibility, caring and community.
Guide children in their learning through developmentally appropriate, creative and thoughtful practices.
Maintain familiarity with Montessori, Reggio Emilia, and other progressive teaching approaches.

Notice and document learning – both individual and collective – through thoughtful observation, note-
taking, use of photo and video, and other methods as appropriate.
Cultivate a spirit of family partnership through attendance at school events, both during and after school
Plan collaboratively with a staff of classroom teachers and specialists to develop learning experiences
and support children’s growth and development.
