EEC Certified Full-Time Infant, Toddler and Preschool Teacher

Summary Description:

The Infant Toddler Children’s Center is a full day, year round early childhood program for children 3 months to 8 years old. We are located on a 3-acre campus in Acton, MA that includes 4 age-appropriate play yards, a small children’s garden, an on-site nature trail, and access to extensive conservation land within a short walk from school.

At ITC, we celebrate the competence of young children and provide a rich, responsive curriculum that is crafted by each classroom team in order to support individual learning and development. Our unique approach to care and education respects both learner and teacher. Teachers are encouraged to build strong relationships with the children in their care. Through careful observation, thoughtful reflection and collaborative planning with co-teachers, educators create curriculum that offers a balance of novelty and familiarity. Children are empowered through experiencing predictable routines and rituals that are grounded in their daily rhythms. Within this safe environment, they are free to take risks, explore and stretch themselves as they are ready, always knowing there is a safe harbor at the ready in their trusting relationships with caregivers.
Role Overview:
  • Teachers at ITC have a great deal of autonomy in their classrooms
  • They are charged with building their own curriculum each year, an ongoing process that is supported by paid planning time, weekly team meetings and monthly staff meetings.
  • Our professional staff is an eclectic mix of curious educators who do more than teach, each bringing their unique gifts to the daily work of caring for young children in groups.
  • Opportunities for professional growth are encouraged and facilitated in a variety of ways. At ITC, none of us are “done” learning, but consider excellence in early education to be an evolving art, one we must continue to assess and adapt as we learn and grow— as individual teachers and as a program.

Our teacher compensation package includes a competitive salary, healthcare benefits, paid vacation, sick days, and holidays, and allows teachers to contribute to a 403B plan after 13 months employment. If you are not just looking for a job in childcare, but a career, ITC may be the place for you.
