Job Description

Preschool is the only school environment where play and creativity are more important than worksheets and homework. Lead Preschool teachers use playtime and story-time to encourage social development and teach problem-solving skills. They host story-time and monitor sandbox play but don't assign homework or act as detention monitors. You'll come home covered in glue and papier-mch, but without papers to grade. Regardless of how infantile your days may seem you will keep a smile on your face and an open mind!
