Early Childhood Center

Teach at Beth Emeth Early Childhood Center (BEECC)!

We are seeking dynamic and passionate Early Childhood Educators to join our educational team at our Reggio-Inspired synagogue preschool in Herndon, VA. Our preschool program serves children ages one through five in a vibrant learning environment focused first and foremost on supporting social-emotional development through play-based learning and emergent curriculum. We value children's thoughts and ideas and pride ourselves on our caring sense of community.

Position hours will include three to five mornings a week (9:00 AM - 1:30 PM). Position to start in late August.

Successful candidates will have a solid understanding of child development, an openness to professional growth, a commitment to working collaboratively as part of a co-teaching team, strong communication skills (oral, writing, reading), and enthusiasm for the educational process of inquiry, observation, and reflection.

Degree in ECE or related field, experience of at least two years in early childhood education settings, and a familiarity with the Reggio Emilia Approach preferred. Applicants from all religious backgrounds are welcome but must be willing to learn about Jewish values, traditions, and rituals.

At Beth Emeth Early Childhood Center (BEECC) we focus on meeting the developmental needs of children in physical, emotional, social, cognitive and spiritual growth. Our school is influenced by the Reggio Emilia Approach, which is built upon the fundamental principles of child development and is known around the world for its innovative and child-centered philosophy. BEECC takes an experiential and intentional approach to teaching and learning; we believe that all children are naturally curious and competent and have unlimited potential to become life-long learners with strong Jewish values.
