A place for you on the team
Our classroom model includes three teachers in each classroom, a Lead Teacher, Associate Teacher, and a Teaching Assistant.
The Lead teacher, develops and implements a high-quality education program including lesson plans that reflect the curriculum. Lead Teachers must have Associate Degrees or be in pursuit of one that relates to child development.
The Associate teacher participates in the development and implementation of lesson plans according to the curriculum. The Associate teacher supports the lead teacher and is as integral in the success of the classroom, also serving as lead teacher in the absence of the official lead. Associate teachers must have a current Child Development Associate, teaching experience and be willing to pursuit a higher degree.
The Teaching Assistant provides support in the classroom by taking observations, implementing lesson plans, and suggesting activities to members of the teaching team. Teaching Assistants are required to have a current Child Development Associate (CDA).
Jubilee JumpStart employs substitute teachers who rotate from classroom to classroom as needed. Substitute teachers should have a CDA or education degree or be enrolled in a CDA program or education degree program.
