  • Pre-school Teacher

    The Opportunity
    The Albany Academies is seeking a Preschool teacher. Pre-school is the earliest entry point into the Early Childhood Program. 

    The Early Childhood Program 
    Purpose 
    The skills, habits, knowledge, and understandings developed in The Albany Academies Early Childhood program prepare children to be successful in our Primary Program (Grades 1-4) and beyond. This is accomplished through both play-based and cognitive approaches to growth and development. We spark curiosity and guide children to be passionate, inquisitive, and engaged learners who are also emerging as resilient and purposeful regarding their own development. In this phase of our program, children will experience both co-ed and single-sex environments. The preschool classroom is co-ed. 

    Components of the Early Childhood Program 
    The key components of our program include learning through play, child-centered classrooms, whole-child approach, cooperative learning, differentiated instruction, family-school partnership, and the systematic development of foundational content, skills, and habits. 

    One of the hallmarks of an Academy education is collaboration in learning. In our Early Childhood program, we build the civic virtues and social competencies that support collaboration through a “centers” approach. Learning centers are teacher created spaces and activities in the room designed for children to explore, acquire academic skills, and create, with increasing independence. Some centers stay the same all year, while others change weekly or daily depending on the topics and themes being studied. 

    Thematic units provide the learning framework for a year of learning in the Early Childhood program. Themes such as seasons, lifecycles, families, and communities, are the centerpiece of learning around which teachers plan literacy activities, learning centers, discussions, field trips, and projects. 

    The family-school partnership ensures consistency, support, and a positive relationship. The program is based in a safe, compassionate, warm, and respectful atmosphere. This promotes secure attachment between the child, the teacher(s), and the school community. Regular communication to home regarding daily activities promotes child-family communication regarding the program to ensure smooth transitions between school and home. We refer to this family-child-school relationship as the triangle of secure attachment. 

    Program Outcomes 
    In addition to meeting and exceeding academic standards, students in the Early Childhood program at The Albany Academies also develop: 

    Character: 
    • Discover and develop a curiosity for learning 
    • Begin to manage personal needs 
    • Work through challenges and obstacles 
    • Actively engage in their experience 
    Personal virtues: 
    • Use words instead of actions in difficult situations 
    • Adapt to changes in routine 
    • Accept and implement creative suggestions from others 
    Cognitive Values: 
    • Try another way to do something when suggested by a peer 
    • Attempt to solve a problem by guessing based on past success 
    • Try not to repeat a mistake 
    Civic Virtues: 
    • Participate in class responsibilities 
    • Identify behaviors that are sensitive to the needs of others 
    • Show concern for others and the community 
    Social Virtues: 
    • Listen to others and engage in cooperative play 
    • Work with other children to complete a task 
    • Recognize the contributions of other children 
    Moral Character: 
    • Take turns and wait for turn 
    • Invite other children to join an activity, 
    • Show an understanding that other children may feel differently from self 
    Children successfully completing the Early Childhood program will be developing young learners who are curious, purposeful thinkers with emerging personal, intellectual, and social virtues. 

    The Preschool Teacher Role 
    The role of the teacher is to be caring, flexible, and attentive to the changing needs and developmental stages of their students. Teachers model the behaviors, skills, and habits they wish to instill in their students. Facilitate active learning, creativity, and inquiry through daily lessons and activities. Strike the delicate balance of knowing when to observe, when to encourage, when to guide, when to redirect, when to teach, when to question, and when to intervene throughout the day. Engage parents in their child’s learning and development in a variety of ways including daily feedback, regular conferences, and school events. 

    Experience 
    • 2 years of teaching experience with young learners 
    Education 
    • Bachelor’s degree (required) 
    • Master’s degree (preferred) or Equivalent experience

    The Albany Academies, a Pre-School through 12 independent school located in Albany, New York, coordinates single-sex and coeducational learning environments to develop diligent students of high character who become curious, critical thinkers.

    The Soccer Program
    We offer a wide range of athletic teams for students starting in grade 7. Student-athletes are expected to participate in multiple sports. Our coaches focus on the development of each individual and are passionate about their sport.
