INTERNSHIP AVAILABLE (Last updated 8/19/2020)
Infinity Family Services is seeking Primary Classroom Instructors for our "Preparing Big Siblings for Baby" curriculum and on-site childcare program in Spokane, WA.
Successful candidates will be passionate, reflective, collaborative, innovative and dedicated to providing children with a quality play-based learning environment.
Our mixed age classroom caters to a wide variety of ages and family circumstances but generally focuses on the big emotions, questions and concerns children may have about expecting a new sibling/family member. This means our Classroom Instructors must be comfortable with having developmentally appropriate conversations with a range of ages regarding anatomically correct body parts, relaying a basic understanding of gestation, birth and lactation as well as demonstrating simple infant care techniques and principles in an age-appropriate way.
While no set of limited job functions exists, instructors will be tasked with providing high quality care and education through positive, clear interactions while teaching from a set "Preparing Big Siblings for Baby" curriculum over a series of weeks, which may include reading aloud during a short group time, small group or individual projects, dramatic play, songs/rhymes, music, games and role play.
SAMPLE LESSON PLAN:
You are charged with caring for a mixed-age group of children (8 yo with developmental delays, 4 yo and 1 yo who is independently mobile) for approximately 3 hours in an intimate classroom setting.
Submit a comprehensive supply list and a 3 hr lesson plan. You may choose to work indoors or outdoors.
-Assume the children have appropriate weather gear for all conditions
-Aside from a small play kitchen, reading corner, and child height table, the classroom will only be furnished with materials from your supply list, including snacks (no budget, use your imagination)
-Think about how you will tenderly care for the young toddler while you are actively engaging with the older children
-The sample lesson plan does not need to be related to the "Preparing Siblings for Baby" curriculum listed in the job description
Think this part-time evening/weekend PAID internship sounds perfect for you or a college student you know?
