Job Description

Professionals Caring About Your Child’s Education:This is the motto that has served Mini University well for over 25 years.  Each word indicates the significant role a Teacher accepts when joining the Mini U Team.

Teachers are responsible for supporting the emotional and educational needs of young children.  They must intentionally prepare and maintain an enriched learning environment.  They routinely assess the needs of each child in their class, and then use this assessment data to differentiate and individualize instruction to support each child’s developing skills and knowledge.  Teachers are held accountable for nurturing children, responding to their interests and needs, and making learning meaningful.  They implement the curriculum, supervise other members of the teaching staff (Assistants, Support Staff and Substitutes), and work with diverse families, administrators and team members.

Teachers are expected to maintain a very high level of quality and excellence in early care and education by being able to understand, articulate and meet the standards, criteria, curriculum and guidelines outlined in the following:

National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) Accreditation Standards and Criteria http://www.naeyc.org/community/torch; Ohio Department of Job and Family Services (ODJFS) Child Care Licensing Regulations http://jfs.ohio.gov/cdc/providers.stm; Ohio’s Early Learning and Development Standards (ELDS)  http://www.earlychildhoodohio.org/elds.php; Creative Curriculum http://teachingstrategies.com/curriculum/; and Step Up to Quality www.earlychildhoodohio.org

The profession of Early Childhood Education is rapidly changing in Ohio and across the country.  Teachers must make a commitment to stay abreast of these changes by reading the latest research on achieving positive child outcomes and being willing to try new strategies to best serve the needs of young children and their families.  It’s an exciting time to be a Teacher of young children.  Each day you should laugh, play, grow and learn as you nurture and teach young children.
