S/he is familiar with Center policies, procedures and philosophy as well as licensing laws and regulations. The Assistant Teacher helps to maintain an orderly, secure, and mentally stimulating environment for children. This is accomplished through organizational skills, patience, sense of humor, and a joyful approach toward others. S/he is expected to take advantage of books and other educational resources to learn more about the developmental stages and needs of the children served and the older adults with whom the children interact.
The focus of this position is working with and through others, building and maintaining relationships, and working closely and accurately within established guidelines. There is a need for an effective communicator, someone who is able to stimulate and motivate others while being aware of and responsive to their needs and concerns.

The person in this position must be friendly and genuinely interested in the business, agenda, and needs of others, including the company, its management, the team, the company’s customers, or all of the above.

If the job involves managing others, following up carefully, closely, and cheerfully is required to ensure both correct work and maintenance of the relationships. Necessary corrections must be made in a constructive, supportive manner. As time is usually a factor, the work must be done on time, as well as correctly. In general, this is a position where guidelines, structure, and established policies must be followed fairly closely, while working with and for others.
