EduKids is Western New York's largest and best early childhood program. We feel strongly that every child must be recognized as an individual, free to shape his or her own patterns, adjust to his or her own environment, choose his or her own interests, and grow at his or her own pace. EduKids allows room and opportunity for growth, friendship, fun, and family for all children.
As a Lead Teacher, you will work side-by-side with teachers, children, and families to provide a home away from home for children throughout the WNY community. You will be responsible for the safety and supervision of children ages 6 weeks - 12 years. You will teach and guide young children to adapt important life skills. Do you have a Pinterest board full of amazing sensory activity ideas? At EduKids, we don't believe in a strict, set curriculum. You will have the absolute freedom to create your own lesson plans each week!
