Employer Overview

JAM Early Education fosters an environment that allows children to learn through exploring the world around them. For each child we serve, from the youngest infant at 6 weeks old to our preschooler ready to transition to kindergarten, that will look a little different. Students are planned for based on their individual interests, needs, and learning goals. We are not a "one shoe fits all" Early Education center. We focus on providing children with principle based learning experiences that ignite their curiosity and desire to learn. Just as children are always learning, so are our teachers and staff. Learning is lifelong! Our teachers support and provocate children's thinking and learning, while also exploring their own. We are seeking passionate teachers who will support children through their journey at JAMEE!

Why our teachers love working at JAM:

-"We as teachers not only support children, but we support each other"

-"We don't just teach ABC's, colors, 123's, but we teach independence, respect, and a sense of self and belonging"

-"There is no 'one size fits all'; learning is individualized for both children and teachers"

Join our amazing team of passionate educators who are doing incredible things for children!
