I. Company Overview



Founded in 1997 under the name of Rainbow Academy, the company was formed on a foundation of strong family values by Guy & Julia Falzarano.

In an effort to more fully support them, additional programs and services were developed to meet the needs of parents while also educating and caring for children.

There's so much that sets Lightbridge Academy apart from other child care and early education providers. For starters, we know that the quality of the relationships that we form and the service that we provide will ultimately transform the ...

In an effort to more fully support them, additional programs and services were developed to meet the needs of parents while also educating and caring for children.



 



In 2014, the company was renamed as Lightbridge Academy to ensure that our unique company had an equally unique name that would never be confused by any other child care in the marketplace. There's so much that sets Lightbridge Academy apart from other child care and early education providers. For starters, we know that the quality of the relationships that we form and the service that we provide will ultimately transform the lives of those we touch. That is why we take care to treat each family member as our own...and that is just the beginning.



 



II. Company Culture



Caring is at the core of what makes every Lightbridge Academy child care center so special. We specialize on caring for the needs of the entire Lightbridge Academy family through our unique “Circle of Care”. As part of this circle, parents, children, staff and owners are all equally important. The Lightbridge Academy core values define the culture and serve as guiding principles for all to follow.



 




	* Care Deeply… with every genuine interaction.

	* Happiness. Creating happy memories in a joyful environment.

	* Integrity. Being honest and respectful in all relationships.

	* Lead by Example. Set the example for all others to follow.

	* Deliver… consistent “WOW” customer service.

	* Recognize & Celebrate. Build meaningful relationships while recognizing accomplishments.

	* Excellence. Never settling for “good enough” by continuously improving and embracing change.

	* Nurture… each family member in a supportive and positive environment.



 



III. Job Mission



Behind the success of every classroom leader is a dynamic team of Assistant Teachers. The role of an Assistant Teacher is similar to that of a "supporting actress" in the theatre. Always one to be counted on, this person is motivated to get any job done with a high level of enthusiasm, efficiency and organization. The ideal candidate should function as an integral part of a team of educators in implementing lesson plans and creating a warm, welcoming and positive classroom environment.



IV. Job Responsibilities




	* Exemplify the Lightbridge Academy Circle of Care Philosophy and live our Core Values

	* Create and develop strong parent and child relationships

	* Foster a learning environment that stimulates child growth and development

	* Contribute to the creation and implementation of lesson plans

	* Ensure a clean and healthy classroom atmosphere by maintaining children's proper hygiene and following proper diaper changing and potty training policies and procedures

	* Complete a minimum of 20 hours of ongoing professional development 



V. An ideal candidate for this role should possess:




	* Must be articulate, reliable, and possesses a professional demeanor

	* Must love children and have a passion for teaching

	* Prefer a CDA or BA in Education (focus in Early Childhood preferred) or foreign equivalent
