JOB OPENING: Assistant Early Childhood Teacher

We have an opening for an Assistant Teacher in our PAL (Play & Learn) program; working with children ages 2 - 6 years. The successful candidate will work with a lead teacher, assisting with all aspects of our program.

Initially this opening is for approximately 20 hours per week for the summer months, June - September, but could extend into a year round position. 

This is an opportunity to truly make a difference to the children and families of our Island. We are looking for a team player, with a genuine interest in helping young children, grow and learn at their own pace. We believe that children learn through play and hands on experiences; our assistant teachers are an essential part of the children's learning. 

All applicants must be at least 18 years old and pass a Department of Early Learning background check and TB test. Experience working with young children a plus but we will train the right candidate.

For an application and more information contact Jane Hobbs, Director Lopez Children's Center

THANK YOU TO OUR SUPPORTERS

The board, staff and families at the Lopez children's Center would like to express our appreciation for all the support we receive from the Lopez community and beyond.

The Preschool Bazaar and our annual appeal were both successful.  It would not be possible for the Children's Center to offer quality early learning experiences to the young children in our community without this support.

Thank you so much!

COMING SOON - LOPEZ COOP PRESCHOOL HOLIDAY BAZAAR

The 2016 Preschool Holiday Bazaar will be held on Saturday November 26th at the Lopez High School Gym. 10am - 3pm

Preparations are in full swing and we are expecting an exciting fun filled day. The gym will be filled with vendors selling beautiful handmade items, pretty much everything you need to complete your holiday shopping.  Vendors share 15% of their proceeds with the Preschool, so the more you shop the more we raise to support our program.

A bake sale, hot food and a raffle will round out the day.  All these proceeds go directly to the Preschool.  Raffle tickets will also be available for purchase in advance from preschool families and on select days at Lopez Village Market.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank the community for all their support over the years.


VENDORS:  Registration forms for the Bazaar will be available from October 10th.  Please call Candace Downey (vendor coordinator)  468-2678 to be added to the mailing list.
