Kateri Park runs a preschool for 3-5 year olds Monday - Thursday mornings. The students are Somali, Ethiopian, Congolese, and from the Pacific Islands, and are just learning to speak English. They are delightful kids! The head teacher is an experienced professional in early childhood education, trained in Montessori techniques.

You will gain experience in creating a learning environment, establishing a school culture of freedom within limits, working with children in groups and one-on-one, establishing a relationship with parents of different cultures, and learning teaching techniques appropriate for 3-5-year-olds.

This year we have several special needs kids and need extra help working with them one on one.
