About CodeLinkd

*

We, at CodeLinkd, strongly believe that coding can be used for more than just creating applications. We are extremely passionate about bringing computer science to kids from a very early age, tapping into their endless creativity and helping them create beautiful and responsible code. With exposure to smartphones from their toddler years, kids have a natural interest in computers. To have the ability to harvest that interest and transform it into learning is a huge opportunity.

Learning to code should be compared to learning a new language or a musical instrument. It helps increase perseverance, improves memory, teaches patience, and nurtures creativity. It helps enhance their capacity to reason, solve problems thoughtfully and make effective decisions from a very early age. Coding helps sharpen the analytical and cognitive skills of kids. We strongly believe that we can help discover that hidden potential within kids and teach them how to approach real-world scenarios - all by teaching them how to code.

Coding is a basic life skill. We want these kids to explore careers in different fields where their hearts lie, be it medicine, automotive manufacturing, finance or arts and design - and be well-equipped to do so.

At CodeLinkd, we offer a variety of courses for kids of ages five and up. Our courses have a mix of coding, robotics, circuits, unplugged exercises, and other STEAM concepts.

  • Possess an understanding of basic coding concepts. A degree in computer science is not mandatory. Every CodeLinkd instructor will undergo training in order for them to get familiar with the course curriculum and concepts that will be taught in different courses.

  • Should be available during CodeLinkd class hours. CodeLinkd classes currently happen during after-school hours on weekdays and for a few hours on weekends.

  • Should be able to commute via their own mode of transport to different locations across the South Bay (such as Saratoga, Los Gatos, and San Jose)

  • Should be willing to undergo a test for tuberculosis and live scan. Most community and cultural centers require instructors to undergo both tests. CodeLinkd will reimburse any costs involved.

  • Should have strong moral values and discipline

This full time position is for our Infant teacher

A little bit about us and the position: At Knowledge Tree Children's Academy, we believe that every child is a born artist, scientist, inventor, constructor and explorer, and we are here to help them express and develop these interests. Our philosophy is that every child is an active constructor of their own knowledge and we create an environment where this construction is both fun and engaging for every child.

To support our teachers, we set up lower than licensing ratio in each classroom. Max. of 2 to 20 in the preschool class, 3 to 16 in the toddler option class and 2.5 to 8 in the infant class. We create an enriched environment by generously supporting teachers with toys, books and supplies. In addition, we know that many teachers often buy supplies using their personal money so we give each class a monthly allowance for disposable art supplies. We hired an onsite curriculum coordinator who supports teachers with curriculum planning and classroom preparation.

Our environment: 

We are proud to say that we are one of the most beautiful and unique child care facilities you ever seen. We believe that children learn from the environment they live and learn, so a homelike, pleasant, clean and organized place will stimulate their learning.

Our Curriculum: 

We adapted our successful story curriculum as the core curriculum and integrated diverse cultures, additional resource classrooms and second languages into the program. We have two special activity rooms that you cannot find anywhere else: Children’s Art Studio and Children’s Multi-cultural Kitchen. Children will use them for weekly special art and cooking projects.

Our story-based curriculum is a distinct learning method that engages children with topics that they are interested in and enthusiastic about. Reading interesting stories triggers a child’s curiosity to ask questions. In order to find answers to these questions, children actively desire to read, to sense, to experience and to explore. They also spontaneously utilize their language, drawing, writing, body language and creativity to present their “project research results.” In the meantime, children will be driven to new questions that they are interested in, which leads to new projects of learning and exploration. Therefore, finding answers to questions is the process of self-challenging, self-accomplishing and learning for the children.

Responsibilities and Duties

• Work with co-teachers to lead and plan curriculum activities that stimulate children interest and ability following Knowledge Tree requirements.

• Maintain a well-organized and clean classroom by continually restoring and enhancing the environment suitable for children.

• Participate in need and service meetings, parent/teacher conferences.

• Participate in staff meeting and professional development training.

• Provide daily intake to children, comments and close communication with parents.

• Maintain records on each child’s progress and development for planning and evaluation.

• Ensure the daily care of every child by following all licensing guidelines and implementing center standards.

• Be flexible to work in other classrooms and other schedules when needed

Qualifications and Skills

• 12 Core ECE Units completed or 6 ECE units completed and enrolled in other 6 units

• We prefer 1 or more years of experience working in a child care center

• Be able to lift at least 40 lb weight

• Team Player

• Be able to Provide Health report and TB clearance.

• Have current certification in pediatric first aid, CPR or willing to obtain

• Positive and motivated attitude is very important

• Open-minded for new challenges and learning

• Clean and organized

• References from previous employers

• Willing to have a work interview

Benefits

• Competitive pay rate

• 401K with up to 4% match

• Classroom Allowance for teachers to buy art supplies in addition to school toys and equipment
