First and foremost we are a business
based in “Gratitude”!
This approach is how we run our business, how we treat our families, our children, our Teachers, camp counselors and volunteers. Puddle Jumpers does not believe in the use of the traditional Hierarchy system used in most Preschool and childcare settings. We do not have “Lead” Teachers or “Assistant” Teachers. All of our staff must be qualified or trained to be a “Lead” Teacher. We all do the same job and the responsibility of running this program is equally shared by all staff.
Everyone is responsible for cleaning, supervision
and teaching, changing diapers, potty training, etc. While each
individual will bring in their own talents, interests, abilities, and
experiences, everyone is expected to share in the duties of
running our program and everyone will be rewarded by our successes. We offer competitive pay to qualified applicants in a lovely, inspiring, safe, happy work
environment full of fresh air, sunshine, mud puddles, rain boots, nature walks,
music, science, trees, insects, lizards and frogs, snowmen,
sandcastles and eternal childhood!
