We appreciate you taking the time to come to this page and consider joining the amazing Young Scholars Academy teaching team.
Young Scholars is a privately-owned, family run business here in Colorado Springs. Unlike a corporate program, our team and our kids dictate the learning and routines that happen in the day to day. We believe that passionate and intentional teachers join this field to positively impact children and families, and we do not believe in forcing that creativity into a box.
The Early Childhood Educators that work within Young Scholars have the following qualities:
- Adaptability, flexibility (c’mon it’s kids, sometimes it gets crazy!)
- positivity and professionalism
- intellect, common sense and learning capabilities
- go-getters who want to climb ladders
Being that we are family-run we want our team members to feel like they are part of the bigger picture of what we do. You are more than just an "employee" you are a on occasion a parent, educator and person and we strive to make everyone feel valued in that way!
Young Scholars Academy has a resource room where our teachers can gather materials needed for their classrooms, have study-based resources for their curriculum, as well as Team Leaders to help you throughout your day-to-day! They say it takes a village to raise kids, it also takes one to teach them!
Benefits include but are not limited to; Educated, and experienced teaching team, (no reason to feel like you’re doing it by yourself!) PTO, medical, dental and vision, competitive wages and even offer tuition credit for those it in for the long haul. Additionally, we offer discounted (or in some cases free) child-care in a program considered to be the BEST in Colorado Springs EIGHT years in a row. While you’re educating other children know your child is getting an education from a nationally-accredited program too!
Please download the application and you can either bring it by or send it in and we will be in contact with you! We also encourage you to come in and take a tour, ask questions of our teachers and sit down to discuss possibilities. We currently have an energetic team full of fantastic teachers. Just think, a great teaching team is always learning from each other and never stops learning. Thinking you’re the missing piece to our team, looking forward to meeting YOU!
"I started working here about a month ago, bringing my 3 year old son with me. I have been in the childcare industry for about 8 years now, but nothing beats YSA! The NAEYC accreditation is HUGE. Not only has my son academically learned more in the past month, than he has the past year, but he has also completely broken out of his shell! The educational aspect all the teachers at YSA take pride in, truly shows in my sons growth... And I get to be a part of it! Not only this, but we came from a very small town from a center about half the size. Colorado Springs (and especially the Northeast side where we are) is definitely a "big city change" for us. As a mom, I was nervous about leaving my small town atmosphere, and where my son has grown to know. However, everyone.. Families and staff.. Have made this transition much easier on us. The vibe of YSA is extremely family focused and community driven. That is something you just can't "teach"! And I am forever grateful for that. I highly recommend this learning center to anyone " ~Caitlin H.
