Teachers Are Valued

Teachers are at the heart of everything we do. We focus on lifting up employee strengths and working together as a team to grow as a school and as individuals. 

Take true ownership in your classroom, write your own lesson plans, and bring your ideas to life as you foster an environment for students to develop and meet age-appropriate milestones. We want you to succeed and grow, with every day as a reminder why you work in this industry: Your love for children.

  • Creative freedom and outside-the-box thinking

Family & Community First

Students are best served by a welcoming school community that encourages collaboration and diversity in our schools and beyond. 

From Day One, this has been a family business. That has been a foundational part of our mission and even as we grow to new facilities, we will never sacrifice that close-knit family approach with our staff. We welcome you to our family and we’re thrilled to have you here with us.

“The kids are learning more about themselves each day, but some days I find that they teach me just as much as I teach them.”

– Melissa Ritchie, Director at Magical Beginnings Middleton Maple Street

Working Smarter, Together

Here we lift each another up and work together. We succeed when we focus on open communication, strong partnerships, and the value of our team. 

Working as a team helps us collaborate and find solutions together, create an encouraging environment for students, and ensure that we are maximizing our time and skillsets to enrich young lives. The close-knit feel from our earliest days is still a staple now, and we know that during your time here, you can build longlasting professional and personal connections. 

What does this mean?

  • A supportive culture and climate
  • Opportunities to grow with the company
  • Working together in co-teacher classrooms
  • Courage bringing new ideas to the table
  • An open-door policy to foster trust and communication
  • A ‘work hard / play hard’ grit and mentality 
  • Your curiosity and desire to improve each day
  • A willingness to learn and grow from making mistakes
  • Being ready for the challenge each day

“I am consistently struck by the hearts and passions of our staff at every level. The camaraderie and support is just something you can’t find in other work places.”

– Courtney Savage, Director at Magical Beginnings River Academy Middleton

Passion & Positivity

Education is our shared passion, and we approach every single day with excitement knowing that we are enriching the next generation of leaders. 

Each staff member at Magical Beginnings brings renewed passion for our work, reminding us that our purpose is clear. We don’t simply provide childcare, but rather we lay the vital foundation for kids to grow into exceptional adults. We teach because we want to make a difference – in our schools, in our communities, and in the world. 

What does this mean?

  • Adapting, learning, and growing every single day
  • A ‘nothing is impossible’ approach to problem-solving
  • Leave impact on early childhood education
  • Mutual respect of new ideas and perspectives
  • A shared belief that people have positive intent
  • Active listening and constructive feedback
  • Being clear on not just what you say, but also how you say it
  • A clear expectation that you will be a positive role model

“We are here together to foster development during the most crucial years and help our students grow. It’s not always easy, but there is nothing more rewarding.”

– Erin Bunnell, Director at Magical Beginnings Wakefield
