Accountant 

About the Organization At Charlotte Bilingual Preschool, our mission is to prepare Spanish-speaking children for success in school and life by providing superior dual language, multi-cultural early childhood education. We are developing the premier model of culturally appropriate, dual-language early childhood education for Latinx children and their families in Mecklenburg County, North Carolina, and our nation. Our two-generation model:
• Provides 3- and 4-year-old Spanish-speaking children with superior dual language, multi-cultural preschool instruction in the only 5-star licensed dual language preschool program in North Carolina
• Helps families build literacy and kindergarten-readiness skills for their children from infancy to 5-years-old
• Offers family members the resources they want to become active participants in their children's early development
• Trains the next generation of professionally certified dual language early childhood educators
• Expands our reach by partnering with other early childhood education providers to employ our dual language early-education model
• Advocates state- and nationwide for our early-childhood education model, our children, and their families. We design advocacy tools with our families and supporters to encourage them to voice their views with policymakers about removing the systemic barriers that prevent them from thriving.

Our board of directors approved an ambitious strategic plan in early 2020 that includes dramatic expansion. In the next ten years, we plan to serve 1,500 children and their families. This growth requires that we expand our partnerships with other preschools; evolve our current preschool into a full-day early learning center; and greatly expand our region's credentialed dual-language early childhood educator workforce by offering a robust suite of resources to our family members starting on this career path.
