Teacher Positions

Jul 04 2017 | The Garland School | Brattleboro, VT

We are seeking individuals who can bring their passion and dedication to teaching pre-school children in our nature-based program with the option of starting currently as a co-teacher, and evolving into the summer and next year. Our children’s ages range from ages 1-6 years old.

Garland is a developing member of WECAN, as well as a VT licensed childcare center, with a deep commitment to making Waldorf-inspired education broadly available to our community. Garland’s extensive forested campus is a short walk from beautiful downtown Brattleboro, VT. As well as an emphasis on free play, and seasonal imaginations, our program engages deeply with artistic and practical work; we also put a lot of care into the food we serve —our teachers (and students!) collaborate with our cook to provide a hearty organic lunch and two snacks daily.

Preferred candidates will possess Waldorf training and/or experience in Waldorf early childhood (although candidates early in their career are also encouraged to apply), and have a deep love of sharing the outdoors with children. To qualify as a head teacher, applicants should possess around 21 college credits relating to education or human development, or the equivalent. To qualify as an assistant, 3 credits in the same fields are required. Familiarity with the work of Emmi Pikler is also beneficial.

As a teacher in the Garland community, your work includes working closely with colleagues to hold the school, which includes communicating with parents, festival work, faculty meetings, fundraising, and school events. In addition, individuals who have a love of sharing story and song, interest in local whole-foods cooking, gardening, and spending extended time outdoors are desirable. Pay is commensurate with experience.

To apply, please send your resume, cover letter and three references to
Elia Gilbert at [email protected] or phone us at
(802) 258-9531.
