Parent-Child Teacher

Sep 11 2017 | Monadnock Waldorf School | Keene, NH

Monadnock Waldorf School is seeking a warm, caring, and experienced educator to be our Parent-Child Teacher for the 2017-2018 school year. This position requires a deep understanding of Waldorf Education, paired with a nurturing and warm style of communication. A welcoming, open and supportive presence is a must.

The Parent-Child Program aims to provide a nurturing group experience for young children (from 1-3 years) with the security of a parent nearby. It supports our newest families during their parenting journey and their first entry into Waldorf Education.

The teacher will provide the appropriate environment for children to engage in imaginative play and develop relationships through social interactions. He or she will engage parents in simple crafting projects, along with informal conversations about parenting topics. The teacher will have the opportunity to share specific Waldorf inspired written materials on different subjects, ranging from sleep, nutrition, play, media and self-care.

A vision of inclusiveness with the larger school community must be a vital aspect of this program’s leadership. The teacher will provide ongoing opportunities for the Parent-Child families to learn about upcoming events and encourage their participation, so they feel a part of the life of our thriving EC- 12 school, located in the mountains of southern New Hampshire.
