Kindergarten and Early Childhood

Assistant or Co-Teacher Position

Nov 13 2017 | The Garland School | Brattleboro, VT

The Garland School seeks an individual who can bring their passion and dedication to teaching a small group of preschool children, in our nature-based program for this school year and onwards. Our student groups are small to allow for a sense of home and individual attention.

The Garland School is a developing member of the Waldorf Early Childhood Association of North America as well as a VT licensed childcare center, with a deep commitment to making Waldorf-inspired education broadly available to our community. The Garland School’s extensive forested campus is a short walk from beautiful downtown Brattleboro, VT. We emphasize free play and seasonal imaginations, and our program also engages deeply with artistic and practical work; we also put a lot of care into the food we serve —we 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. Familiarity with the work of Emmi Pikler is also beneficial.

As a teacher in the Garland community, your work will also include communicating with parents and supporting the life of the school community through 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.
