This job is no longer accepting applications.
We are seeking an experienced Waldorf Early Childhood educator to join our community of innovative educators, beginning with the 2022 school year. The ideal candidate is WECAN certified and is able to offer a full outdoor program. Because of COVID-19 all classes are based outdoors, but each class also has an indoor classroom. Our classes have access to a full complement of nature experiences: woodland, forest, and garden, and in walking distance, the magical Sligo Creek.
We are looking for an organized, skillful communicator who works well with colleagues and parents, and is excited to join a team of teachers committed to the values of diversity and innovation. A strong understanding of child development and a capacity to provide parent support and healthy communication are essential. A bachelor’s degree (or 120 hours of college credit) is required. An interest in Anthroposophy is valued.
Interested candidates should send a letter of interest, resume, and three references to email@example.com.
