Lead teacher ages 3 - 5
The Garland School is seeking an energetic and well-rounded individual who can confidently lead a group of young children. Depending on experience and interest, this teacher will work with children ages 3 - 5 (mixed-age group). This position involves work within both a play-based classroom setting and outdoors on the 200 acres of forest and stream surrounding our school. Teachers should be prepared to be outside in all weather, including eating some meals outside.
Along with nature immersion and Waldorf-inspired principles, the school's educational philosophy incorporates the work of Emmi Pikler and Helle Heckmann. Our outdoor time includes walking the trails, exploring the woods, working in the vegetable garden, and wading in the stream. We serve a local and organic breakfast, lunch, and snack daily. We follow a seasonal rhythm in our curriculum and have four Waldorf-inspired festivals per school year.
