This job is no longer accepting applications.

Rudolf Steiner School of Ann Arbor is seeking an Early Childhood Administrative Coordinator to join our strong and joyful Early Childhood department. This person would have organizational skills, be detail oriented, and want to be a part of a collaborative team. Our school is looking for someone who values authentic relationships, innovation, and a commitment to Diversity, Equity & Inclusion work. This position is a full-time position serving students and faculty in our Early Childhood Program.  

Working at our organization means that you become a part of a community that cares about you as a person, your continued development, your life and family. We value human connection and create an environment that inspires that within our students, families, and colleagues. We offer tuition remission for those who have children.

This individual will work with our early childhood faculty, our Early Childhood Pedagogical Coordinator and our School Administrator to oversee the daily operations of the early childhood department, such as staffing, attendance and illness, licensing and enrollment. 

As a community, we continue to hold the question of how to best meet the children of today through a pedagogy that upholds the dignity of each human being, and what we must reimagine to do so. Waldorf education was created to offer a multi-sensory and holistic approach to education that strives to acknowledge the gifts and struggles of every individual. This pedagogy works to meet the developmental needs of children as it supports children’s academic, social and emotional health through critical thinking, creativity, arts, and movement. We believe children need less memorization and testing, and instead, more connection and hands-on learning inspired by the truth, beauty, and wisdom of our world. This education was also founded on the principle that faculty should play an active role in governance and decision making, as they are the ones who are serving the community.

We support our students, teachers, and administration through a strong curriculum, schedules, festivals, and school-wide collaboration. We offer both Spanish and German from first to twelfth grade, a growing movement program, strong fine and practical arts, choral and instrumental music. We celebrate a wide mix of traditional festivals from around the world, including Rosh Hashanah, Diwali, Day of the Dead, Lunar New Year, and Eid. The faculty meets weekly and studies various topics. We have a strong and active faculty, and over the past year we have worked with Alma Partners to develop our work in diversity, equity, and inclusion. 

The Lower School Campus (Early Childhood – 8th grade) is on 12 wooded and grassy acres and currently enrolls nearly 220 students. The campus is set in a suburban neighborhood, close to the river. Our High School campus is a short drive away, with an average of 18-28 students per grade, located a short distance from downtown Ann Arbor, the university and hospital. 

Outside of our campus, the extended Ann Arbor area offers the richness and diversity of a university town with a small-town feel. It has many events, festivals, art, music, dance and social activities throughout the year. Ann Arbor is rich in natural landscapes, providing many scenic parks along the river and nearby lakes. It also is an area with many different job opportunities for other family members, if needed. We are a forty-minute drive from the culture of Detroit, which offers the richness of an urban center, museums, and cultural connections. Michigan’s watersheds and the Great Lakes offer wonderful places to visit and vacation. To see more about Ann Arbor, visit: Michigan's Guide to Ann Arbor.


We offer an equitable salary structure, with a range from $41,000 to $75,000. Our benefits package includes health insurance, base and matching 503b contributions, life/disability insurance and significant tuition remission for children. For candidates moving to Ann Arbor, we offer some relocation support.
