We are taking steps toward more nature based learning, and are seeking a Lead Preschool Teacher who can help us grow along that path! While our program prides itself on always providing engaging and appropriate curriculum, we want to see our natural environment become more prominent in the children's discoveries.

Are you an experienced early educator looking to work in an environment that is professional and academically based? Have you recently finished your degree and are now looking to start your career in Early Childhood Education? Maybe you have completed, or have nearly completed, the Apprenticeship Program? Our school is looking for a Lead Preschool Teacher to join our amazing team! If you have (or think you have) the credentials to qualify as a Lead Teacher under the Child Development Division regulations, and you have a strong desire to make a profound difference not only for young children, but their families and the community at large, we urge you to apply!

Candidates must meet the standards set by the Vermont Early Childhood Regulations. If you are unsure about your qualifications please feel free to send us your resume and cover letter, and we will be happy to assist you in determining your qualifications. If you are working toward meeting qualifications for this position, please feel free to inquire as it may be possible to obtain a variance from the Child Development Division provided that you are willing to continue moving toward qualification through professional training. Interested persons should be hard working, dependable, team players, and be willing to advance academically as training is a state requirement.

This position is full-time, pays $18.00 - 22.00 per hour, and is paid bi-weekly on Wednesday.
