Job Type : Full Time



Are you someone who enjoys working with varying ages of children from birth to 5 years of age? Perhaps you're just beginning your career in Early Education? Maybe you want to explore the opportunities that working with different age groups brings? It could be that you're someone who simply enjoys having variety in their schedule? If so, Frog&Toad Child Care&Learning Center might be the Early Care and Education Program that is right for you to explore!

Candidates must be at least 18 years of age, have a minimum of a high school diploma/GED, and meet the expectations of the Northern Lights Career Development Center Level 1 in order to qualify as a Teaching Assistant as stated in the Vermont Early Childhood Regulations. Interested persons should be hard working, dependable, team players, and be willing to advance academically, as training is a state requirement. IF YOU ARE UNSURE OF YOUR QUALIFICATIONS WE ENCOURAGE YOU TO APPLY ANYWAY! WE CAN HELP YOU TO UNDERSTAND THE PROCESS, AND FOR CANDIDATES THAT SHOW GREAT POTENTIAL, WE CAN APPLY FOR VARIANCES FROM THE CHILD DEVELOPMENT DIVISION!

This full-time position pays $19.00 - $20.00 per hour based on education/training, and is paid bi-weekly on Wednesday.


All of our teaching staff are responsible for upholding state and school policies as well as maintaining classroom/school cleanliness and organization. Assistant Teachers help with delivering age appropriate curriculum as directed from their Lead Teacher, and contribute to the development of age-appropriate curriculum as they are ready or interested. Assistant Teachers will have some communication with parents about their children during drop off and pick up times, and so a professional and cheerful disposition is a must. And of course, all teachers are responsible for providing loving care to the children in our school!

The Float Teacher position is a bit unique in that it also includes completing tasks outside of classrooms that ensure that our school as a whole functions smoothly, and continues to be clean, organized, and inviting for children and families. A teacher in this position will also assist with the breaking of other teaching staff, as well as assisting in classrooms when Lead Teachers need to take time away for curriculum planning and/or assessments.
