Depending on experience and interest, this teacher will work with children age 2 or 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.

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.
