Our staff becomes like a family member as we serve the needs of our students and parents in four classrooms, one for Infants, one for Toddlers and two for 3-6 year old children. Currently, we are seeking an Infant-Toddler teacher and Teacher’s Assistant with good people skills who value working as part of a close-knit school.
Candidates for Infant-Toddler teacher must have a grounding in Montessori philosophy and have, or be working toward an AMS certification. BS / BA degree is required with at least 18 hours of early childhood education. Compensation is commensurate with experience. Disability insurance is offered. If a candidate has 21+ hours of early child childhood education and is organized with computer skills, there is a Teacher-Assistant Head of School position for a higher salary.
For the Teacher’s Assistant position, the school will pay for Montessori certification for the right candidate. Early childhood education is a plus.
Positions open immediately, as the school is also planning an expansion in nearby Niles in the Fall of 2018.
