    Montessori Preschool Teacher/Assistant Director

    Children's Community School

    1175 Cox Dr, Mount Horeb, WI 53572

    Toddler / Preschool / 4K

    Job Description

    $1,000 sign-on bonus. 

    We’re looking to hire a full or part-time teacher with an AMS Montessori credential as a preschool teacher/assistant director to complete our CCS family. The person who fills this position would be teaching alongside veteran teachers in a mixed-age preschool classroom as well as learning administrative duties with potential advancement opportunities to Director in the future. Our benefits include childcare discounts, paid time off, paid holidays, insurance for eligible employees, and paid continuing education.

    Maria Montessori started an education transformation. In Mount Horeb, we've been joyfully teaching the Montessori Method at Children's Community School for the past 45 years. We know our community's future leaders, visionaries, and problem-solvers are already here: we have the privilege of teaching them every day.

    In 2023, we opened the doors to a brand new school with bright beautiful classrooms, natural outdoor play areas, and an emphasis on sustainability. We are particularly proud of our solar energy net zero status and teaching our students how to care for their environment and community. 

    Are you looking for a teaching position that comes with steadfast parent support? Preschool eventually ends for our young learners, but many of our parents choose to stay for decades as volunteers. Prefer to work with a partner? Our school embraces a team-teaching model. Do you value schools that emphasize nature, art, and practical life skills? Perfect, we do, too.

    Our director, teaching staff, and Board of Directors are closely collaborating on staffing needs for our next chapter. If you are an enthusiastic teacher with a passion for child-centered education, we’d love to meet you!
