Employment Opportunities:

Extended Hours Assistant

This is a very part time opening in our Extended Hours (after school) program.  We are looking for a person who can work Monday – Friday from 3:00 – 5:30.  You will work with an experienced Montessori teacher serving students from the ages of 3-12.  Our Extended Hours program is consistent with our Montessori classrooms; however being an after school program, it is more open ended and does not include Montessori materials.

We prefer someone with an understanding of the Montessori approach but will train you if you are new to the field.  We place a particular emphasis on effective communication. A love for animals and a sense of humor is always a plus. We are a small school located in southeastern CT on 6 acres of fields and wetlands. Children and staff take care of our chickens & llamas.
