The Nature School is hiring substitute teachers for the 2022-2024 and 2023-2024 Taproots school years. Subs may be scheduled in advance for pre-scheduled teacher absences, or called in on short notice for unexpected teacher absences.
Subs must be able to pass a background check and have childcare or teaching experience. Must be comfortable being outside for 4 hours at a time in all weather.
Pay is $20/hr. If you have a child enrolled in The Nature School, you will receive two days of free tuition for every day you sub.
Are you looking for a preschool tuition exchange? Do you want to be involved in your child's preschool class? Taproots (The Nature School's preschool/pre-k class) has an opportunity for a parent to support the class with tasks such as keeping us supplied with library books, gathering information on current curriculum topics, and other miscellaneous tasks in support of the class. The Parent Assistant does NOT need to be available during the class day, so this could be a fit for a working parent.
The Parent Assistant will receive a tuition discount for every month they are available to help.
