Blue Heron Montessori- ECE/ECEA needed for September 2021
We are a progressive Montessori environment for children ages 2.5-5 years old. We will function with 4 educators to 24 students, providing flexibility for staff to take time off and offering more one-on-one opportunities with the children.

We incorporate play-based learning experiences into our program to provide a dynamic and exciting environment. We utilize pedagogical narrations on a weekly basis to share the learning with our families. We value active community involvement and invite our educators to contribute their ideas and passions as much as possible.

We are looking for a candidate that will be in line with our values and is passionate about their work with children and families. The right candidate will also be interested in Montessori, and open to learning about the materials and philosophies. Educators are encouraged to plan experiences and create materials for the children to work with. This position will be permanent and full-time, as we are looking for a long-term educator who we can welcome into our community.
