Our school seeks educators with knowledge of child-directed learning and educator documentation. We insist that our educators are passionate, intellectually curious, self-motivated and self-directed learners. Being open to learning new ways of being with children is an important quality the school seeks. We also see integrity, a desire to work closely with families, love of and respect for children, and the ability to observe and listen mindfully as essential characteristics for our teachers. Please be someone who is self-reflective and willing to collaborate with other teachers, parents, children and the community. A strong knowledge of child development is desired. We also seek educators who have a genuine interest in one particular area of education, community-building or children/families that they would like to further develop. Our school supports teachers in their career endeavors both within the school as well as out in the community.
WLC is a workplace that deeply values its employees, offers opportunities for continued learning and professional development, creates an environment that respects the ideas of adults and allows a space for leadership opportunities and professional growth for all its teachers.

In addition to these benefits, our school offers competitive salaries.
