Age Group: 0-6
Description: We are Haggard Childcare Resources (https://www.haggardchildcare.com) and we have several 0-5 Early Learning and Child Care Centers in Seattle. Most of our schools use the Montessori theory of education and RIE in some of our infant rooms. We are looking for talented and joyful people who have experience as teachers and/or as office support to a school.
Our schools are happy and busy places, where we put the needs of children first, while also realizing that happy teachers make for happy children. We have well established programs that value passionate learning, engaging outdoor spaces, and continually challenging ourselves with new approaches to social/emotional learning and anti-racist, anti-bias work. We place great importance on people taking leadership roles in whatever their job title is while also recognizing the importance of collaboration to maintain the integrity of our communities.
We are looking for candidates to be an Interim Director at our UW Children's Center at Portage Bay. Preference will be given to people who have been teachers themselves, understand early learning (especially Montessori), or perhaps someone with proven office experience in a school setting.
We have remained open in these times of COVID and follow all Seattle-King County Public Health guidelines, as well as work with our partners at the University of Washington to maintain safe spaces for our staff and families. We do require that all our staff have the COVID-19 vaccination unless they have a medical or religious exemption.
We offer competitive pay, great benefits (medical, dental, and vision), 401K with the potential for matching, discounted bus passes, paid parking, paid time off, and access to many different continuing educational opportunities. Best benefit? You'll work for a company that cares about you as a person and your growth in this field.
To be considered for this position, please submit a cover letter and resume. Thank you!
