Age Group: Early Childhood 3-6

Description: Our school has one position open for a full time teaching assistant or interning teacher. We can also work with part time schedules or allowance for attending classes. Discovery Montessori is a fully licensed childcare center and qualifies for Early Achiever scholarships for the ECE degree or a Montessori Credential program in WA state. Teaching staff are required to be registered in MERIT and meet all qualifications for the position.

We offer a start date of June 20 for an assistant or co-teacher to join our teaching teams in our Summer Session. A co-teacher would have either an ECE degree or be enrolled in a Montessori course. An assisting teacher would have some education and experience in early childhood education and enroll for a Montessori assistant course. Internship would be facilitated by a supervising teacher.

Our full day schedule for children is 8:30-3:00 and will include gardening, outdoor play and outings to local parks. Our 2023-24 School year is September 5 to June 14 with a 10 month contract. Together these sessions make up a year round position. Compensation is $22 to $28 hourly commensurate with education and experience. Benefits include PNMA membership and professional development as well as our medical/dental/vision insurance.

Our support staff applies understanding of child development, guides the self-care skills of children, contributes to the curriculum and routines of the class, and the care of the classroom and school materials. The opportunity to assist a Montessori guide as a partner in the class and as a colleague of our school faculty can be a pathway to a teaching career and a Montessori credential.

Please send your resume and letter of interest by email attachment. You will be invited to visit the school. Details of the position will be provided to any applicant.

Discovery Montessori School does not discriminate against applicants or students on the basis of race, color, religion, national or ethnic origin or family structure or sexual orientation. Inherent in our mission is the inclusion and celebration of all people.
