Preschool Assistant Teacher
Are you passionate about helping children under the age of 6 years old? Have you been looking for a preschool where you can grow and develop your career? If so, join us in our mission to spread Montessori education to children around the world!
We are hiring enthusiastic and adaptable teachers who are interested in learning more about early childhood education for the new Montessori school we are bringing to the River North/Chicago, IL area!
In this Assistant Guide role, you will support our Lead Guides in guiding children to be more independent and confident in their abilities. This is a great opportunity to start your career in Montessori, and early childhood education more generally, as many of our Assistant Guides ultimately grow to take on Lead Guide roles over time, thanks to our MACTE-accredited Montessori training program.
This position is a full-time role with great benefits including health, dental, and vision insurance, a 401K, a competitive rate of pay, and a generous 75% tuition discount for up to two children at our school.
We would love to talk to you if you:
- Are familiar with the development of young children
- Have strong interpersonal skills and a customer-service oriented mindset
- Are willing to grow and learn
- Have a valid negative TB test (in the last 12 months) or are willing to take prior to your state date
- Have a valid CPR certification or are willing to become certified prior to start date
