Description, Responsibilities, & Duties

Turning Sun Schools is hiring Lead, Classroom, and Substitute Educators to work with students age 3 months – 5 years. We have openings at each of our 4 locations starting now, Summer, and August. TSS promotes from within so that all staff have opportunities for advancement and growth, and even the possibility to open their own school.

Minimum Qualifications/Requirements

Education and experience are a plus, but not a requirement because all of our staff progress through Turning Sun’s Professional Development Program. We seek candidates who possess the things we cannot teach: (1) “character” which aligns with our special values and (2) the natural ability to connect with children. New employees will also need CPR/First Aid certification (which we will provide and fund) and a comprehensive background check (which we can guide you through).

Salary & Benefits

Staff are typically salaried which includes being paid for the 40-45 weekdays we are closed each year (we follow public school schedules). Full time staff are eligible for health insurance benefits and optional retirement plan. Full time staff can work 8-4, 9-5, or 10-6 depending on location. Part time and Substitute Educator positions also offer flexible hours and schedule based on need between 8-6 Mon-Fri year round.

Turning Sun is the school you always wished you could have attended. Our approach is play-based and inspired by the Reggio Emilia philosophy.

We are a non-religious, open and affirming community which welcomes families and staff regardless of gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, race, creed, or ethnicity.
