The Nature Preschool at Irvine Nature Center seeks compassionate, enthusiastic educators for part-time teacher and after care positions in the 2019-2020 school year. A love of nature, working with young children and a nurturing spirit are musts! Educators must be experienced working with preschool-age students (3-5 yrs. old) and passion for child-led hands-on learning. Our teachers serve as learning guides and help facilitate child-directed play and exploration, primarily outdoors. Developmentally appropriate activities include trail walks, games, songs, puppet shows, art provocations, science experiments, and live animal encounters. An integral component of learning is outdoor exploration - so you must be physically capable (and eager about) vigorous outdoor play in all weather! We explore Irvine’s 200 acres every day for at least 50% of our learning time with students. The teachers will work directly with students and co- teachers to establish a positive, fun, and safe environment that allows children to learn foundational skills while connecting with nature and one another.
