Magnolia is a forest preschool that follows the lead of the child. Our school is run on the belief that children are drawn to learning, to experiences, and to each other. The forest has always been a place of wonder for children ? a place to explore, assert their independence, take risks, and overcome fears. At Magnolia, we aim to inspire curiosity, possibilities, imagination, contemplation, and exploration in a setting where children are free to express their interests, their needs, and their passions. At Magnolia, our students? needs are paramount, but our role is not simply a supporting role, it is an active, guiding role. Our goal is to be co-constructing knowledge that guides and supports the work in progress that is each child?s cognitive development.
Teachers aim to promote the holistic development of all children, fostering resilient, confident, independent and creative learners. Teachers will support Magnolia's play-based forest school curriculum. They will ensure student safety and follow site director?s risk assessments for all experiences in the forest. We expect teachers to carry supplies in and out of the forest each day, carry a small child if needed, and navigate uneven terrain. Our school operates 100% outside through rainy and cold weather. Staff must dress adequately to stay warm and dry, including waterproof footwear. Student interests drive the learning, and staff must be able to see the value of play-based learning.
We are looking to hire a diverse team of people who can support our work culture of equity and inclusion.
