Sandbox Playschool is a small community of children, families, and educators on the Westside of Olympia. We are a licensed family child care home. We serve children ages 3-5, with a ratio of 2 teachers:7 children. Our program is mostly outdoors, including covered spaces and large areas for play. We go inside for bathroom use, rest time, and/or extreme weather.

We are currently seeking a long-term substitute Lead Teacher who is creative, intentional, passionate, and reflective in their work with children and families. The ideal candidate would be committed to reflective work with children, and excited to collaborate with co-teachers and engage in ongoing professional development and growth. Familiarity with emergent curriculum, Reggio practice, and anti-bias education approaches valued.

We are looking for a substitute for our Lead Teacher as she takes maternity leave for the full months of January-April 2023. Ideally, this person would also be able to serve as an on-call substitute for our Lead Teacher and Assistant Teacher from now until end of December, and after she returns from maternity leave. This position may also continue as a part time position after our Lead Teacher returns from maternity leave, and is subject to negotiation

The schedule would be 36 hours/wk. 8.5 hours a day M-Th with a 30 minute lunch and 4 hours of planning time on Friday. Planning time is used for team meeting, family conferences, curriculum development, and maintaining the school environment.

The full time start date is January 2nd, 2023. Ideally, you would start part-time, 12 hours/wk starting December 5th, 2022, to get familiar with the program, school, and the children, and create an easeful transition.

The pay rate is $20/hr in 2022. In 2023 the rate will get a COL adjustment.
