The teacher will facilitate each child's development in the core competencies of the program.
The ideal candidate for this role is a leader and innovator in the field of outdoor education. You have worked with the primary grades in an outdoor education setting and also have an understanding of their growth and development needs. You have experience working in a classroom setting with the Ontario curriculum. You are excited to build relationships with each child and to guide them in their learning and growth. You believe in an alternative educational model for children and can communicate it's benefits to stakeholders.
Learning outcomes include:
In a medium size class ratio of 2:20. The teachers will work together while reporting to the director(s) and will follow the Hundred Acre Wood School Calendar.
If you are an enthusiastic educator who believes in the transformative power of nature-based, child-led learning, we invite you to apply to join our dynamic forest school community at Hundred Acre Wood. Together, let's inspire a lifelong love of learning in the heart of nature!
