Thank you for your interest in employment opportunities with Childpeace Montessori School.
It takes a whole community to keep us running each day. Today, Childpeace has a staff of 75. More than half of our staff have worked at the school for five or more years and nearly one-third for ten years or more.
Childpeace teachers are selected for their professional talents and consistent and loving concern for the children in their care. Constant and ongoing observation by the guide is the bedrock of our program. All Childpeace guides are fully trained and AMI-certified and most also hold masters degrees in education. In addition, elementary and middle school students have access to specialists in many fields, including Spanish language, physical education, arts education, individual music instruction and dance.
Substitutes play a critical role in maintaining the continuity of the classroom experience. We are always interested in recruiting substitutes for our Toddler Community, Children’s House, Elementary and Middle School programs.
Childpeace is committed to equity and justice. We value the diversity of our families, students and staff. We believe these values are essential to student success. Childpeace does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national or ethnic origin, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion, physical or mental ability, or any other status protected under local, state, or federal laws in the admission of otherwise qualified students or in the administration of its educational policies or programs, hiring or employment practices.
Childpeace is easily accessed by bike and public transportation. We support our staff with a competitive salary structure and benefits package, a program rooted in AMI standards, a commitment to professional development, beautiful and well-equipped classroom environments, strong administrative support, and a rich, working community of Montessori professionals.
