We Are Looking to Welcome a New Member to Our Team!

Emerson has a dynamic employment opportunity for the 2024-2025 school year!

We are looking for a passionate and creative thinker to join our team of extraordinary educarers! This is a full time 35 hours/week position co teaching in two of our preschool programs.  Collaborative planning, development and documentation time is built in to the 35 hour week.

Our organization's functioning is comparable to the artistic process which is defined by Arts Action Research as, “...a unique combination of vision, creativity, intuition, and collaboration balanced with craft, technique, accountability, discipline, and use of time and resources.” This approach is appealing to those who appreciate a creative and dynamic organization that exercises collective leadership. The ways in which children are fostered at Emerson, so too are the adults working to sustain this model.

This allows Emerson to be the magical place it is.
