Cambridge Montessori School is seeking a part-time (25 hours minimum/week) Toddler Support Teacher. Applicants must have previous experience working with young children. EEC certification or coursework is desirable. Montessori school experience is preferred, but not required.

This teacher will be expected to support the smooth daily routines, assist with teacher breaks and to step in as a substitute should a teacher be absent. This will be for the Toddler “pod,” which consists of 12-13 total students, ages 21 months to 3.5 years old, in two classrooms. The Toddler Support Teacher will work under the guidance of the credentialed lead teachers and the Classroom Assistants. There may also be times that the Toddler Support Teacher would need to help with administrative tasks within the pod or with making curriculum materials for remote learners at the Primary level.

We seek flexible, imaginative, creative teachers who can effectively plan and problem solve with a team. The ability to understand and adapt to situations is key, as is a willingness to provide assistance where needed. We expect our faculty to be involved and active in the school community. A confident, professional demeanor and a strong desire to collaborate and communicate effectively are important characteristics. Above all, strong respect for and love of children is essential to function effectively in this child-centered environment.

This position will be paid hourly, based on experience, while school is in session for in-person learning. The school offers a competitive benefits package for employees who work 25 hours or more a week.

Candidates should send a letter, personal statement, and resume to:
