We are so excited to announce that we are currently hiring for a lead teaching position. This is a wonderful resume-building opportunity to join the staff of Seattle’s first entirely outdoor preschool, a nationally renowned program at the University of Washington. We are looking for teaching candidates who are enthusiastic, flexible and committed to our mission of fostering equity in early childhood education and a strong community through connection to the natural world.
Tucked within the University of Washington Botanic Gardens is the Fiddleheads Forest School, an entirely outdoor preschool. At Fiddleheads, we aim to foster a sense of wonder, to guide rather than compel, and to provide room for possibility. Unlike traditional programs, at the Forest School our classroom grows and changes along with its students. This dynamic environment offers an unparalleled setting for the development of self-regulation and fundamental appreciation for the natural world.
