Bilingual Teacher Position 

New Horizons Cooperative Preschool is looking for a full-time bilingual early childhood education (ECE) teacher to join our team of teachers.

We are looking for a candidate who is bilingual Spanish/English with preference for a native Spanish-speaker to teach at our bilingual, play-based, cooperative preschool. Our ideal candidate is community-minded, interested in fostering cross-cultural and cross-linguistic connections, able to collaborate well with other teachers, creative, and approaches education from a Constructivist, child-lead perspective.


 The position is full-time (8:00 am- 4:15 pm), teaching 3 part-time classes. Each of our three classes (MWF morning, T-Th morning, and T-F afternoon) has a maximum of sixteen 3-6 year old students taught by 3 bilingual teachers (50% of children speak Spanish as their first or only language). This position will work with our collaborative team with leadership from our director. Our seasonal curriculum is integrated into all aspects of the school, from the literacy session in the morning, to circle time, to small group activities. Though we use the curriculum as a jumping off point, we also allow flexibility for integrating student ideas and interests.


Our truly unique model brings families from different backgrounds together into a community that supports our children and each other.  Everyone who visits our school, from evaluators to parents to other preschool directors, appreciates the inclusive environment we've built at New Horizons.
