Unique opportunity to join our dynamic team of professional, experienced, passionate teachers! A passion for learning about nature education and an excitement to explore the outdoors with children is a ​must​. We believe ​children learn best through play. They flex their social/emotional muscles as they engage with their peers and teachers. We focus on giving children opportunities to practice conflict resolution, cooperation and empathy. Framingham Centre Nursery School believes in the importance of providing children opportunities to explore and investigate the natural world around them. We are located next to 5 acres of woodlands and have the unique opportunity to explore wetlands, ponds, and meadows.

Job Description
We are looking for early childhood teachers for our nature-based preschool classroom ​Monday through Friday, 8 hour shifts​. Each classroom at FCNS will have their own dedicated outdoor classroom space. We believe in the importance of providing children extended outside time in nature to explore, investigate, and grow their curiosity about the world around them. Classroom teachers guide children in these experiences using emergent, play-based investigations. Our teachers work collaboratively on teaching teams with low teacher to student ratios to help to guide their classroom in developmentally appropriate, nature-based learning experiences.
