Love spending time in nature, making mud pies, storytelling, discovering insects? Do you value the role of teacher/researcher as a support to children and families?
We are looking for energetic, caring, highly-qualified teachers.
About our program:
At Home in Nature Outdoor Programs, Inc. offers a nature school that is an all outdoor early childhood program. Forest Schools are an innovative approach to play-based learning in nature’s classroom. Using local green spaces, children’s whole beings are engaged in the natural inquiry of their surrounding environment, developing a healthy respect for themselves, one another and nature.
Our program model is based on philosophies of emergent curriculum, child-directed, teacher supported play and learning. Our curriculum is based on the teachings of Jon Young, Joseph Cornell, Rachel Carson, and others. At Home in Nature uses best practices in early childhood education, including a deep respect for family and community through building relationships and supporting social/emotional growth.
Our program is based in San Diego.
We believe that children are thoughtful, capable and joyous learners. During our programs, children feel safe, respected and cherished while experiencing freedom, creativity and expanding their potential.
