Infant & Toddler Teachers
At Sophia’s Hearth, we create a warm, homelike environment where the focus is on attentive personal caregiving with every child. Our curriculum is based on self-initiated movement, development and play in thoughtfully designed indoor and outdoor spaces. Much of each day, is spent outdoors in our yards and woods. Children embrace the natural world in every season.
Sophia’s Hearth is an equal opportunity employer. We encourage people of all backgrounds to join us as we change the world one child at a time.

About our Program
The right teacher for our program has a sincere desire to deepen their own teaching practice and find meaning in their work. We offer healthy all-natural food for breaks and lunches for all children, which teachers are welcome to share. Our goal is to create an environment steeped in nature, the arts and imitation as the basis for learning.
Full time and part time, 48-week positions are available in the infant and toddler classrooms. Substitute teachers are always needed. We require a minimum of three credits in Early Childhood or Elementary Education but candidates with lead teacher qualifications will be given priority.
