Our centers are beautiful, intentional spaces full of charm and wonder. Would you like to join our team as a part-time or full-time Substitute Teacher?

A Part-Time Substitute works when they're available and when we need help covering for staff members who are sick or taking time off - a perfect role for someone looking for rewarding work but also plenty of time for other pursuits. 

A Full-time Substitute works a guaranteed number of hours per week, filling in for ill or vacationing coworkers. This role is perfect for someone who's adaptable, adventurous, and interested in working on a regular basis and with a variety of ages.

Great candidates for these roles have worked in a formal child care environment before and/or have taken college-level courses related to early childhood education. 

To work with us - or any licensed Oregon child care center - you must be enrolled in Oregon's Central Background Registry. Also, within your first 30 days of employment, you'll need to have or obtain an Oregon Food Handler's Card and Pediatric CPR/First Aid certification. You'll also need to complete Oregon's Recognizing and Reporting Child Abuse and Neglect and Introduction to Child Care Health & Safety courses.

These roles start at $14.00/hour, with opportunities for annual performance reviews and merit-based raises (up to $0.50/hour per review), bonuses, paid time off, and a 401(k) with a generous company match. For full-time employees (30+ hours/week), we also offer paid holidays and an annual Winter Break, plus health, vision, dental & life insurance coverage.
