Careers at SEED

Early Childhood Educator

We seek warm, reflective, collaborative, fun-loving early childhood educators to join our faculty in co-creating and providing a nurturing, play-based learning environment, grounded in Jewish values. We are looking for part- and full-time support and full-time lead teachers to start this summer!

Our approach is Reggio inspired, play-based and relationship-based. We believe in, "Nothing without Joy" and hope that children, families and faculty alike will find joy and growth in this environment.

We collaborate as a faculty team, partnering with children as we support their natural curiosity, growth and development. Teachers work in co-teaching teams with additional support. Teachers have paid planning time, regular reflective practice meetings and time to collaborate with age group colleagues.

We are looking for educators who love to engage with children, think deeply with colleagues, learn and grow as educators, exercise creativity and actively participate in the workplace community.

We offer highly competitive wages, ongoing professional development as well as support for attending professional development conferences and workshops, medical/dental/vision insurance, access to scholarships for continuing education/ degree completion, generous paid time off, and retirement plan contributions.

We are an equal-opportunity employer that values diversity, and we encourage BIPOC and LGBTQIA+ individuals to apply.

Qualifications:

The most competitive candidates will have 1+ year early childhood teaching experience and at least some formal education in Early Childhood Education. Teachers who have a commitment to reflective work with children; an eagerness to collaborate with co-teachers; a drive to grow as professionals; a disposition towards research and inquiry; experience designing curriculum responsive to children's emerging interests; familiarity with emergent curriculum, Reggio practice, and anti-bias approaches; community enrichment/volunteer experience; and a long-term commitment to early learning are highly sought.

We are located in the Wedgwood/Ravenna neighborhood, just North of the main UW campus.
