Substitute Teachers and Substitute Assistant Teachers

We are currently scheduling interviews for on-call substitute teachers and assistant teachers. Substitutes work a variety of hours, covering classrooms when our regular staff are absent. Some hours are available in advance (when regular staff have planned absences), and some hours are available on a day-by-day basis (when regular staff have unplanned absences). Because this does not require committing to a set schedule, this is an excellent opportunity for students, and those with other part-time or substitute positions. The center is open Monday through Friday, 6:30 am to 6:00 pm. This is a temporary, need-based position that has the potential to move into a permanent part or full-time position as opportunities become available. Applicants must be at least 18 years of age, have a minimum of 6 months of experience working with children in a supervised setting, and have completed at least 6 semester credits in education or child development-related classes from a post-secondary institution.
