Xplor Education

Substitute Montessori Preschool Teacher, 12 weeks - 6 years (25 hours guaranteed)

Part-Time in Hawthorne, CA - Entry Level - Discovery - $17.00 - $18.00 / hr

Inspire the next generation of innovators.

Become part of Discovery, a vibrant, high-quality Montessori community for children aged 10 weeks to 6 years.

The Opportunity

We are conducting a search for substitute teachers to support our infant, toddler, and preschool/kindergarten programs. Working under the direction of the Head of School, you will help support classrooms when other staff are out sick or on vacation. Montessori education or experience is not required; we will provide training as part of our orientation and on-boarding program.

This is an entry-level opportunity and is designed for early childhood educators who are starting their careers or those who prefer the flexibility of a less-than-full-time position. The schedule is varied with 25 hours a week guaranteed. We generally recruit from within, so the best substitute teachers may be invited to join us on a part- or full-time basis when such opportunities become available.

Do you want to be part of a one-of-a-kind school community that is inspiring the next generation of innovators? Are you experienced working with children ages 0 – 6? Have you completed at least 12 college-level early childhood education credits (including at least three credits in infant/toddler care and development) and are you trained in CPR and first aid? If so, we will reward your commitment and make you feel valued with:

  • Competitive compensation -- $17 - $18 per hour to start
  • On-going training and professional development

About Discovery

Discovery is a collaboration between Xplor Education and a leading Southern California aerospace company to form an innovative Montessori community for children of our collaborator’s employees. While their parents develop the breakthroughs that are revolutionizing space exploration, their children will grow into the next generation of innovators in a way that only authentic Montessori can provide.

Discovery’s beautiful facility is located in Hawthorne, California, near the intersection of Crenshaw Boulevard and El Segundo Boulevard.
