Classroom Assistant Position
Full time and part time positions available!
Thank you for your interest in Montessori Academy. We are not your typical preschool and nor is the job that the assistant does here!
Our classes are mixed ages. Children stay in the same classroom with a Montessori teacher from age three through kindergarten. Our teachers all hold a 4 year degree with a year of Montessori internship overseen by the American Montessori Society. Our assistants are an important part of what our teachers/school does.
Our mission is to help children develop to their potential during these foundation years. We strive to give each individual child what they need as they develop. Your job would be working collaboratively with the teacher.
Typically when an assistant comes on-board, they stay with us for two to five years. This is highly unusual in this field. We feel it is because our staff feel appreciated and supported. We have weekly assistant meetings to answer any questions/concerns you might have or listen to suggestions on how we might improve something we are doing. To show our appreciation for everyone's efforts, we do things throughout the year, for example: surprise gift cards, luncheons, bonuses, etc. Montessori provides a very positive environment for children and staff.
If you are interested in interviewing with us, please contact us at 812-479-1776 between 8 and 4:00.
