Forest Kindergarten Intern
(September-December 2018 & January-May 2019)
[Accepting letters of interest and resumes as of 4/4/18, please email us here.]
Wee Folk Forest Kindergarten is a unique, entirely outdoor preschool for children ages 3-6 and we are seeking a Forest Kindergarten Intern to join us during program hours on various days in the forest. (We can work with your schedule!) We are located on a farm in East Boulder, and interns must have reliable transportation to and from the forest.
We are seeking a candidate with a love of children, a keen interest in alternative models of education, with a dedication to the outdoors, as well as to enhancing their own naturalist sensibilities.
Interns will be assisting lead teachers at the school, supporting children, growing their naturalist knowledge base and understanding of early childhood education. Perfect for an education or environmental studies major interested in pursuing a career involving nature and children, or anyone who sees this as a part of their life's path.
Position is unpaid and requires a commitment for at least one semester. Please email us with your resume and letter of interest to apply.
