The Village Forest School is looking for enthusiastic teachers looking to become part of this exciting project.
Do you like the challenge of a new project? Are you flexible, positive and excited to work in a bilingual environment? Are you willing to bring your experience to form a Kindergarten with a unique vision in a beautiful location?
As the Asilo lead you will be central to establishing a strong daily rhythm that allows the children to engage in imaginative play. With experience in Waldorf kindergartens and knowledge of the Forest school ethos you will work to facilitate the children’s play and discovery. You won’t mind getting your boots on in all weathers and creating an engaging and magical outdoor space, sometimes going further afield and discovering what the seasons have to offer in walks around the valley.
Inside the Asilo yurt , with the help of your assistant, you will create an environment where children can engage in their own play and can also be part of a circle time where songs, rhymes and stories flow each day. Artistic activities, celebration of festivals and practical tasks are carried out with a sense of wonder and care, you will be a model worthy of imitation who invites the children to join you in your daily tasks.
You will be consistent when it comes to the safety of the children and create excellent habits around personal hygiene, especially at meal times.
Working with parents and the school leadership to create a harmonious and vibrant learning space will be important, as will be the willingness to learn Italian to a conversational level over time. You will also need to work well with colleagues to ensure children are prepared for transition into Elementary and to plan joint ventures.
