Attention Spanish speakers, passionate educators, and outdoor enthusiasts! Aventuras Forest School is hiring!

We're a small educational organization that is rethinking early childhood education from the ground up (literally). Aventuras is the first language-immersion forest preschool in Southern California. Led by a Harvard-trained education researcher, our motto is simple: learn like a human. Our 100% outdoor school features an emergent curriculum situated in a gorgeous natural setting.

Summary

Aventuras serves ages 3 to 6, and is strongly informed by the forest school model. If you've ever tried to cartwheel across a meadow or catch a frog in a stream, or dreamed of creating the ideal setting for a young child to explore their inner and outer worlds, we want to hear from you!

The ideal candidate will have experience working with young children, and a love of the outdoors. Native-level fluency in Spanish is required and must be specified in your application for consideration. Candidates must also be comfortable carrying a small child or pulling a supply wagon short distances over uneven ground, and providing potty assistance to our little ones.

  • Naturalist/outdoor education/survivalist training/experience a plus
  • Associate's or bachelor's degree in a relevant field a plus
  • Summer camp counseling experience a plus
  • Ukulele/guitar/flute skills a plus
  • Movement/voice/performing arts/visual arts/yoga background a plus

Working hours are M-F 8:30am-1:30pm, plus Friday 2:30-5:30 pm, with additional (flexible) hours potentially available for planning/administration and opportunities for revenue-sharing in supplemental programs like our Parent & Me classes.

Start date: 7/12 or 8/9/2024

Salary: $21/hour

Benefits:

  • 5 weeks paid vacation, 3 weeks unpaid summer break, all major paid holidays
  • One-on-one mentorship sessions with our in-house advisor
  • Training/professional development/tuition offerings and stipends
  • A choice of benefits to fit your needs such as medical/dental/vision insurance, retirement plans, and employee assistance programs
  • MacBook Air laptop and iPhone 12mini with unlimited data
  • Full membership with unlimited access to Aventuras HQ: The Preserve LA - where you can enjoy complimentary seminars, wellness classes (yoga, reiki, meditation, dance & more), happy hours, cultural events, all in a gorgeous outdoor office setting built around LA’s largest urban forest.
