Early Childhood Educator

SEED ECS At Temple Beth Am   Seattle, WA   Full-time     Education
Posted on July 29, 2022

We are a year-round, joyful, collaborative workplace with benefits, generous paid time off, and an opportunity to grow and work with amazing children and families. We can’t wait to meet you to join our faculty in co-creating and providing a nurturing, play-based learning environment, grounded in Jewish Values. We are looking for a full time infant teacher and part- and full-time support teachers!

We are Reggio inspired, play- and relationship-based. We believe in, “Nothing without Joy” and hope that children, families and faculty alike will find joy and growth in this environment. In fact, over the years some of our teachers have even had the fortune of studying the Reggio Emilia early childhood approach in the Italian Municipality as well as here in the US!  We believe in, and invest in professional development.

We collaborate as a faculty team, partnering with children as we support their natural curiosity, growth and development. Teachers work in co-teaching teams with additional support. Teachers have paid planning time, regular reflective practice meetings and time to collaborate with age group colleagues.

We are looking for educators who love to engage with children, think deeply with colleagues, learn and grow, exercise creativity and actively participate in the workplace community.

We are an equal-opportunity employer that values diversity, and we highly encourage BIPOC and LGBTQIA+ individuals to apply.

Here are just some of the ways that we take care of our employees: we offer highly competitive wages, ongoing professional development as well as support for attending professional development conferences and workshops, medical/dental/vision insurance, access to scholarships for continuing education/ degree completion, generous paid time off, SEED tuition discounts, and retirement plan contributions.


Teachers who have a commitment to reflective work with children; an eagerness to collaborate with co-teachers; a drive to grow as professionals; a disposition towards research and inquiry; experience designing curriculum responsive to children’s emerging interests; familiarity with emergent curriculum, Reggio practice, and anti-bias approaches; community enrichment/volunteer experience; and a long-term commitment to early learning are highly sought.

We are located in the Wedgwood/Ravenna neighborhood.

Salary: $18-$24 an hour
