Established in 1980, the beautiful seven-acre Sunrise campus is in the Cowichan Valley, near Duncan BC.  Sunrise is a full AWSNA member school and a Group One independent school under the BC Ministry of Education with a mission to educate and inspire students to reach their full potential through a rich and artistic Waldorf curriculum.    


Sunrise Waldorf School is currently accepting applications for a Parent and Child Program Facilitator for the 23/24 school year.  Sunrise is looking to run the 10-series program in both the Fall and the Spring.  The Parent and Child Program runs 2.5 hours a week, on the weekend, with additional preparation and clean up time. The role will include coordinating with the Admissions Director and the preschool teachers regarding sharing space, and with registrations.  Participant’s parents stay for the entirety of the program.


The ideal candidate will have completed their Early Childhood Waldorf Teacher Training, have significant experience leading classes in Early Childhood in a Waldorf school, and have successfully demonstrated the ability to support parents and caregivers to develop an understanding of the methods used in Waldorf early childhood education.  Sunrise seeks a caring and dynamic instructor with positive approach, leadership skills, and strong interpersonal, communication and organizational skills. This role is mostly independent but there may be some opportunities to be involved in faculty processes.


Sunrise is an equal opportunity employer and seeks applications from all qualified persons without regard to race, gender, colour, religion, national origin, ancestry, age, marital status, sexual orientation, and any other status protected by law.  Sunrise provides equal opportunities in employment, promotion, wages, benefits and other terms and conditions of employment.
