Join our amazing team

As an outreach of Horizon Presbyterian Church, our mission is to partner with parents to grow the heart, mind, and spirit of the whole child in a Christ-centered environment. Over the past 20 years, hundreds of 2- to 6-year-olds have deeply benefited from our programs. Not only are children ready for school after attending our program, but they also experience God’s love. We are a small, intimate, loving, nurturing Christian program. Relationships are key to everything we do. We teach children to develop a love of learning through play using the High/Scope Curriculum. We also teach children to develop a love of God by exposing them to Christianity, Chapel, and lessons from the Bible.


Afternoon Preschool Teacher

We are currently looking to hire a part-time afternoon Stay-and-Play (SNP) Teacher. SNP offers before and after school extended care for children between 2 and 6 years of age. SNP is currently available after school from 2:30PM to 6:00PM daily. During SNP children engage in child-centered, free-choice play both in the classroom and outside.

The Lead SNP teacher is responsible for the planning and execution of an educational program in line with the Center’s educational goals and beliefs for children. The lead SNP teacher will provide developmentally appropriate early childhood education experiences with a variety of materials in all developmental domains. The lead SNP teacher is also responsible for classroom management, creation of lesson plans, and preparation of all lesson materials prior to class sessions. The SNP Lead Teacher should have knowledge of or be willing to learn about a child-centered learning environment. God’s Garden Preschool utilizes the High/Scope Curriculum, in which the focus is on active learning through play.

The SNP Lead Teacher will work cooperatively with all staff members in a warm, nurturing, family-oriented, Christian environment. The ideal candidate will have strong communication and leadership skills and will have previous experience leading a preschool classroom. The lead teacher must be comfortable with working and collaborating with others and delegating responsibilities as needed. The SNP Lead Teacher is also responsible for completion of 18 or more hours of training in early childhood education every 12 months and must have or be willing to obtain a Fingerprint Clearance Card, Infant & Adult CPR and First Aid, Negative TB Test, High School or College Diploma, and valid Driver’s License.

We are always looking to add to our list of substitute teachers for the Preschool. All substitutes need current First Aid and CPR Certifications, a valid Fingerprint Clearance Card, Negative TB Test, a High School Diploma, and 18 hours of Professional Development in Early Childhood Education each year.  Pay is competitive.
