One Fifty Parker Avenue School is looking for:

  1. Part-time AM Teacher for the 19/20 school year

2. ”On-call” Substitute Teachers

One Fifty Parker Avenue School is a cozy, well-loved non-profit preschool nestled in the Laurel Heights neighborhood of San Francisco. Since 1954, we have been a play-based school that honors and values each child’s interests and their right to hands-on learning.  We view each and every child as capable and competent and help to foster a lifelong love of learning and an inner confidence through our unique approach to teaching. We celebrate diversity in our community and are happy to offer Tuition Assistance to qualifying families.

At Parker School, we offer a small, homelike setting where children can explore freely, spread their wings, and discover who they are and what it means to be a part of a larger community. We believe children learn best and make sense of the world around them when given time to play. Our teachers are skilled play facilitators, guiding children through their social interactions and peer relationships to help build their confidence, language skills, and empathy. Our curriculum is grounded in social-emotional development and by the end of their time at Parker School, children have learned how to express themselves, their ideas, and their feelings. With gentle guidance, each child builds their ability to emotionally self-regulate in our safe and nurturing classrooms.

Teachers provide plenty of opportunities for inquiry and hands-on learning. Our emergent, developmentally-appropriate curriculum stems from the children’s interests. Projects and activities have the flexibility to take new shape as teachers become learners alongside the children. Through these projects, children ask questions and express themselves through language, art, dance, writing, dramatic play, and building. They problem-solve, test theories, and learn to persevere.
