Teachers may choose to work year-round as a part of our NatureWorks summer camp program or select a 10-month employment contract. We offer medical/retirement benefits, child tuition discounts, financial support to attend Montessori conferences, and an opportunity to work at "Nebraska's First Wind & Solar Powered School" serving ages 18 months - 14 years.
