Careers at Waldorf School of Bend
Thank you for your interest in the Waldorf School of Bend!
New Nursery School Program Seeking Qualified Teachers – The Waldorf School of Bend is GROWING! This past summer we expanded our space and now it is time to expand our programming. Central Oregon is currently experiencing a need for quality care for 2 year old children.
As a school and supported by our dedicated team of early childhood teachers we have decided to meet this need by creating a space in our school for 2 year old children on up. We will be creating a home away from home environment for the two year old child, supporting them as they transition from the care of their parents to the care of the teacher.
The Nursery program will begin in January and we need teachers who will support us by bringing this program into fruition. This will include creating a beautiful space, creating a supportive rhythm which offers a secure, healthy, and nurturing environment for children with weekly and seasonal rhythms. The weekly rhythm will include an age appropriate circle time, story, creative and active play, and time for nourishment. We are looking for several individuals dedicated to Waldorf education, with love and enthusiasm for teaching.
We value individuals who have confidence in representing Waldorf education to the broader community, and who will hold dedication to the whole school. Successful applicants will intuitively engage into this honorable work and create an educational environment that is aligned with our early childhood ethos and pedagogy.
We are a Certified Childcare Center and are a WECAN Member School.
We require all teachers to have and maintain an ORO account and be registered in the Central Background Registry.
Additional training include but are not limited to:
-Recognizing and Reporting Child Abuse and Neglect
-Introduction to Childcare Health and Safety
-Food Handlers and CPR/First Aid
Come join our endeavors in Central Oregon!

At the Waldorf School of Bend, education is a powerful vehicle for social change. Thus, core academic subjects are taught to ignite the imagination of students and teachers in order to help foster pragmatic and inspired solutions to the ever-growing challenges of our time. The rigorous academic curriculum allows students to move forward with a sense of strong social consciousness, strong academic skills, and a vibrant individuality to create their own futures. A strong reverence for nature and the desire to nurture the earth are primary foundations on which school practices are based.
We are an AWSNA Associate school, who is experiencing energetic and healthy growth in beautiful Bend, Oregon. As a WECAN Associate member school, we operate an Early Childhood Program (PreK, Mixed-aged Kindergarten and Kindergarten classes) serving children ages 3-6, a stand-alone Grades program (1st– 6th) and Jr. High program (7th & 8th). We are unique in that we operate a Jr. High to help students prepare for school outside of Waldorf as currently there are no Waldorf high school options in
Central Oregon. Salary plus benefits including tuition remission, mentoring program, and financial support for professional development.
