Tiny Green Trees is one of a small but growing number of nature based childcare centers in the United States and more specifically in Wisconsin. Being centrally located in the heart of urban Milwaukee makes us especially unique and a leader in this new approach to early childhood education. What sets us apart from the traditional and more institutional settings, is our overarching focus on introducing young children to the world of nature and incorporating age-appropriate environmental education methodologies into our curriculum.
Our new center is growing and we are in search of like minded early childhood professionals looking to learn and grow with us! Our competitive benefits and our refreshing approach to ECE may be the perfect career opportunity for you to either start a new path working with children or bring your years of experience to our centers.
Our Infant and Toddler Teachers place an emphasis on hands-on learning through play in natural environments while meeting each child’s individual needs. Our curriculum focuses on nature, in nature and for nature in a home like setting. We encourage and support social-emotional development and positive self-concepts through Lifeways methodology. Teachers create weekly lesson plans that promote skill development, the arts, dramatic play, and motor development, along with many sensory-rich experiences indoors and outdoors!
As a Lead Teacher, you will be given paid planning time every week to complete lesson plans and child portfolios. All supplies required for your classroom and lesson plans are furnished and paid for by Tiny Green Trees. Continuing education is extremely important to us and is always supported year round with many unique opportunities that align with our mission and vision.
