Careers

Interested in being part of our team?

At Fern Hill we we want to know where your interests lie! On a timetable rotation similar to high schools, our staff teach one or two subjects across a variety of grades. When we go to the market, we are looking for a Math teacher or a Geography teacher rather than a grade generalist. When you apply to us, tell us about the subjects that are your passion and your experience in and out of the classroom in these subjects.

We require that applicants have a degree in Education and a current Ontario Teaching Certificate and/or their Early Childhood Education Certificate (Preschool and JK only).
