Build a brighter future for all children.
Teaching is more than a job. It’s an opportunity to foster curiosity, creativity, and compassion in children—all while helping them develop a lifelong love of learning. Primrose School of Thornton is an accredited private preschool that provides a premier educational childcare experience. We offer year-round programs for children from infant through private kindergarten.
As an Assistant Teacher, you’ll help to create a fun, safe environment for little ones as they explore and learn through purposeful play that nurtures their social, emotional, cognitive, creative and physical development.
At Primrose School of Thornton you bring the passion, and we’ll give you all the tools and training to be successful.
Our Balanced Learning® approach was developed with early learning experts. It provides clear daily plans so you can focus your time in the classroom on forming connections with the children—and spend your time outside of school focused on yourself.
Classrooms come fully stocked with everything you need, and our supportive Leadership Team works every day to create a safe, healthy environment and a culture where all children and team members can thrive.
And if that’s not enough, just wait until you help a child learn something new and see their face light up with excitement.
