Join Our Classroom

Fidalgo Nature School is seeking Substitute Teachers for our preschool program. We are looking for teachers to work with 3-6-year-olds Monday to Friday between 8:45 am and 1:15 pm. 

At Fidalgo Nature School, we feel that connection to nature is an integral part of an enriching childhood and encourages compassion, respect and thoughtfulness. The outdoor classroom presents an engaging, dynamic environment for play and our teachers help develop a sense of belonging in nature, make friends, learn to play with kindness, adapt to change while remaining true to themselves, and demonstrate a willingness to meet expectations for the greater good of the community. You would work in a 6:1 teacher/student ratio and be entirely outdoors for the school year, with exceptions to inclement weather and other necessary adjustments. 


We value a diverse range of experiences and are committed to creating a safe play space for children, fostering a love for the outdoors, and creating an equitable environment and community.


Interested candidates, please send a resume, cover letter, references to

41020 SR 20, Oak Harbor WA 98277

Our mission is to strengthen the resilience of families in our community with outdoor schooling that is affordable and designed for all, and to foster in our students a lasting connection to Deception Pass State Park that inspires a lifelong sense of belonging in nature.
