PreK Assistant Teacher, Powelton Village
I love Wonderspring because it provides me with a career where I can teach children to love learning and start their path as lifelong learners, where I have grown professionally, and support my family.
PreK Counts Lead Teacher, Pottstown
Being around the kids is the best part of work! There is no better feeling than to have 10 – 20 kids say “Hi, Mr. Bob!”, it is the most rewarding work I have ever done.
Director of Facility Operations, Mission Support
I started working at Wonderspring Colonial while in college. The Directors have always been accommodating of my school schedule. The split shift worked great as it allowed flexibility for school, homework, and to complete other things during the day. I enjoy working with the School Age children as we are able to have advanced conversations and interactions.
