Each member of the staff Mainspring Schools makes an important impact on our organization and helps change lives in our community. We invite you to review our employment opportunities and submit your resume and cover letter to our Education Director.

Mainspring Schools is a small, NAEYC-accredited, nonprofit preschool that serves disadvantaged children in Austin. Founded in 1941, we are passionate about serving families that might not otherwise be able to afford quality early childhood care. In addition to providing high-quality educational, social and emotional guidance for our kids, we have an on-site kitchen that delivers a healthy food program, as well as dedicated staff to provide families with counseling and support services. This comprehensive, two-generation approach is designed to help young families break out of the cycle of poverty. 

We care about our community and take care of the people within it - including our staff. Mainspring is a great place to work and we welcome people who believe in the mission and want to feel challenged and fulfilled by their job. We hope you'll join us!
