The Head of School Position

We are looking for a leader who shares our passion for the Montessori method and has the talent and perseverance required to quickly grow enrollment, attract and retain great staff, build a strong parent community, and ensure the educational experience for each child in every classroom is of the highest standard.

  • Creating a strong culture that embodies the mission of our organization
  • Building a strong community among staff, parents, and children
  • Ensuring delivery of an exceptional program
  • Ensuring overall profitability targets are met (including managing campus budget)
  • Working with the Assistant Head of School to ensure enrollment targets are met
  • Hiring, supporting, developing, and managing teaching staff

We'd love to talk with you if you possess:

  • Early childhood education leadership experience in a preschool, charter school, head start, or private school setting.
  • Strong organizational skills and attention to detail with a focus on results
  • Exceptional written and verbal communication skills
  • An aptitude for creating a warm and benevolent team culture
  • Strong leadership and the ability to make the tough decisions with limited information
  • A passion for getting education right through the Montessori pedagogy

What we offer:

  • A competitive salary
  • Paid time off and paid holidays
  • Access to the largest network on Montessori educators who regularly share best practices
  • Career growth and promotion opportunities
  • Health, dental, and vision insurance
  • 100% tuition discount for two children at any school within our network (we serve children 3 months through 12th grade)
  • The opportunity to contribute to a high-quality educational program that serves the individual needs of each child
  • Because we are a private, for-profit organization, this role does not require fundraising nor managing a Board of Directors!
