The Montessori School, London


Primary (3-6)

Listed 8 November 2022

We are looking for a full-time, Montessori qualified Directress for our Montessori School in SW12, commencing between now and the beginning of January 2023.

You will be responsible for your own classroom of either four or 7 children, creating a calm and happy prepared environment. We have a busy timetable of additional activities (including Philosophy for Children, Nutrition, Art Cards and Mindfulness) along with vocational sessions run by visiting teachers and of course, our Montessori Work Cycle.

This is a busy and engaging role, which requires an objective approach, empathy, enthusiasm, creativity and flexibility. The hours are 8.15am until 4.30pm on two days of the week, 8.00am until 4.15pm on one day of the week and 8.15pm until 6.30pm on two days. These days are set, so that you have a regular schedule and can make plans for your evenings. We have five set weeks of holiday (Christmas, Easter and Summer) and a further four weeks to be taken during other holiday times of your choice – so nine weeks in total. There is plenty of opportunity for continued professional development and we welcome people who are curious and keen to enhance their knowledge and skills. There will be a thorough induction during which there will be lots of time to learn about our additional curricula and you will also have a mentor to support you throughout your time at the school. The school was established in 1997 and has sole use of a lovely Victorian house.
