Head of School

A unique opportunity to launch a radically bespoke 6 child setting in North London, N8 for children aged 1 to 4.

We’re an independent family club. Our micro Montessori nursery and co-working space allow like-minded parents to blend home, work and childcare. Beyond nursery and co-work, we are striving to build a village. By creating deep neighbourhood connections we are rebalancing family life to foster a seamless Montessori childhood.

The Head of School role is pivotal. You will be regarded as a highly respected expert and included and valued in the development of the  wider model which we plan to scale to other neighbourhoods. We therefore expect career progression as we scale.

We are seeking an exceptional person; you’ll be a passionate, entrepreneurial and creative Montessori teacher, with demonstrable experience from a highly rated setting. You will have the freedom and support to design and deliver a curriculum and daily structure, choose and source resources and bring in external experts. With only 6 children per day, you have the opportunity to create an environment genuinely responsive to each child whilst building strong relationships with the parents
