We have an opportunity for an experienced teacher to become our Nido (0-2) team leader.

Whilst a Montessori qualification and being a registered teacher is desirable, what is essential is that you are an experienced Montessori teacher that is well planned and organised. 

You must be a people person who is keen to lead from within the team, not on top of it, and you have a strong drive to get the best out of other people. Team leadership experience is not necessary and full training and support will be given.

You will need to: 

  • Be knowledgeable about the Montessori philosophy and child development in the 0–3 year age group
  • Be knowledgeable about classroom routines
  • Enjoy the flexibility that is required to work in a busy centre with a team approach
  • Be comfortable in having difficult conversations with peers or parents
  • Be keen to mentor others through observations, goal setting and appraisals
  • Lead collaboratively to ensure that everyone in the team plays a part in the running of the classroom
  • A team player who is passionate about nurturing independence, and respecting everyone and everything.
