Due to maternity leave, we are looking for a Pikler/Gerber/Montessori inspired babies teacher. Because our centre is growing, we have decided not to recruit a maternity leave position (although you are most welcome to apply for a fixed term contract if you like).

We require a team member who would enjoy the calm of our Montessori babies classroom. Of course our room can be busy, but this is only at certain times of day, around key transition times.

You need to be an organised individual who can juggle multiple priorities and record keeping with calmness and ease. 

As an individual, you will be someone who takes pleasure in slowing down, the wonder of the child's development, and you should appreciate the joy of children achieving their first milestones. 

We are a close knit, professional team who work autonomously, yet as one. We respect each other and we nurture independence and initiative - not just with the children, as adults who work collaboratively too.

Communication needs to be a strong suit, as well as attention for detail in following our policies.

Our classroom is licensed for ~24 babies, although usually we sit at around 18 on a busy day.  We run a ratio of 1:4 plus 1 person for breaks and non-contact time. We strive for 1 hour of non contact time per 8 hour work day, but we do need you to apply to make sure that it happens!

Registered teachers, apply now! Don't let this job escape – come and make Fountain City Montessori your home away from home.
