We are seeking a Guide Leader Partner to grow and expand our program. As a Guide Leader you will share educational and administrative duties with a partner who is also a Guide Leader.
Sage Montessori is a unique opportunity because the school has already opened as a Family Child Care program with a limited number of children in my home.
We have plans to relocate to a commercial building in the next few years and expand our program to serve 20-24 children, but for the initial startup we have been able to reduce risk and overhead costs by staying small.
What this means for you as a potential partner is that you would be joining the school after we are licensed, operating, and established in the community so there is less risk and greater certainty about the future.
However, because we are planning a relocation and expansion you would be involved in every step of selecting and renovating the new facility, and marketing our expanded and improved program. You will skip past the parts of the process that have the greatest uncertainty and join in time for the most creative and exciting parts of the process.
Montessori training is a requirement for a partner, however, a passionate and dedicated individual may enroll in Montessori training and become a partner.
We also encourage recent or upcoming Montessori graduates to learn more about this opportunity.
An experienced Montessori Guide is available to mentor recent graduates and support professional growth. You will have the autonomy to hone your skills while sharing with others the responsibility for learning outcomes – we want to lift you up and, at the same time, decrease the pressure to “get it right” immediately.
We are offering a one year Montessori Fellowship to serve as the primary educator for a small group (6-10) of 3 year old children in a newly established school. This is an ideal opportunity for a recent graduate to develop skills in a supportive environment with a smaller group of children.
The Montessori Fellow will prepare the environment, plan lessons, and give presentations. An experienced Montessori Guide will serve as a part time assistant and be available to mentor and support the Fellow.
This is also a rare chance to experience the gradual growth of a new school. We will begin with a cohort of 3 year old children this year and will add more children each year until we have a full mixed age cohort.
