When children come into contact with nature, they reveal their strength.”  Maria Montessori

The outdoor role requires someone who can implement and design an outdoor curriculum that has Montessori philosophy at its heart.  The considerations that are given to philosophy in the indoor environment should also apply to the outdoors.  It is a large space that is accessed by 100 children.  We are a purpose-built, community-based Montessori Casa with links to a local Montessori primary unit. We are passionate about quality Montessori and have a strong focus on professional development and continuous self-improvement.    

We are looking for a passionate head-teacher with good leadership, communication and team skills.  New Zealand Teacher Certification preferred and AMI training required.  This position is available from August 2019 with some flexibility.
