The responsibilities include driving the older child to/from Montessori school, so safe/reliable transportation is a must. I am willing to reimburse for gas costs while on the job. The younger child will be home with the nanny all day. I do NOT expect the nanny to perform any meal preparation or housework. 

Our home is set up so the nanny/children have their own area which can be arranged however the nanny would like. This area will not be disturbed while the nanny is not around. So far the girls have been raised in a Montessori style, fostering independence and responsibility. 

Ideally I would like a year commitment, barring any unforeseen circumstances.

We have openings for full-time, lead teachers at the Primary, Lower Elementary, & Upper Elementary levels. 

What a unique and exciting opportunity to further Montessori in the public sector and collaboratively create a holistic, joyful learning environment in which children and adults alike grow and flourish!

This is a very positive, intentional group of people. You will have a fully equipped classroom, with the full array of Montessori materials.

Oak Run has a flourishing organic gardening and farm to fork program, including chickens and a large greenhouse, which help feed all students and staff an organic lunch everyday! We plan on expanding the farm to fork program with goats next year! The garden is so prolific that it produces enough veggies to sustain 2 community meals a month, which are open to the public and, in turn, serve as fundraisers for the garden program! These meals always end up being a bluegrass concert as well!
