Montessori 6-12 Guide, Lougratte, France

July 22, 2019

Montessori School Les Poupiots in France is hiring!

For this coming September 2019, we are recruiting a 6 to 12 years old children's Montessori guide with AMI certified diploma and, most of all, with the same state of mind as us.

Our team is now composed as following :

  • 1 AMI 3 to 6 years old children French guide,

  • 1 AMI 3 to 6 years old children English assistant,

  • 1 AMI 6-12 years old children French guide,

  • 1 AMI 6 to 12 years old children Australian assistant,

  • 2 multi-tasks founders and directors (also trained as AMI 3 to 6 years old assistant): us, Yann and Audrey.

For personal reasons, our 6-12 French guide has to move away and will have to leave our school before September. That is the reason why we are recruiting. Obviously, the person who will join our team needs to speak French fluently.

As you might have understood, respecting the original Montessori's pedagogy is very important to us. That's the reason why we are construing a highly qualified team. In the same way, we have chosen Nienhuis as pedagogical material.

Our school is in Southwestern France. It is located in a small village named Lougratte, in Lot-et-Garonne which is about 30 minutes South from Bergerac. There, we bought and reformed an old fine manor house (“maison de maitre”) which had been built in 1834. We now have two classrooms : the 3 to 6 years old children opened in March 2017 and the 6 to 12 years old opened since September 2018.

The school has a 140 000 square feet garden where we designed a large green space for the children. There they can work in the kitchen garden (grown with permaculture technic), play or observe mother nature by themselves or with the school's animals : 1 cat, 3 chickens, 2 pygmees' goat and 1 donkey.

We chose to create our Montessori school in the French countryside for the following reasons :

  • To revitalize a small village in a poor economical area (parents move from where they live according to where Montessori school are),

  • To show the children that it is possible to use existing things (instead of creating new ones) and to succeed in doing wonderful things with it going against the flow (19th century house and all furniture 2nd hand),

  • To allow the children to be as often as possible in contact with Mother nature which was so important for Maria Montessori. Unlike the majority of Montessori's schools, we decided to create ours in the countryside instead of in a city. We know that it is more difficult to find children there or to have city's children to come here but we are convinced that, for a better future, it is fundamental to connect the children to nature so as to explore and get to know it better. To do so, we invite the children to experiment ecology within the school and its outdoors and we request our team to, as much as possible, find ecological solutions in every day life.

Our school is in the heart of a global project oriented towards a future more respectful of nature whether human, animal or plant. That's the reason why it is important that people who will join us in this adventure have the same priorities or feeling towards mother nature.

If you feel that you want to be part of this project or if you have any questions to ask, we strongly encourage you to contact us so as to talk about it.

You can find some pictures of the school and the outdoors on our website : www.centre-les-loupiots.fr (choose the english version).

You can also contact us by phone : +33 607 169 291 or by email : montessori.lougratte47@gmail.com

We are looking forward to meeting you.

We are establishing the foundation in the District of Columbia for Montessori trained Teacher Leaders and communities to design and open Wildflower schools.

Who We Are:

We are an organization that provides tools and support to create beautiful, child-centered learning environments that support children, teachers, and families from diverse backgrounds as they follow life’s unfolding journeys. The model combines time-tested, research-supported Montessori methods in one-room, neighborhood-nested shop fronts with promising new ideas in parent engagement, intentional student diversity, teacher empowerment, and data-driven instruction. Wildflower aspires to give all children and families the opportunity to have access to high quality, nurturing, and inclusive learning environments.

Our Schools:

Each Wildflower school is unique and led by the teachers who bring their training and life experiences, along with a deep commitment to meeting the specific needs of their children and families. Embedded in this rich diversity of experiences and perspectives are 9 Principles that unite our schools:

  • Montessori - Providing a peaceful, mixed-age, child-directed environment;

  • Teacher Led - Committed to remaining small, non-hierarchical and responsive to the needs of children;

  • Equity - Working to create diverse, inclusive learning environments that work for justice as the foundation of peace;

  • Shopfront - A neighborhood-nested school committed to working in partnership with the surrounding community to create an environment that is healthy for children;

  • Innovation - Committed to exploring new ideas and the ongoing, scientific study and improvement of our practice;

  • Home - Blurring the boundaries of homeschooling and institutional schooling; parents are valued partners of the teacher-leaders;

  • Beauty - Cultivating a deep beauty in all things – in the design, culture and artistic expression within our school environments; in our interactions with one another; and in our relationship with ourselves;

  • Nature - Emphasizing the connection between nature and humans through a unique living-classroom design and extensive time in nature; and

  • Network - Advancing an ecosystem of independent Wildflower schools that mutually support one another.

What You Bring:

  • A deep commitment to authentic Montessori - Your expertise will position you to be a highly effective facilitator of children’s learning and to extend the values of Montessori to include the adults within your school community. Our teacher leaders have completed an AMI, AMS or other MACTE accredited training program. We are currently looking for primary and elementary trained Montessorians in the District of Columbia.

  • Entrepreneurial leadership - You are flexible, open-minded, see opportunity in obstacles, and are energized by using creativity and resourcefulness to anticipate challenges and create solutions to problems.

  • Commitment to serving diverse and multifaceted communities - You are eager to increase access to Montessori to racially and socioeconomically diverse communities and are deeply committed to supporting the development of intersectional communities. You understand the role race, along with ethnicity, gender/gender identity and sexual orientation, play in contributing to persistent inequity. You have engaged in culturally responsive and anti-racist practices with the students and families you serve.

  • Generosity of spirit - You build authentic relationships in diverse settings, practice gratitude, and lead with love. You seek advice openly and are comfortable working in a non-hierarchical organization.

  • Willingness to work hard - You have the aptitude, stamina, time, and appetite to raise yourself to the challenge of starting and leading your own school. You will not be alone, but you will be busy.

  • A desire to learn and grow - You are eager to stretch beyond your current experience, to develop new skills and expertise and to more deeply explore your purpose and potential.

What Will You Do?

  • Learn about Wildflower, develop plans, and bring your school to life through our supported School Startup Journey.

  • With the financial and operational support of the local and national Wildflower teams, find and prepare a school site - this generally involves identifying, leasing and renovating shop front space.

  • Design and create a prepared Montessori environment in alignment with your vision and the local regulations in the District of Columbia.

  • Actively market your school to recruit and enroll a racially and socioeconomically diverse mix of children and families.

  • Collaborate with 1-2 other teacher-leaders to develop a vision for an authentic Montessori school to serve the diversity of the local community.
