POSTED ON MAY 5, 2016

Versailles Montessori School, VMS, is seeking an AMI Primary teacher for July 2016 who is kind, loving and passionate about working with children, and wants to implement authentic Montessori. We feel Montessori is more than a superior educational model, it is a lifestyle, one filled with respect, support, encouragement, wonder and delight. 

Versailles, Kentucky is a rural town located in the heart of the bluegrass region. It is 15 minutes from Lexington, Kentucky and an hour from both Louisville, Kentucky and Cincinnati, Ohio providing many opportunities for cultural experiences. The central Kentucky area supports Montessori education and has many Montessori programs from toddler through high school.

VMS will begin its 30th year in 2016 and operates programs from toddler - upper elementary. The campus is situated on 10 acres with wetlands, gardens, sheep and chickens. Soon we will be installing a monarch weigh station by planting various species of wild flowers and a large, high tunnel green house to raise plants and tilapia. The founder and administrator is AMI trained from the Perugia, Italy course, taught by Signorina Paolini who worked closely with Dr. Montessori. 

VMS runs an all day Montessori primary program, 7:30am – 5:30pm, because we believe the classroom environment should be available to the students after "school hours", opposed to transferring the children to a daycare environment.

VMS provides a competitive salary, health benefits, paid professional development, paid 1/2 morning off each month and supports your training fully. We are not a parent run school, staff and administration have total control on how Montessori is implemented.
