administrator - portland, oregon, USA

POSTED ON mar 7, 2017

This new position will supervise a small Montessori school in an exciting new neighborhood in the center of Portland Oregon. After seven successful years since opening in 2010, the founding administrator/owner is moving into retirement but will continue to oversee the financial administration and provide significant support during the new administrator’s first year.

The Montessori Children’s House in Portland has two primary classrooms and two toddler groups. Enrollment averages around 60, and we offer full-day schedules as well as a shorter day for many.

Our primary guides have been with us since we opened in 2010. Each of our lead guides trained at the AMI center in Portland, and we often hire trained assistants. We are located in an urban setting in an environmentally friendly contemporary building with facilities we designed ourselves and furnished beautifully. We make extensive use of the park across the street and a riverfront greenway connected to us by a landscaped walk. We are adjacent to transit options including light rail, streetcar, bus, and bicycle pathways.

Our parent community is supportive and diverse, and knowing them is a real bonus of working here. The staff community is likewise, and their dedication inspires the parents as well as making the children’s experience so rich.

Candidates for the position should be flexible, enjoy collaboration with colleagues, and enjoy being close to the children and knowing them all! Specific administrative experience in a school or elsewhere is desirable. The ability to relate with true understanding to parents, teaching staff, and contacts in the wider community is an essential attribute. Our leading principles as an organization emphasize shared awareness and openness generally. 

The most fundamental of all Montessori principles, we believe, is to demonstrate respect for young children as people, for their dignity, and for their enormous potential. 

We have flexibility for the position to be somewhat less the full-time at first, or to include some hours of classroom work as a substitute if the candidate so wishes.

Benefits include health insurance, professional development, paid sick leave.
