Early Years teacher / Montessori Teacher
We have a lovely opportunity for a qualified teacher / Montessorian, who would like to have sole charge of their own classroom with a group of five children (8 key children approx.). The start date is flexible, between now and January 2019.
The school was established in 1997 in a pretty Victorian house, with seven classrooms and a garden. The school operates mainly during term times (38 weeks) and we have a further 9 weeks of holiday school, of which each teacher works for four or five.
The day runs from 8.15am until 4.30pm, although there is the possibility of working until 6.30pm if the successful applicant would prefer longer hours.
The school follows the Montessori method, though in our younger classes we consider teachers who have an NVQ Level 3 and are interested in doing a Montessori Practical Certificate (held for 2 weeks over the summer).
You will have responsibility for planning and implementing activities for your key children, with the help of an assistant shared between you and one other small group. You will also need to be happy communicating with parents during Parents' Evenings.
You should have a very smart appearance and be fluent in spoken and written English.
