• North London

Ref. Number: 28421

A unique opportunity to launch and take full leadership of a bespoke 6 child (aged 1-4) setting in North London, N8.

The role is perfect for an ambitious Montessorian with management experience, whose next step might have been to launch their own setting. Playhood provides the freedom to lead while being surrounded by a diverse and supportive community, with plentiful resources and materials at your disposal and a robust business structure behind you.

Playhood is a brand new independent family club. Our micro Montessori nursery and co-working space allow like-minded parents to blend home, work and childcare. But beyond nursery and co-work, we are striving to build a village. By creating deep neighbourhood connections we are rebalancing family life to foster a seamless Montessori childhood.

The Head of School role is pivotal to the Playhood model.  You will be regarded as a highly respected expert in your field and included and valued in the development of the wider model, which we plan to scale to other neighbourhoods. We are therefore seeking an exceptional person; you’ll be a passionate, entrepreneurial and creative Montessori teacher, with demonstrable experience from a highly rated setting.

You will have the freedom and support to design and deliver a curriculum and daily structure, choose and source resources and bring in external experts. With only 6 children per day, you have the opportunity to create an environment genuinely responsive to each individual child and will build strong relationships with the parent members. Based in a brand new purpose built garden studio designed by early years architects, you will have full ownership of the development of the building and garden, whose sole purpose is to house Playhood so no packing down every week!
