Do you have a passion for nature and aren't afraid to get your hands dirty?Are you a Head Teacher looking for exposure to management responsibilities?
We are looking for you!BestStart Gillies is newly-renovated, nature-focused centre based in the heart of Epsom. We are firm believers that children will feel a sense of place, belonging and appreciation of nature if they have exposure to it from a young age.
We take our children on excursions to our local park three days a week where we encourage them to discover all the beauty nature has to offer us.
Our strong outdoor focus is complimented by a curriculum based on a combination of Montessori and Reggio philosophies. With open-ended resources constantly available to our children we are a child-led purposeful centre where we encourage freedom to express creativity at all times.
We are lucky to be culturally diverse both children and teacher-wise and this means we celebrate a range of events throughout the year including Matariki, Eid, Chinese New Year and Queens Birthday to name a few!We are seeking an outstanding Head Teacher in our Infants and Toddlers room, who can inspire and lead a small team of teachers while supporting the Centre Manager in continuing to develop and support our team to grow.
We are a unique centre working hard to teach children the importance of respecting nature and others around them.Our ideal Head Teacher will have an eye for nature and will be passionate about the learning the environment can offer.
Experience in coordinating excursions will be beneficial but not essential, as is exposure to a Montessori or Reggio Emilia environment.
