Guidepost Montessori is looking for Lead Teachers for our lovely Guidepost Montessori in Waldorf, Maryland! We are looking for childcare, daycare or preschool teachers to help us grow the Montessori movement! No experience? That's okay too! We have our own Montessori Diploma program and cover the cost of tuition! 

Your Role 

We're looking for an enthusiastic, dedicated Lead Teacher to support a mixed-age class of preschool age children in a Montessori classroom.

In a Montessori class, teachers carefully prepare an environment that fosters independence and captivates a child’s interest. Teachers provide personalized support to each child. They work with children individually and in small groups, demonstrating how to use the materials and perform activities with them, and giving precise language to understand their experiences.  

Because of the carefully prepared environment and individualized support, children in a Montessori class have tremendous liberty to explore the environment and work on materials of their choice for as long as they want. Most importantly, the support and materials help every child develop skills, confidence, and a firm conviction that they are capable. 

 Lead Guides: 

  • Observe each child closely to understand and meet their physical, intellectual, and emotional needs  
  • Prepare a beautiful, orderly environment that fosters concentration, independence, and deep learning 
  • Cultivate independence and self-confidence by helping children ‘do it all by themselves’  
  • Provide individual and small-group lessons to support each child’s development in practical skills, literacy, math, and so much more 
  • Form personal connections with each child and cultivate a community of respect 
  • Communicate and collaborate respectfully with parents to provide the best possible support for every child 

The Montessori Prepared Environment 

Every classroom at Guidepost comes equipped with the full range of high-quality Montessori materials for the curriculum, as well as a budget for guides to personalize their space. Each classroom is set up according to the Montessori principles of beauty and order and is designed to enable every child to learn, concentrate, and confidently achieve their independence.  

We would love to talk to you if you: 

  • Enjoy working with children
  • Have strong interpersonal skills and a customer-service oriented mindset 
  • Are willing to grow and learn 
  • Have a growth mindset

What we offer: 

  • The opportunity to contribute to a high-quality Montessori program that serves the individual needs of each child 
  • Sponsored Montessori diploma and ongoing professional development through the Prepared Montessorian Institute  
  • 75% tuition discount for two children at any school in our network (we serve children from 3-months-old through 12th grade) 
  • A network of supportive peers and mentors who appreciate your valuable contributions and regularly share best practices  
  • Abundant career growth and promotion opportunities
  • A competitive salary
  • Health, dental, and vision insurance
  • Paid time off and paid holidays
