Position Title: Head of School, Stepping Stones Montessori
Position Description: Metro Consulting Services is currently working with a Montessori school in Michigan to find a new head of school. Stepping Stones Montessori would like the new head of school to begin in the summer of 2024.
Stepping Stones provides Montessori education on two campuses. Program offerings include Toddler through Middle School for approximately 200 children and youth. The early childhood and elementary programs are situated on a lovely, wooded, expansive property near downtown Grand Rapids. Playgrounds, wooded trails, and parking provide outdoor spaces for children and adults. The main campus houses 9 classrooms in two adjacent buildings: 1 Toddler, 5 Children’s House, 2 Lower Elementary classrooms, and 1 Upper Elementary classroom. The Middle School is in nearby Ada, about 20 minutes away, on a scenic, rural property, overlooking the Grand River.
The ideal candidate is an experienced Montessori school leader who is versed in the business aspects of running a school. The ability to balance the oversight of authentic Montessori education with school operations is essential and embraces diversity, equity, and inclusion. The art of delegation with an experienced administrative staff will be an asset for this new school leader.
Stepping Stones’ new HOS must be a strategic visionary who can communicate and implement the strategic plan in partnership with a professional, invested, and supportive Board. The HOS will effectively develop engagement with the community to join in that vision.
