Preschool Director

Anonymous Phlianthropy - Beaufort, South Carolina - Full time

Experienced, Top-Flight Preschool Director

An exciting new philanthropic community-development project in southernmost South Carolina seeks an experienced early-childhood-education professional to direct the creation and then the operation of new high-quality preschool options for families—many of them rural, low-income, minority, or ESL.

Applicants with successful experience in the Cooperative Preschool model ( will be strongly favored. All candidates must demonstrate ability and enthusiasm to implement the co-op educational ethos. These schools will be structured to nurture and educate not only children (as preschools commonly do) but also their parents (a quality special to cooperatives).

Only candidates with strong previous experience will be considered: Director of an excellent preschool. Lead senior teacher at a high-performing school. Someone combining early-childhood research knowledge with practical job experience.

Candidate must live in or relocate soon to the (beautiful) region stretching from Beaufort and Bluffton, South Carolina, down to Savannah.

In addition to top-flight professional qualifications in early education, superb people skills will be needed for this job. A devotion to children, obviously, but also proven ability to communicate with, motivate, and inspire parents of all types and backgrounds.

High energy and entrepreneurial instincts are also essential—as the director will manage all aspects of creating a new school from scratch, from facilities to hiring to curriculum to licensing to recruitment.

Salary will range from $80,000-$100,000 depending on experience, with good benefits. The teachers you hire and supervise will earn above-average wages and benefits.
