Centre Manager

The passionate educators at Indigo Montessori North Perth are seeking candidates for the position of Centre Manager to join their team. The successful applicant would work collaboratively with the support of our Kids Club Manager and would ideally lead through example with inspiring ideas. 

If working in a Montessori setting has always been something you've been interested in, but haven't had the opportunity, we offer on the job training and guidance.  

Our Managers also work closely to support our team, so you can’t be afraid to get soil on your hands or flinch when faced with mysterious substances. These may end up smeared on your uniform by the end of the day but fear not!! a yearly shirt allocation is provided. 

When you are not spending time supporting your team, step into the newly renovated office. This features a partial wraparound balcony that is perfect for taking in fresh air and sunshine during breaks or sipping a coffee from the local cafe. The quaint heritage building has indoor environments that have recently been upcycled and has large spacious yards which includes a charming vegetable garden. 

We are seeking a high performing employee with the drive to build respectful and reciprocal relationships with children, families and staff, and the ability to lead the service to provide high - quality early learning and care.
