Opening for an Executive Director of Baltimore Preschool

Bolton Hill Nursery seeks an experienced educator with a passion for early childhood learning to become our next Executive Director, with an anticipated start date of July 1, 2018.

Bolton Hill Nursery is an independent, non-religious, non-profit preschool and daycare serving children ages 2 through 5 in the historic Bolton Hill neighborhood in Baltimore. With nearly 50 years of providing play-based early learning experiences, Bolton Hill Nursery provides highly sought-after early childhood programming for over 80 students.

This is an exciting time in Bolton Hill Nursery’s history as we are fully enrolled, housed in our own fully-renovated facility, and looking for a visionary and dynamic leader to move us into the future. We offer an experienced leader the opportunity to work with a dedicated and knowledgeable faculty, a supportive Board of Directors, and a highly engaged parent community. In addition, Bolton Hill Nursery is a neighborhood school with the full support of the neighborhood.

Bolton Hill Nursery’s mission is to provide a warm and encouraging atmosphere that enhances self-concept, instills basic moral values, encourages social interaction, and enriches awareness of the natural and cultural world through play-based learning. Through art, music, nature, creative movement, sensory materials, free and dramatic play, cooking, science, stories, field trips, and outdoor play, Bolton Hill Nursery students become knowledgeable and comfortable interacting with the world.

Bolton Hill Nursery was officially founded in 1969 and is located in a beautiful building on Lanvale Street in Baltimore. Bolton Hill Nursery families represent the diversity of the area and choose the school because of the warm, welcoming community where every child is known and honored. The faculty and staff have positive, close ties with families, with each other, and with the wider community. Bolton Hill Nursery is in a stable and strong position to undergo a leadership transition.

The ideal Executive Director candidate is:
An experienced leader who will uphold and promote the mission and vision of Bolton Hill Nursery
An experienced and qualified educator who promotes current research-based best practices in play-based early childhood education
An experienced manager who can effectively supervise employees and responsibly administer the business of the school
A skilled communicator who inspires, supports, and facilitates dialog between and amongst various constituents (faculty, staff, parents, Board, and community members)
Positive and enthusiastic, open-minded and flexible
