Happy Hearts,Preschool Principal Jobs in Rwanda



Preschool  Principal
Happy Hearts is a Montessori Daycare and Preschool in Kigali. We are looking for a passionate Principal for our Preschool who can manage the daily routine at our school, and at the same time think about how to take Happy Hearts to the next level.
Start date: Immediately

About the school
Happy Hearts follows the Montessori philosophy where children learn at their own pace and create their own experiences. Classes take place in small, highly engaged bursts, keeping children’s minds and creativity engaged. Children are encouraged to discover, not through technology or through passive instruction, but through engaging with each other and the physical world around them.
The school provides a safe environment that puts our students at the center of their learning experience and that enables them to be happy, self-motivated, independent, curious and excited about learning.
Our mission is to develop our children into tomorrow’s leaders. We admit children from 3 to 5 years old with a maximum capacity of 40 children. The school is bilingual; English and French; therefore, it is an advantage for someone in this position to speak both languages, but it’s not a requirement.
